WFISD Handing Out Bottled Water To Elementary Students

Some Wichita Falls elementary students are getting some relief from the heat.

Wichita Falls Independent School District is starting to hand out bottled water to students who ride the bus after school.

Coca-Cola donated about 80 cases of water to the school district.

WFISD food service ices the water down and places them in coolers for students waiting for the bus.

The district says while some of the buses are air conditioned, many are not, leaving students confined in a hot, uncomfortable vehicle until they get home.
