San Antonio Independent School District said the board of trustees voted Tuesday to approve November 3, which is Election Day, as a student holiday.
The announcement was made on the district's Facebook page. The district says it is partnering with the Bexar County Elections Office to host 40 polling sites. Those polling sites will draw increased traffic to the schools. The district said the school holiday will allow the schools to avoid disruptions to the arrival and dismissal procedures.
