In the event of inclement weather, the following procedures will be followed.
A decision will be made by 6:00 A.M. to delay or to close schools. A notice will immediately be posted on the Burleson ISD website www.burlesonisd.net. Announcements will also be posted on the district Facebook and Twitter pages.
The district will send an automated phone call to all parents. Please ensure that the school has your correct phone numbers in Skyward Family Access .
In addition, the decision will be sent to the news media, including major regional television stations. Burleson ISD cannot guarantee that the media will report the decision. Thus, it is wise to check multiple media sources as well as refer to the Burleson ISD website.
In the event the school opening is delayed, the notice will be given as an amount of time, i.e. “School will be delayed 2 hours.” This sample message indicates that all schedules, including buses, will be operating two hours later than the normal operating time.
Our primary concern is for the safety of our students and staff. If your child is tardy due to hazardous roads, please contact your child’s principal and an excused tardy/absence will be issued.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) requires school districts to build two “make-up days” for school closures into the adopted school calendar. In the event that the district deems it necessary to close school on a scheduled instructional day, the make-up days are to be used to ensure that the minimum days of instruction are provided.
