Bad Weather and School Closing Information

by Coy Holcombe.  

Today’s weather reminds me that it is time to update everyone on our school closing information. First, how do we determine if we are going to delay or cancel classes? If there is a chance that roads may be icy or slick, Henry Carter, our transportation director, and myself will be out early driving the major roads in our district. This is the only way to determine the actual condition of the roads. Based on what we find, we make a decision regarding starting school on time, delaying the start of school, or canceling school altogether. We always keep the safety of the students as the prime factor in our decision.

Parents/guardians and community members may find out information about the status of EISD during bad weather by tuning into KCKL (95.9 FM), WBAP (820 AM), NBC 5 (KXAS Dallas), or WFAA-TV Channel 8 (Dallas). We will also post information as soon as possible on our website and marquee. If you have any questions regarding bad weather delays or closure, please email me at
