Disinfecting Mitchell Elementary School

Bryan ISD Custodial Supervisor Rick Scott sprays cafeteria tables with disinfectant at Mitchell Elementary School Tuesday morning.

The Bryan school district announced Monday night that campuses would remain closed through April 10 amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Superintendent Christie Whitbeck said in a statement emailed to parents that the earliest return to school would be April 13.

The decision follows an order by Brazos County and the cities of Bryan and College Station for residents to stay at home except for essential needs through April 7.

The school district's "grab and go" lunch and breakfast distribution will continue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Jones Elementary School, Bryan High School, Long Intermediate School and Kemp-Carver Elementary School. Beginning March 30, Navarro Elementary School will be added as a distribution site during the same times.

Bryan and College Station school districts had earlier announced that campuses would reopen for classes April 6.
