Many North Texas schools abandon virtual learning plans, cancel classes for the week

Most North Texas school districts have canceled classes for the rest of the week.

While the roads are still covered in snow and ice, many had hoped to hold all virtual classes starting Wednesday or Thursday. But the uncertainty about power forced them to cancel that too.

Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Plano, Garland, Irving, Grand Prairie, McKinney, Frisco, Mesquite, Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Denton, Richardson, Lewisville and Allen ISDs are among those now closed until Monday.
