If you live in Sissonville and have a child at Bonham Elementary you know the drill. When it rains hard, the creeks rise, causing flood concerns at the school.

Thursday, students left at noon because of the rising water.

Early dismissal because of high water may not be a unique occurrence for the Bonham Elementary School, but it's definitely an inconvenient one.

Watching the clouds and following the rain is just part of being a parent here at Bonham. They say after experiencing one, you know the drill. But the parents aren't the only ones prepared for situations like this, the kids are too.

Evacuations and dismissals like this don't go unpracticed. In fact, they had one here recently and it went almost as good as the real deal.

Rising water is becoming a rising inconvenience during rain storms but has taught Bonham parents, students, and staff to be ready.

Now just because these parents are ready for situations like this, they do hope something is done to end this flooding inconvenience. They want a new school built out of the flood zone.
