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