Cancellations, Delays and Early Releases – How Decisions Are Made
When inclement weather threatens normal school operations, the following steps are taken:
- Key district leaders evaluate the roadways and travel conditions across the district.
- The Superintendent consults with the district’s Director of Transportation and other top district leaders, local emergency management and law enforcement officials and consults with TxDOT for information about road conditions.
- After taking into account all the information received from both 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, delay school, or dismiss school early, the district will notify parents using the SchoolMessenger communication system, the district’s website, social media, and via the local media.
We encourage parents and staff to monitor local media, the district’s website, and email before heading to school or sending children to the bus stop. If there is no announcement from San Benito CISD, then classes will be held on a normal schedule.
