WEATHER AND EMERGENCY RELATED CHANGES TO THE SCHOOL SCHEDULE


Dallas School District will utilize our automated calling system, One Call Now and local television and radio stations to text, place phone calls, and make parents and families aware in case of a delay, cancellation, or early dismissal of schools.

When the decision is made to delay the opening of school, typically by two hours, bus stops and start times will be delayed by two hours.

When the decision is made to dismiss schools, the time is governed by weather and the situation. Often, early dismissals for weather and emergency situations are as follows:


Secondary - 12:00 P.M. dismissal

Primary/Intermediate-1:00 P.M. dismissal

A.M. Kindergarten -10:40 A.M. dismissal/No P.M. Kindergarten

However, the district may alter early dismissal times based on the weather or the emergency. When the decision is made to close schools for weather and emergencies, generally all school related activities are also cancelled.


"Snow days" or emergency days are made up in accordance with the school calendar.
