In the event of closing school due to weather conditions or other emergencies, Waller ISD will utilize the Parent Communication System and post the weather-related information on our school district website (www.wallerisd.net). Local radio and television stations will carry announcements concerning the closing of schools due to weather conditions or other emergencies. Announcements regarding school closings will begin by 6 a.m. on the day in question. The procedures for making the decision to close schools begin early in the morning when school district administrators drive the roads to check road conditions. The school district will not hold school if buses are unable to operate safely. The Superintendent and administrators confer with the weather bureau and emergency management officials about forecasts and road conditions to make the final decision to open or close schools.
Waller ISD may open on a delayed schedule or dismiss early, instead of closing the schools for the day.
Waller ISD will make every attempt to broadly communicate school closure decisions.
Please note that Waller ISD uses multiple communication outlets to share information in the event the community experiences power outages.
All telephone messages from Waller ISD that are missed may be retrieved by calling 1-855-671-3429.
Safety Drills & Emergencies
Each campus will conduct various safety drills throughout the school year. Waller ISD has implemented the Standard Response Protocol (SRP), which is based on the response to any given situation, not on individual scenarios. Like the Incident Command System (ICS), SRP demands a specific vocabulary but also allows for great flexibility. The premise is simple - there are five specific actions that can be performed during an incident - Hold, Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter in Place. Practicing drills helps us all prepare should we be faced with an emergency situation.
A Regular Meeting of the School Safety and Security Committee of Waller ISD will be held Tuesday, August 30, 2022, beginning at 12:15pm at WISD Admin Bldg. Board Room, 2214 Waller St, Waller, Texas 77484. The subjects to be discussed or considered or upon which any formal action may be taken are listed below. Items do not have to be taken in the same order as shown on this meeting notice. Unless removed from the consent agenda, items identified within the consent agenda will be acted on at one time. This meeting will be recorded.
