Marfa ISD Closing Campuses for Lunch Due to Safety Concerns

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

MARFA - NewsWest 9 received some clarification to a story we ran earlier this week about Marfa schools going to closed campuses at lunch.

Marfa School leaders tell NewsWest 9, the decision to keep kids on campus for lunch is all about safety, but not from possible border violence as NewsWest 9 previously reported.

They're mostly concerned with kids rushing to get to lunch and back to campus on time.

They've even had a few close calls when it comes to car accidents.
