Tyler ISD reminds parents, community of Inclement Weather procedures

November 6, 2017



We are committed to providing families with accurate and prompt information in the event of inclement weather and other urgent matters impacting our schools and community. If weather becomes inclement during the evening/night hours, the transportation department has staff members prepared to check the road conditions as early as 4:00 am. They check to see if conditions are safe for buses, giving consideration to rural roads, bridges, etc. The Director of Transportation will then be prepared to share this information with the Superintendent. The Superintendent then makes the decision to announce either delayed opening or school closure by approximately 6:00 a.m.  
The District uses the following methods of communication to relay urgent information to District families and the broader community:

  • Parent Notification System: rapid phone call and text messaging system

  • District Website

  • District Social Media (Facebook & Twitter) 

  • TISD-TV: airs on Suddenlink cable channel 19 (Watch Online)

  • Local Radio and TV Stations (KLTV 7, KETK 56, CBS 19, KTBB, KOOI, Tyler Paper, BREEZE, KYYK, 98.3, KOYE)
