Inclement Weather and Emergency Closing of Schools

Procedures for Emergency Closing of Schools and Offices

As we all know, weather on the Gulf Coast of Texas can be anything but predictable! Be prepared.

The safety of our students and staff and any visitors to our schools and facilities is our highest priority. During severe weather situations, our schools and facilities operate using emergency protocols as part of the National Incident Management System in response to severe weather notifications by local emergency officials. A severe weather hotline is available to parents to learn about the latest information from the District regarding a severe weather occurrence.
