The Red Cross notified Mr. Haley at 3:30 pm today that The DeWitt County Sheriff's Office issued a voluntary evacuation order of all affected areas around or near the Guadalupe River. The river is expected to reach levels of 44 feet.
The Cuero Intermediate School gym will be used as a temporary housing site for flood evacuees beginning at 5:00 pm on Monday, May 25, 2015. Staff and volunteers will be on-hand tomorrow at 3:30 pm to ready the facility for the people who need to stay there.
We have been encouraged to keep things as normal as possible, so we are still planning to have school as usual at this time. However, we are maintaining constant contact with one another as well as Red Cross, first responders, and surrounding communities for the latest updates.
We will remain vigilant and conservative in our effort to keep everyone safe and fully apprised of the situation as more information becomes available. Notices will go out via our emergency call tree phone list, Blackboard robo call system, radio, and our social media sites.
Jim Haley, Superintendent
