Weather Notification
Weather Notification
Safety of our students and staff is a priority if bad weather is predicted or occurs during the school day. Several RISD departments (transportation, facilities, grounds) stand ready to assess the condition of the roads and school facilities should ice and/or snow make travel to or from RISD schools hazardous. Based on their assessment of the road conditions and consultation with surrounding districts, RISD's Superintendent will determine if schools in Richardson ISD will be delayed or closed for the safety of students and staff.

In the event of inclement weather that may require classes be delayed or cancelled, parents and employees will be notified by telephone message before 6:30 a.m.

In addition, patrons can check the RISD homepage at, the district Facebook page at or the district Twitter feed at The district also notifies local media outlets of closures or delays.

Parents, employees and students should assume a normal school day unless a telephone message is received or the RISD website or media outlets indicate closure or delay.

With the implementation of the Blackboard Connect mass notification system, campus phone trees for poor weather are no longer necessary, as all employees and parents will receive a call simultaneously with closure news.

This is another great reason for parents to ensure their child's campus has accurate contact information.
