Inclement Weather Policy

  • Inclement Weather Procedures


    The decision to close schools based on inclement weather is made by 6:30 a.m. when possible. School closing decisions are reported on the Denton ISD website, Twitter account and Facebook page; major local television and radio stations also broadcast school closings.

    Closings are also announced on the district’s main telephone line at 940-369-0000. Denton ISD uses an automated call-out system for weather alerts. Please be sure to have your current contact information on file with the school your child attends (if you have multiple children, make sure your contact information is at all the DISD campuses you have a child at).

    Denton ISD and media outlets only inform viewers and listeners of school districts that are either starting late or canceling school. If no information is given from the district or media outlets, schools will start at their regular times.
