This evening, Alvin ISD received notice that the Shadow Creek Ranch Area is experiencing problems with their municipal water service. In a release issued by the City of Pearland, it was stated, “due to a major equipment failure at the Kirby Water Production facility, the City of Pearland public water system is issuing a notice to customers to boil their water prior to consumption.” Based on their current understanding of the issue, the City anticipates conducting a water test tomorrow morning, with results anticipated within 24 hours.
Alvin ISD is currently enacting a plan that will enable our schools to remain open and provide our students a safe learning environment. We do ask that if you are able, please consider sending your child to school with a bottle of water or two.
Alvin ISD crews are currently mobilizing to ensure drinking water coolers are stationed throughout each of the impacted campuses by tomorrow morning. Alvin ISD’s Child Nutrition Department is enacting their contingency plan, which includes transporting drinking water to accommodate food preparation and sanitation. The water pressure available at each of the impacted campuses will enable the toilets to remain functional.
We are confident that the plans that have been put in place will enable our students to return to school and be provided a safe learning environment. We make the commitment to keep you informed should additional changes occur.
