Emergency / Inclement Weather

During inclement weather, hazardous road conditions are the primary concern in determining whether to dismiss school. If conditions seem unfavorable, roads will be checked in various areas of the school district prior to 6:00 a.m. Any change to our normal operating schedule will be posted to the district web site and the following media sites:

KETK-NBC, Channel 56, Jacksonville
KLTV-ABC, Channel 7, Tyler
KSLA-CBS, Channel 12, Shreveport
KYTX-CBS, Channel 19, Tyler
KKTX, FM 96.1, 96X Classic Rock, Kilgore
KOOI, FM 106.5, Jack FM, Jacksonville
KYKX, FM 105.7, East Texas Country, Longview
KAPW, FM 99.3, Mega, White Oak
Information will also be posted on Twitter and Facebook, as well as our own cable channel 23.

The official word will be given as to whether or not school will be open.

It is wise to anticipate that school will be held until notification otherwise is received. Please do not call the police station, school principals, or school superintendent. Instead, tune your radio or television to one of the stations listed above and await the official announcement.

Should a winter storm move in during the school day, classes may be dismissed early for the safety of the students. Notification also will be made to the radio/television stations as soon as the decision is reached.

Please be reminded that should inclement weather and hazardous road conditions cause the dismissal of school, February 18th & April 22nd have been designated as makeup days for the 2019-2019 school year.
