DCS assisting in Hurricane Emergency.


Dallas County Schools is assisting in local hurricane emergency response. Up to four activity buses will pick up evacuees being flown into Love Field to a shelter in Irving. For operational periods between route times, DCS will insert additional yellow buses as needed. Military aircraft will be delivering 50 to 350 passengers daily as needed.

“I deeply appreciate our partners at DCS, especially since this is happening on the first day of school," said Dallas County Judge Clay... Jenkins. "We regularly conduct drills with their professional staff and drivers to prepare for just this type of emergency."

DCS staff quickly rounded up buses and drivers to assist in the effort. DCS driver Nettie Hobbs is in photo below.

“We have an amazing staff who rallied to help out Houston families during this devastating natural disaster,” said Leatha Mullins, Superintendent, Dallas County Schools. “We are here to do whatever we can to ease their burden during this time.”
