February 2, 2011

NISD officials are monitoring the weather, but no decisions will be made regarding the potential closing of schools until early Friday morning. School closure information will be posted first on Facebook, Twitter, the NISD website and communicated with local media. In addition, parents will receive a phone call via SchoolMessenger in the morning.

Because of the cold temperatures, all outdoor athletic games for Thursday, Feb. 3 will be canceled. Indoor athletic events will proceed as scheduled. For more details, please see the list of weather-related cancellations.

All buses will be running on the normal schedule today.

In addition, all 110 NISD schools will open their doors early on Friday morning so that students do not have to wait outside in the frigid temperatures. Classes will begin per the regular schedule, and parents should plan accordingly. Here’s the schedule for when school buildings will open:

  • Elementary schools will open their doors at 7 a.m.
  • Middle schools will open their doors at 7:30 a.m.
  • High schools will open their doors at 8 a.m.
