Bad Weather Procedures

Closings and Delays May Occur 

 

Brownsboro ISD campuses are occasionally closed due to bad weather such as snow and ice.  Other circumstances such as power outages or other utility problems may also cause a single campus or the entire school district to close.  Instead of closing, there are also times when campuses or the school district will delay the start of school for safety reasons.  The following information should help parents understand what procedures BISD uses to close or delay the start of school. 

 

Notification Process For Closings and Delays 

 

Under most circumstances, a decision to close or delay 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 and parents will be notified before 10 p.m.

 

If school is closed or delayed, the announcement will first be posted on the BISD Website and the major Tyler television and radio stations will be notified. Because of the large number of school districts in the area, the television and radio announcements are sometimes delayed 30 to 45 minutes.

 

Information will also be posted on the BISD ISD Facebook page and Twitter account. Finally, parents will be notified by automated phone calls through the BLACKBOARD CONNECT notification system. It is important that parents keep their contact phone number current in Skyward if they want to receive Blackboard Connect notifications.

 

 
Radio and TV Stations 
In the event that the weather changes after the 10:00 p.m. newscast, the radio, and television stations below will be notified of the closure or delay of the school. Every effort will be made to notify the radio and television stations by approximately 6:00 a.m.
 
KTBB – AM 600
 
KLTV – CHANNEL 7
 
KETK – CHANNEL 56
 
KCKL – FM 95.9
 
CBS – 19
 
BEAR RADIO – KJBB-FM 94.7 or  www.brownsboro.streamon.fm
 

Please Don't Call Us - We'll Call You 

 

Parents are encouraged not to call the school offices since no employees are answering the phones late at night or early in the morning. We also ask that parents do not call the notification system back as this also slows the system down.  The notification system is not designed to receive calls back from parents. 

 

The BISD ISD website and Facebook are the quickest sources of information for a school closing. If school is not closed for the day, no announcements will be made and students should report at the normal time. The school district does not send out a Blackboard Connect notification that school is in session although it may be posted as a reminder on Facebook.

In the unlikely event that schools would be dismissed early due to bad weather or unforeseen circumstances, parents would be notified through Blackboard Connect.

  

Delayed Start of School Information 

 

If the start of school is delayed due to weather or other circumstances, school will begin two hours later. (See chart below).  Students in grades 7-12 should be aware that changes in that day's class schedule will likely occur.  They should check the campus website for additional information.
