11:30 a.m. update

Glenn High School students have returned to class and the school day will continue as normal.. The disruption as a whole lasted approximately 90 minutes. No students were ever in danger, as the smell, while irritating, was not harmful.  

10:30 a.m.

This morning, Glenn High School received reports of a “burnt rubber smell” coming from vents in certain areas of our campus. The smell spread to the point where we decided it was in the best interest of our students to move them all to the gymnasiums as we worked to identify the source of the odor.

The district’s plant services team investigated the source of the smell and determined it to be a result of roof workers burning tar. The roofing crew has ceased their work, and we are waiting for the odor to clear before sending students back to their classrooms. All students are safe, and nurses are on hand if needed.

8:45 a.m.

At Four Points Middle School, fire alarms were triggered by a faulty kiln fan in the art room, causing a brief school evacuation.  Students were bused to the Vandegrift HS cafeteria until fire department officials gave the all clear. The school day resumed as usual about 30 minutes later.

  Election Day Information

Williamson and Travis counties will use the following LISD campuses and facilities as polling places (open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.) on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6:

We take pride in being a part of the democratic process and continue to place the safety of our students as our highest priority. Security measures are in place to ensure that polling places and schools can both operate without overlapping.

We will assign a campus administrator as a liason to the election judge to minimize school day disruptions. All polling places have exterior entrances, so voters will not need to go through the school.

Barring an unforeseen circumstance, we will restrict voters from other parts of the school. If you wish to visit your student’s campus after voting, the school will ask you to go to the front office to check in using our Raptor system.

Every effort is being made to keep voters from interacting with students. If you have questions, please reach out to your campus.
