Back to school

Blaschke Sheldon Elementary fifth and sixth grade students are welcomed to school by military personnel from Naval Station Corpus Christi. Ingleside Independent School District campuses, with the exception of Gilbert J. Mircovich (GJM) Elementary opened Thursday, Sept. 21, after being closed due to Hurricane Harvey. Youngsters were high-fived by the sailors and given a snack before heading into the building for the school day. A staff members said the Navy personnel arrived before school began and helped students by performing the ceremony to hoist the American and Texas flags. IISD officials are hopeful GJM will be open by next week, beginning Oct. 2, as those students are now being houses at Ingleside Primary, and due to the number of Ingleside students, there is no room to accept displaced students in prekindergarten through fourth grades. That will change once GJM opens. For more information about IISD schools, go to the school’s website
