EULA, Texas - UPDATE: The female student has been listed in fair condition as of 4 p.m. Tuesday. The superintendent tells KTXS maintenance crews have combed the area looking for more snake activity in the part of campus where she was bit.
It was a rough start to the school year Monday for one Eula ISD student.
