TAFT, Texas — The Taft Independent School District put out notice on social media at around 10:30 a.m. Friday that students and faculty are sheltering in place.

Some of our Woodroe Petty Elementary Students had the opportunity to... participate in the City of Taft Downtown Sidewalk Groundbreaking Ceremony this morning. This is Phase 2 and 3 of the Downtown Revitalization Sidewalk Project. Thank you to Taft ISD Administrators and Students, City of Taft, Taft EDC, TQIC, TXDOT and all local businesses for your support on this project.
