Round Rock ISD announced Thursday that students will attend an inclement weather makeup day on May 29. According to a letter from the district, the inclement weather day on Tuesday, Jan. 16, combined with a late start earlier in the year due to heavy rains from Hurricane Harvey, placed the district below the minimum number of instructional minutes required by the state. The district decided to make up for those lost minutes on May 29, which was originally scheduled as a teacher workday.
Crews are working to repair a wastewater line adjacent to Weiss Lane after the line was struck by an Oncor utility company Thursday morning, according to a press release from the city. To contain the leak, the city shut off the lift station to stop the flow of wastewater to the broken pipe. Pump trucks are servicing the pump lift stations along the line, according to the release. The city said there is currently no threat to Lake Pflugerville drinking water. Weiss Lane remains open to public use.
Two draft calendars for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years were presented to the Round Rock ISD board of trustees during its regular meeting Jan. 18. A committee of district and campus administrators, teachers and parents designed the draft calendars. The committee was required to include 75,600 instructional minutes and chose to bank at least two days of instructional minutes in case of inclement weather days.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
