Northwest ISD will have a snow day on Tuesday, February 16 and Wednesday, February 17. This means no classes for In-Person or Remote Learners.

With temperatures in the single digits and the wind chill warnings in effect, we also hope everyone is taking the necessary precautions to stay safe if/when getting outside!

To complicate things, many of our families are experiencing prolonged power outages in addition to the scheduled rolling blackouts. As we plan for the rest of the week, we are also considering the impact this could have on our students.

FAQs about Bad Weather Days

Will NISD need to make up the snow days later in the year?
Because we have planned for a day like this in our instructional calendar, the district has enough instructional minutes to have one snow day without needing a make up day later in the year. In light of the ongoing power issues, the district is working with legislators to seek a waiver from the Texas Education Agency, if needed for additional days. 

What about Thursday and Friday?
No decisions have been made yet for Thursday or Friday, but we will communicate decisions as soon as possible on social media, via email, and via text messages to families who have opted in to receive texts from the district. To opt in to text messages from NISD, text Y to 67587.
