ISD does not necessarily follow surrounding schools’ decisions regarding school closure/late start/early dismissal due to inclement weather.
ISD school closings/late starts/early dismissals due to weather may be viewed on local television stations WOWT (Channel 6) and KMTV (Channel 3).
Weather-related school cancellation – School Messenger will announce school closings. The ISD Facebook page and website will also carry the information. All grade levels are included in the cancellation of school. Dormitory students will stay in the dormitory, with dormitory staff. (No classes held.) Do not bring your children to school. No ISD bus routes will run. Classes will be made up at a later date.
Two-hour late start– Buses will pick up the students two hours later than regularly scheduled bus times. Parents who drop off students should arrive two hours later than their regular drop-off time.
Weather-related early dismissal – Parents will be notified by telephone and School Messenger if students will be sent home early. Please keep us informed of your current telephone number. If you cannot be reached by phone prior to an early dismissal, your child/children will be kept at school. Parents will then be responsible for picking up their child/children.
If you have any questions, please call the transportation department:712-366-3241.
