Glen Rose Junior High to remain closed due to COVID-19 outbreak, Trenton and Venus ISD schools reopen

A North Texas school will be shut down longer than planned because of a COVID-19 outbreak.

Glen Rose Junior High School in Somervell County was supposed to reopen Tuesday after closing in the middle of last week.

The school had 42 active cases, which is about one in 10 students. 

The Glen Rose ISD superintendent said things are still not under control at the junior high. 

No other campuses have closed.

Also, learning at home starts Tuesday for students at Brentfield Elementary School in Richardson ISD. They’ll be learning remotely for 10 days because of an outbreak at the school.
