Inclement Weather Procedures
Inclement Weather Procedures
When inclement weather is a possibility, Prosper ISD district officials continually monitor weather conditions during the overnight and early morning hours. The district takes several factors into consideration before making a decision to cancel school, delay school, or dismiss school early due to inclement weather. These primary factors include:
- The health, safety, and welfare of students and staff; and the safe transport of students and staff to school.
- Teenage drivers on the roads and their safety
Cancellations, Delays, and Early Releases – How Decisions are Made
When inclement weather threatens normal school operations, the following steps are taken:
- District officials evaluate the roadways and travel conditions across the district.
- The Superintendent consults with Prosper ISD transportation staff and district safety and security personnel.
- After taking into account all the information that is received from external and internal sources, the Superintendent will make a decision as early as possible whether to delay or cancel school.
The Communication Process – What Happens Next
When a decision is made to cancel school, delay school, or dismiss school early, the district will notify parents using Blackboard Connected through email, phone, and text notification alerts and the Prosper ISD website will be updated as quickly as possible.
Information about school closures, delays, or early dismissal will also be communicated through the following media, including but not limited to:
- Prosper ISD Twitter: @ProsperISD
- Prosper ISD Facebook
- Prosper Instagram: @prosper_isd
- Local television stations
- Local radio stations
Because of the uncertainty of weather conditions, we ask that parents and staff monitor local media, the Prosper ISD website, and email before heading to school or sending children to the bus stop. An important rule of thumb to note is, if there is no announcement from Prosper ISD, then classes will be held on a normal schedule.
