UPDATE: FRIDAY, JAN. 12, 3:30 P.M.
Dallas ISD is monitoring weather conditions and will continue to do so throughout the holiday weekend. In anticipation of expected winter weather conditions, Dallas ISD has mobilized team members to implement preventative measures across the district. At this time, all activities and events will remain as planned for Friday, Jan. 12 and Saturday, Jan. 13.
To prevent potential infrastructure damage caused by freezing temperatures, water will be turned off in portables this weekend. Team members will conduct building checks, which would include inspecting boilers, pipes, thermostat set points, and any potential leaks.
In the event of inclement weather, the decision to open or close schools will be made by the superintendent and communicated as soon as possible to parents/guardians and team members in several ways:
Dallas ISD website homepage
Social media platforms
Local news outlets
To receive notifications about weather closings, parents are encouraged to ensure their contact information is up-to-date in PowerSchool through the Parent Portal. This can also be done by contacting their respective schools. Team members are advised to verify their contact number is correctly listed in the home field in Oracle to receive notifications about weather-related closings and other important alerts.
