District Emergency Procedures
Overnight Weather–Related Closings
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 at www.wallerisd.net. Local radio and television stations will carry announcements concerning the closing of school due to weather conditions or other emergencies. Announcements regarding school closings will begin by 6 a.m. of the day in question. The procedures for making the decision to close schools begin early in the morning when school district administrators drive 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, instead of closing the schools for the day. However, school is rarely dismissed early for inclement weather conditions because of working parents and the safety concern with sending children home without adult supervision.
Waller ISD will make every attempt to broadly communicate weather-related decisions.
*Please note that Waller ISD uses multiple communication outlets to share information in the event the community experiences power outages*
