Central Texas school delays, closures amid severe winter weather


AUSTIN (KXAN) — With Winter Storm Warnings issued in Central Texas, some school districts are changing their schedules this week.

The warnings went into effect overnight Sunday into Monday morning. After a strong cold front blew through Central Texas Sunday afternoon, enough cold air could be in place to give way to some freezing rain and icing potential for parts of the area.

Hays Consolidated Independent School District is dismissing school early Monday and plans to close schools Tuesday and Wednesday.

The district notified families of the changes in an email Monday. Hays CISD will make the following schedule changes:

Monday, Jan. 30: Early dismissal.

High schools will dismiss at 1 p.m., middle schools will dismiss at 2 p.m. and elementary schools will dismiss at their normal time at 2 p.m.

Transportation will run its bus schedules and provide service to bus riders at the early dismissal times.  

All afterschool activities are canceled for Monday.

Tuesday, Jan. 31: All Hays CISD schools and offices are closed. All afterschool activities are canceled.

Wednesday, Feb. 1: All Hays CISD schools and offices are closed. Afterschool activities may resume, and both students and families are advised to check with their activity sponsor or coach.

Thursday, Feb. 2: Return to normal schedule.

Manor and Hutto ISDs said they were monitoring weather conditions and will alert families if there are changes in the upcoming school days.

Marble Falls ISD said on Twitter that school closures are likely, and parents and guardians should have arrangements ready for that possibility. Families should monitor Marble Falls ISD social media and emails for up-to-date information.
