As we all know, weather on the Texas Gulf Coast can be anything but predictable! Be prepared.
The safety of our students and staff and any visitors to our schools and facilities is our highest priority. During severe weather situations, our schools and facilities operate using emergency protocols as part of the National Incident Management System in response to severe weather notifications by local emergency officials.
Fort Bend ISD Procedures for Emergency Closing of Schools and Offices - The superintendent may close schools and offices due to severe weather or emergencies (e.g., flooding, icy roads, power failures, etc.). Should severe weather or other conditions necessitate the closing of schools or a delayed start, FBISD will notify parents using its telephone and email notification system, School Messenger. FBISD will also notify all major Houston metro-area media by 6 a.m., prior to the scheduled start of school.
A notice will also be posted on the Fort Bend ISD homepage at www.fortbendisd.com, as well as sent out through the District's Twitter account.
A severe weather hotline is available to parents to learn about the latest information from the District regarding a severe weather occurrence. Please call (281) 634-INFO (4636) for information about schedule changes due to weather.
Also, please review the Emergency Arrival and Dismissal Matrix for information about schedule changes due to inclement weather. The matrix provides parents, students and staff with an overview of the impact on programs and services across the District should there be a delay, early dismissal or closing.
Emergencies - In an emergency, always dial 911. School-related emergencies or situations that require police assistance should also be reported to the FBISD Police Department by calling (281) 634-5500.
Do you have a missed call from (281) 634-8500? This is the phone number assigned to FBISD's parent notification system. Please make note of this number for future reference.
