Brenham ISD Inclement Weather Planning and Communication

Inclement Weather Planning

In cases of inclement weather, Brenham ISD works closely with city and county emergency management teams, and Durham Transportation, who deploy staff as early as 4 am to inspect roads known to be quickly impacted by rain and/or ice. 

Collectively, we gather as much information as possible and consider the impact on student and staff safety, the impact on parents if there is a delay or closure, and the impact on adequate district operations to support instruction and learning.

The superintendent will make a decision no later than 5 am for a delayed start or a school closure. The district will only initiate major communication in cases where operations are actually changed due to weather.

Delayed Start (2 Hour Delay)

The superintendent will make a decision no later than 5 am. Then, the district will initiate phone calls and emails to all parents and staff. The district will also place information on the BISD main website at www.brenhamisd.net, as well as the BISD Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Additionally, the district will do a push notification through the BISD mobile app. 

  • In the case of a delayed start, all school operations would have a two-hour delay. For example, elementary school usually starts at 8 am. In a delayed start, elementary school would start at 10 am. 
  • If your student rides the bus, the bus will come two hours later than the usual pick up time. All staff will report to work 2 hours later than the usual report time.
  • All early morning student activities and practices will be canceled.
  • School will dismiss at the regular time. 

School Closure

The superintendent will make a decision no later than 5 am. Then, the district will initiate phone calls and emails to all parents and staff. The district will also place information on the BISD main website at www.brenhamisd.net, as well as the BISD Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Additionally, the district will do a push notification through the BISD mobile app. 

  • All district offices and campuses will be closed. 
  • All activities and practices will be canceled. 

In those cases of school closure, be sure to monitor the district communication for any potential impact the following day.
