SAN ANGELO, Texas — Update (4 p.m. Feb. 7): The water pressure issue at Central High School on Oakes campus has been resolved.

According to an SAISD release, all in-person ninth grad students will return to campus Monday, Feb. as regularly scheduled.

The district said its main priority is the safety of the students and staff. 

The district thanks the City of San Angelo for fixing the water main break, as well as the Central on Oakes students, families, and staff for their understanding and cooperation.

Original story

Because of water pressure issues at the Central High School on Oakes campus, related to a City of San Angelo water main break, out of an abundance of caution, all Central on Oakes ninth grade students will not report to campus Friday, Feb. 5.

A release from the San Angelo Independent School District said students will instead connect online through Schoology.

The City is working to repair the water main in an attempt to bring the water pressure back to the campus, but at this time the issue is expected to continue throughout Friday with little, to no access to water.

Students will need to use the Schoology Learning Management System, and will be expected to log in to all courses through Schoology and 1) complete an assignment; 2) make progress in the course; or 3) communicate with the teacher through Schoology.

All students must log into their second period for attendance purposes, the release said.

Completion of assignments and communications can occur throughout the day and does not necessarily have to occur during the scheduled class period. Extracurricular activities and athletic schedules will be communicated by coaches and sponsors.

Students who have scheduled classes at Central High School main campus may attend those in-person, but are not required; or may log in to those classes through Schoology.

Central High School on Oakes students can pick up “grab-and-go” curbside lunches as part of the free meals for all children between 1 p.m. and 1:35 p.m. at Lone Star Middle School, 2500 Sherwood Way.

Parents and students will not need to pre-order meals through SchoolCafe.
