Information About Closings

Pearland ISD campuses are occasionally closed due to bad weather such as flooding, snow and ice. The following information should help families understand what procedures Pearland ISD uses to close the school district.


Making the Decision to Close Schools

When bad weather is predicted, the district has personnel designated to drive the district during the early morning hours to determine if the roads are passable. 

The superintendent also coordinates with other neighboring districts regarding the decision to close schools due to inclement weather. Factors for consideration in closing schools include flooding throughout the district, roads impassable due to high water, patches of ice on roadways and bridges across the district, and weather predictions for later in the day.

Within Pearland, it is possible that some areas may experience minor flooding or icy patches for a short period of time, but the majority of the district may not experience any flooding or ice on the roads.


Notification Process for Closing and Delays

Under most circumstances, a decision to close school due to bad weather is made by 5:30 a.m. If enough information is available, school district officials may make a decision the night before,  notifying families ahead of time.

If the district is closed, the announcement will first be posted on Pearland ISD's website and social media accounts. Families will also be notified by automated phone calls, texts and email. It is important for families to keep their contact phone number current in Skyward Family Access to ensure receiving notifications from the district.

Pearland ISD will also provide updates to local television and radio stations.


Other Important Information

During a school closing, families are discouraged from calling their campus since no employees will be answering the phones late at night or early in the morning. Pearland ISD's website, social media accounts, Skyward email and calls/texts coming directly from the district are the quickest sources of information for school closing information updates.
