"Reel Reviews: New ‘The Invisible Man’ has updated thrills and chills for modern horror fans" by: Jessica Shepard

   The newly adapted movie, “The Invisible Man” is riding high at No.1 in theaters worldwide after a stellar opening weekend with over $49.2 million in revenue. 
   Now, I vaguely remember the original “The Invisible Man” 1933 black and white film version which functioned as an adaptation from H.G. Wells’ novel of the same name. 
   But, this version is much more modern and features a cautionary tale about how women can be manipulated in abusive relationships. 
   The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. 
   Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with wealthy scientist Adrian Griffin (Cohen), Cecilia Kass (Moss) drugs him with a medication called Diazepam and sneaks through the house. 
   She has her bags already packed and has arranged to disable the security cameras to make a clean escape.

BCISD works to reassure BCJH parents, students

   On Monday, February 24th, a small group of Bay City Junior High students attended a field trip to Rice University. 
   Following that field trip, the University identified a research staff member who may have possibly come into contact with a COVID-19 positive case.
   The staff member’s presence at Rice University was limited and occurred most recently Feb. 24 and 25. 
   At this time, we have no reason to believe our students came into contact with the individuals identified by Rice University and/or were exposed to the COVID-19.
   The health and safety of Bay City ISD Students, faculty, staff, and parents is our highest priority. 
   The parents of students who attended the field trip are being contacted and those students will be evaluated for symptoms associated with the virus.
