Inclement Weather Procedure
The often unpredictable North Texas weather can affect Wylie ISD. The Superintendent usually makes the decision to close school by 5:30 a.m. after checking road conditions across the district and consulting with the city and neighboring superintendents.
Closings are seldom announced the evening prior to the school day and once school is in session for the day, classes are seldom released early due to the difficulty of notifying parents and to the difficulty that working parents have in picking up their child(ren). Decisions involving after school and evening events will be made by the Superintendent’s Office.
During inclement weather, parents and staff are encouraged to check the Wylie ISD website at https://www.wylieisd.net/ or the district Facebook page, www.facebook.com/wylieisd for the most up-to-date information. Once the decision is made, these sites will be updated first, and key Wylie ISD personnel including transportation and maintenance supervisors, principals and other supervisors will be notified. The district will also utilize Blackboard Connect, our parent notification system. The Wylie ISD Communications Department will notify local media outlets next. School will be open unless otherwise posted.
School will be closed due to inclement weather only when absolutely necessary because of hazardous road conditions or the curtailment of natural gas or electricity for heating of public buildings. Texas Education Agency policy requires that missed days be made up so it is best to follow the original school calendar if possible.
