AXTELL, Texas (KWTX) -Axtell ISD will be closing its doors for four days starting on Friday.

The district’s superintendent Dr. JR Proctor says the district is experiencing the highest surge of cases since the pandemic began.

Schools will reopen next Tuesday.

Proctor says after school activities during that time period have also been canceled.

“I would urge you this weekend to exercise as much caution as possible when surrounding yourself with people whose health status is in question,” Proctor said in a message to parents.

“I would also urge you to be very careful hanging around with anyone that says they have allergies or a sinus infection, due to the fact that an overwhelming majority of our positive cases have begun with similar symptoms,” he wrote.
