  • Snow and thermometer Aledo ISD's Inclement Weather Procedures

    Aledo ISD considers the safety of our students and staff as the district’s No. 1 priority and will always respond first to the immediate emergency. After ensuring the safety of our Bearcats, our next priority will be communication with parents and guardians.

    Severe Weather Procedures

    Aledo ISD officials and campuses regularly monitor storms in the area, the National Weather Service, and local TV and radio stations for any potential alerts or risks. Aledo ISD officials receive regular updates and alerts from the Tarrant County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the National Weather Service.

    In the event severe weather is approaching during the school day, the district will account for students and staff in secure locations and then communicate updates to parents. The district requests parents not come to school buildings in the middle of a storm to pick up their children. Please let school officials effectively respond during a weather emergency and follow Aledo ISD's communication outlets for updates and announcements (Facebook, Twitter, Mobile App, ParentLink emails).

    Inclement Weather Procedures

    Aledo ISD monitors the National Weather Service and local meteorologist forecasts before making decisions to close or delay school. Officials attempt to provide details about school closings to staff, students and parents before 5:30 a.m.

    Factors considered before making a weather-related decision about school include:

    • road conditions, temperatures
    • the presence of snow, ice and sleet
    • teen driver safety
    • sidewalk and parking lot conditions; and
    • the ability for staff who live outside the district to get to work
    • whether or not HVAC systems are operating correctly; and
    • whether or not neighboring school districts are having school.

    Notifications:

    Aledo ISD will send alerts and updates via mulitple communications tools. The district will post to Facebook, Twitter, Aledo ISD Mobile App, Parentlink emails and the district's website to keep parents, students and staff informed of weather-related alerts.
