Inclement Weather Procedures

During inclement weather, Kilgore ISD officials are monitoring local forecasts, weather, wind temperatures, and road conditions.  Safe driving conditions for our school buses, students, and staff members are our primary concern when making decisions related to inclement weather. 

Before the school day: The decision to cancel or delay a school day will be made by the district administration as early as possible and communicated by the district and local news outlets (details below). 

Every attempt will be made to make decisions involving postponement and/or cancelling of the school day either by 10:00 PM the evening before or by 6:00 AM the morning of the affected day.

During the school day: If a significant weather event occurs while school is in session, campus administrators are the assigned decision-makers for appropriate action as needed to ensure the safety of students and staff. Campus administrators and district administrators work together to make the best-informed decisions for their school.

Communication: During bad weather situations, Kilgore ISD will use the following communication channels if there are any changes to the district schedule:

  • Kilgore ISD School Messenger system (phone and email) - your information must be updated in Skyward to receive the alerts. (To not disturb families too early or too late, please note that an automated phone call may not be used in all instances.)
  • Kilgore ISD's Facebook page
  • Local news outlets
