Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated Independent School District (COCISD) Superintendent LaTonya Goffney said schools in the COCISD will resume Monday, Sept. 22. The Coldspring Trojans were scheduled to play Diboll this Friday night at home. That game has been rescheduled and will now be played Saturday, Sept. 20, in Diboll, according to Goffney.
