Communication & Media

Temple ISD has a commitment to strong, two-way communication between the District and the community we serve. 

 

2014-2015 BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION

Severe Weather

In the event of severe weather during overnight or early morning hours, the decision to close schools or delay start times will be made no later than 6am on the day in question.

Parents and families may receive notification of severe weather delays/closings in several ways:
  • Local media - We will update the following local television and radio stations by 6am of the status of classes (open/delayed/closed):
    • News 8 (Time Warner Cable)
    • KCEN (Channel 9)
    • KWTX (Channel 10)
    • KXXV (Channel 25)
    • Cumulus Broadcasting (101.7, 103.1, 105.5, 106.3, AM1400)
    • ClearChannel Broadcasting (Waco 100, 95.7, 97.5, 102.5, AM1460)
    • Star 92.9, KBCT 94.5
  • School Messenger System - Temple ISD uses an automated call and email system to notify parents in the district database.
  • TISD.org - School delay/closings will be posted on the front page of the District website.
  • Facebook & Twitter - Follow @templeisd for another source of news about TISD.
  • School Messenger push notificiation.  To download the app, visit schoolmessengerservices.com 

The procedure for making the decision to close schools begins early in the morning when school personnel in each area of the city drive the streets near the neighborhood schools to check road conditions. Personnel confer with the weather bureau, police department, and gas and utility companies about forecasts, road conditions and available energy for heating the buildings. The personnel report the findings to the Superintendent of Schools (or designee) who makes the final decision if a delay or closing is needed.

Classes will not be held if it is determined that buses are unable to operate safely; if electric service at schools is disrupted; or if natural gas to schools is curtailed.

If severe weather occurs during the school day, student safety will be considered the first priority. School is often the safest place for students and staff during severe weather. At school, they are properly supervised and have the opportunity to eat breakfast and/or lunch. In the event of an early dismissal, school officials will make every attempt to feed the students a meal before releasing them.
