Dallas ISD announced that 12 schools are closed, due to tornado damage, according to NBCDFW.com.

Six campuses are waiting for Oncor to restore power:

  • Hillcrest High School
  • Medrano Middle School
  • Franklin Middle School
  • Dealey Montessori
  • Joe May Elementary School
  • Kramer Elementary School

Six DISD schools received more significant storm damage.

  • The district is temporarily relocating Burnet, Cigarroa and Pershing Elementary Schools to Loos Field House, starting Wednesday.
  • Walnut Hill Elementary is probably a total loss, according to DISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa. Walnut Hill’s students and staff will move to vacant space at Tom Field Elementary.
  • Cary Middle School may never be occupied again, according to Hinojosa. Cary’s students will be reassigned based on geography to Franklin and Medrano, starting Wednesday.
  • Students at Thomas Jefferson High School will have the most dramatic change. They will be moved to West Dallas’ Thomas Edison Middle School, which is a vacant facility DISD was using as a teacher training space.
