Return to the main story,

Close to 100,000 Texas students and about 44,000 Louisiana students were still out of public schools late last week because of Hurricane Rita’s landfall in southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. Many more had missed a few days of school as districts followed evacuation orders.
