Texas High School is closing for summer school

The school’s enrollment dropped below 1,000 students in the fall of 2016 and its enrollment dropped again in 2017 to fewer than 1,100.

The high school is now in the process of moving to a new building.

The school’s new superintendent said the new building will have an auditorium, a gym, an athletic field, a cafeteria, a library and a science building.

He said the school will have more space for faculty.

“We’ve done the research to see if we can get the space in a new school that will allow us to provide a better education for our students,” said John D. McCray, who is taking over as interim superintendent.

The announcement comes as a backlash over the school’s closure and its lack of funding has been building.

In the last year, Texas has been hit by a series of storms that killed four people, damaged thousands of homes and forced thousands of residents to flee their homes.

The closures have prompted a wave of calls for schools to close and have drawn the ire of parents and students.

In November, more than 100 Texas lawmakers signed a letter to the governor calling for the state to close the school, and more than 200 students signed an online petition calling for its closure.

State lawmakers have repeatedly blocked any plan to close or relocate the high school.

Last week, a federal judge blocked the closure of a public high school in Houston that was set to reopen next year.
