Uvalde CISD superintendent says the district is working on new plans serve it’s students and staff on different campuses for the upcoming school year.
Students and staff of Robb Elementary School will not be returning to the campus following the deadly shooting on May 24 that claimed the lives of 19 students and 2 teachers.
“We are heartbroken over the loss of our teachers and students, and hold each of their family members close to our hearts.” Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, Superintendent Dr. Hal Harrell said in a statement on Wednesday.
The district says they are making plans to serve students and faculty at other campuses and will provide additional information at a later date on how they will carry out these changes.
“We know that our lives will never be the same, but we also know that we will join together to honor the lives we lose and build a stronger Uvalde for those who remain,” Harrell said in a statement.
State Sen. Roland Gutierrez , D-San Antonio, said in an interview with KSAT television station that the federal government may tear down the school.
Gutierrez said President Joe Biden told him “we’re going to look to raze the school and build a new one.”
Uvalde superintendent did not deny or confirm reports that Robb Elementary School may be demolished following these events, but did say they are continuing to work with law enforcement through the investigation.
“Because the investigation is ongoing and information is evolving, we are going to reserve comment until all state and federal agencies have completed their review,” he said.
