Weather conditions may occur which make it necessary for the schools in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD to be closed for the safety of students and staff. GCISD closely monitors weather and road conditions when inclement weather is forecast. In the event of bad weather, we must consider the safety of all 13,400 students when making decisions about school closures. GCISD administrators work closely with local police, fire and emergency management experts and will determine school delays or cancellations based on the safety of all students district-wide.
GCISD uses multiple methods to notify parents of school delays and school closures. Notices are sent directly to parents and employees by phone, email and text via the district's SchoolMessenger automated notification system. In addition, information is posted on the district and school websites, sent via FastNews, and posted on the district's Facebook and Twitter pages. Local TV and radio stations also are notified of weather-related schedule changes.
No announcements will be made when schools are to remain open. If schools are to be closed for an entire day, that announcement will be made by 6:30 a.m. that day. Early release of classes already in session may be made if it appears that weather conditions are becoming worse and driving would be hazardous.
Please listen to the stations listed below or check the district website for information concerning school closings or early release due to weather.
In a Severe Weather Event during school hours and activities, GCISD emergency management personnel may implement a Shelter protocol.
A reminder for parents: When emergency protocols are activated, parents should not come to the school. Doors may be locked and staff will be focused on the safety and accountability of all students. GCISD will provide parents with instructions on when and where to pick up students. Review our Student-Parent Reunification Method handout for more details.
