Hurricane Harvey has affected so many families, and Burleson ISD is committed to helping students and families from any of the impacted areas. Burleson ISD will enroll students immediately and work with families to best prepare students for school.
No student will be turned away.
“Families who may come to Burleson as a result of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey have been through enough, and we are ready to welcome students with open arms,” said BISD Superintendent Dr. Bret Jimerson. “Our job will be to help provide some normalcy in students’ days, and that is exactly what we will do. We will take care of them.”
Schools and student groups are collecting monetary donations, toiletry items, supplies and more, to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Volunteer opportunities will be shared as we learn more.
