BOGATA — Rivercrest ISD will be closed Thursday and Friday after “a large number” of students and staff reported illness.

Classes are expected to resume Tuesday. The district was already scheduled to be off Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

All games scheduled for this week have been postponed as McLeod and Clarksville ISDs also canceled school amid a stark rise in Covid-19 spread. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Texas Department of State Health Services reported 173 active cases in Red River County, up from 98 on Jan. 4 when school resumed after the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays.
