THRALL, Texas — All school buses in one Central Texas district have been idled after their fan belts were cut.
A message on the Thrall Independent School District website said school buses were not able to run on Monday due to vandalism at the bus barn.
School secretary Ann Sisemore told The Associated Press that classes were going on as scheduled. Parents were advised to drop their children off at schools in Thrall, a town of about 1,000 located 45 miles northwest of Austin.
A message left for the school superintendent was not immediately returned. Thrall police also did not immediately comment.
