Update on Seguin Elementary Relocation - February 1, 2019

We could not be more proud of our Seguin Elementary students, staff, and families! As you may have heard, a faulty cap on a sewer line resulted in a sewer gas leak at the campus this morning. As a result, students and staff were relocated to the Activity Center at the Ninth Grade Center.

Our thanks to the Weatherford ISD staff who quickly arrived at the NGC campus to help with the Reunification Process as parents arrived to pick up their children; the Child Nutrition department for providing water bottles, snacks, and lunches; and our Weatherford Police Department, Texas School Resource Officers for providing an added layer of security. It was truly a team effort, and as a result, the majority of students were reunited with their families in one hour.

School will resume at Seguin Elementary on Monday, February 4th.

Seguin Elementary Relocation - February 1, 2019

As you may be aware, there was a raw sewage smell this morning at Seguin Elementary. While administrators are working to determine the source of this smell, students and staff are being relocated to the Ninth Grade Center - Activity Center as a precautionary measure. All students will travel to the Activity Center on Weatherford ISD buses.

The Activity Center is located near the back of the Ninth Grade Center campus just south of Kangaroo Stadium and adjacent to the baseball parking lot.

Beginning at 10 am, parents of Seguin Elementary students may pick them up at the entrance to the Activity Center. In addition, you may contact anyone listed as an emergency contact in our Skyward system to pick up your child. To pick up your child, please park in the baseball parking lot located east of Kangaroo Stadium and walk to the Activity Center. For your child’s safety, identification will be required from those picking up students.

Weatherford ISD will provide lunch for students. If students remain at the Ninth Grade Center at the end of the day, we will provide bus transportation for those students who normally ride the bus.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our primary concern. We are implementing this relocation as a precaution this morning. Thank you for your patience as we work through this relocation process.
