Another North Texas school is closing its doors temporarily due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Boyd ISD in Wise County announced on Wednesday that it will close its elementary school for the rest of the week due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

"At this point, Boyd Elementary School staffing and attendance do not support the ratios we need to run a safe and supported instructional program," the district said in a statement.

The district plans to reopen the school on Monday.

Kemp ISD in Kaufman County made a similar move after an outbreak there across all campuses. They also plan to reopen Monday as well.
