SISD Closes School for the Remainder of the Week

Smithville Schools will be closed for the remainder of the week. Additionally, all extra-curricular activities have been canceled for the week. 
A number of our school families have lost their homes or have been displaced this week. We are compiling a list of these families so that we can offer our support. If you would like to donate Brookshire Brothers, Wal-Mart or HEB gift cards or money to the families you may make donations at Central Office or at one of the campus offices starting on Monday, September 12, when we hope we will be able to resume school. 
Please continue to keep the fire fighters, volunteers, families and our community in your thoughts and prayers and please be safe.
