We take several steps to assess if it’s safe to hold school as normal when a weather-related event is anticipated or occurs. This includes participating in National Weather Service webinars, reviewing local forecasts, and conducting a thorough assessment of road and bridge conditions across the district by the Waco ISD Chief of Police and Director of Transportation. We also consult with surrounding districts. Our goal is to communicate any weather-related closures or delays as soon as possible. When such changes occur, the District will use a variety of media to keep you informed. However, in some cases, the timing of weather events means that decisions can’t be made until early in the morning, the same day as a closure or delay.

    We ask for your patience and understanding during the times when these decisions have to be made. Please remember that our utmost concern is the safety of students, parents and employees.
