Round Rock ISD adjusts operations for schools affected by boil water notice

Round Rock ISD says it has adjusted operations at 20 of its schools and four district facilities due to the ongoing boil water notice in effect in Austin.

The district says its staff has been working through the weekend to ensure all students and staff at the affected campuses have access to clean drinking water and necessary resources.

Bottled water and water stations will be provided to all affected campuses. To conserve as much as possible, the district is suggesting parents send students with refillable water bottles, filled with either bottled water or tap water that has been boiled for at least three minutes. Staff should also bring refillable water bottles if possible.

Cafeterias have adjusted their menus to minimize the need for water and have clean, boiled water available when necessary.
