Anytime the possibility of inclement weather is forecast, our district emergency management team actively monitors weather, temperatures, and road conditions as the situation develops. We work closely with local emergency management personnel including the National Weather Service, Texas Department of Transportation, and our city and county law enforcement to determine the impact of impending weather on school and school activities. When winter weather strikes, district administrators also drive roads throughout the district to assess travel conditions for the safety of buses and all drivers to and from our schools and buildings.
Once a decision is made regarding school and/or activities, we will begin notifying our community as quickly and as early as possible. The district will use several communication avenues to notify parents, students, and staff. The SchoolMessenger automated phone calling system will be utilized in the event of a delay or school closure. If you recently changed phone numbers and have not notified the district, please make certain your information is accurate by contacting your child's campus. In addition, we will post the information on the EMS ISD website, the district’s social networking sites, and notify local television and radio outlets.
Normal procedure in the district is not to close schools early once students are in attendance. This is for the safety and well being of all students, since many students may not have someone at home if they are released early. Weather and road conditions can vary greatly from area to area. As a result, parents are the final decision makers regarding your son/daughter's attendance. Please notify the school office if your son/daughter will not be in school or should be dismissed early due to weather conditions.
In the event of a decision to close or delay school, Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD will make the official announcement first on the district's social media sites (Facebook and Twitter), the district and campus websites, and then through local media outlets.
