Winter storms ravaged the state, leaving widespread power outage and tons of damage.

Homes weren't the only structures affected, however. Schools faced the same problems seen seen in houses and businesses, such as busted pipes and water damage, reported NBC DFW.

Now that power is being restored in many areas, schools are trying to assess the damage, and some schools are closing or going virtual until it is all sorted out.

The Dallas Independent School District announced on Twitter that there will be no classes on Monday or Tuesday while crews survey the damages, including virtual classes.

The school district is still offering curbside meals on Monday, including breakfast, lunch, and a snack for two days.

Schools in Fort Worth are canceled on Monday and Tuesday, including all in-person and virtual learning classes. Crews are working to fix broken pipes and get the schools back online.

There are 25 locations in the county where "meals-to-go" will be distributed. Click here to see the full list of locations.

Arlington ISD will be closed on Monday and Tuesday. Virtual classes are expected to resume on Wednesday.
