August 26, 2020

(Aug. 25, 2020) Out of an abundance of caution for our kids, teachers, and drivers Alto ISD will be cancelling school on Thursday, Aug. 27 due to Hurricane Laura.

"We do not want to jeopardize buses being on the roads, kids in portable buildings, or staff members traveling to and from work," AISD officials stated. "This will include canceling the JV football game in Troup, as well as any after school practices or activities."

Friday will be a wait-and-see based on conditions and power.

As of 4 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 26, the Stella Hill Memorial Library and the offices of Alto City Hall and the Economic Development Corporation will be closed Thursday, Aug. 27.
