School Closing Procedures
If schools will be closed because of severe weather, the district website will be updated by 6 a.m. on the day in question.
School closing information will also be available from these resources:
- District website
- Blackboard Connect automated phone/email notification system
- District switchboard message
- SMS Text
When severe weather causes hazardous driving conditions or any other conditions exist that might delay the opening of school or cause schools to be closed, parents and students are encouraged to check the district website and social media pages and local television stations for current news reports.
The superintendent considers several factors before deciding to close schools, delay school start times or dismiss early:
- The health, safety and welfare of students
- The transportation of students
- The disruption to the home when school starts late, dismisses early or is closed
No announcements will be made when campuses will remain open with regularly-scheduled hours.
The Executive Director of Communications will notify the following television stations if there will be any changes in the normal operating procedures of the district:
- KTRK-TV Channel 13
- KHOU-TV Channel 11
- KPRC-TV Channel 2
- KXLN-TV Channel 45
- KRIV-TV Channel 26
