Typhoon Texas – CANCELED

Due to inclement weather and flooding, we have decided to cancel the trip to Typhoon Texas today. While we were looking forward to this trip, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. On Monday, students that purchased tickets, will receive their tickets in class. These tickets will be good for any day during the summer at Typhoon Texas. We appreciate your support and understanding.
