Parade will cause massive traffic issues
The Arlington ISD will be closed on Friday, Nov. 3, to allow students and staff to celebrate the Texas Rangers as World Series Champions.
“This is the first championship win for the Rangers in their history,” said Dr. Steven Wurtz, interim superintendent, Arlington ISD. “It’s a huge day for sports fans, and we’re excited to celebrate with the team and the community.”
The Texas Rangers organization requested Arlington ISD marching band students to perform. The district is coordinating students from all six traditional high schools to make up one combined band. “We are thrilled about this opportunity for our students,” said Wurtz. “They are so talented and everyone will know that after they see them perform at the parade.”
Wurtz said that massive traffic issues are expected which will make transportation to and from schools and other district facilities difficult throughout the day. All sporting events on Friday will continue as scheduled.
