DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Several schools in the Garland ISD were impacted by Sunday night's storms. Classes were canceled on Monday at Park Crest Elementary, Dorsey Elementary, Williams Elementary and Houston Middle School. 

"It was not due to damage to the campuses," said GISD Chief Financial Officer Dr. Brent Ringo.  Instead, those campuses were in neighborhoods that did not have power. The neighborhood near Williams Elementary suffered some of the worst damage in the city. 

"There were trees laying in the street, homes with fences down...there were a couple of businesses that were completely leveled.  That campus is still not online," Dr. Ringo said.  

Class will resume on Tuesday for students at all four campuses that were closed today. Things should be back to normal at Park Crest Elementary, Dorsey Elementary and Houston Middle School. Students at Williams Elementary will report to Park Crest Elementary for their classes.
