On Thursday, Eanes ISD issued students grades K-5 district-issued devices to use in the case the district closes schools.

Austin ISD said it will be canceling large gatherings, field trips, field days, spring break camps and outside building rentals through April 3. UIL events are being considered on a case-by-case basis.
