Inclement Weather Procedures
The safety and security of the Argyle ISD students and staff is the district’s No. 1 priority and we will always respond first to the immediate emergency. After ensuring the safety of our Eagles, our next priority will be communicating with parents and guardians.
Inclement Weather Procedures
Argyle ISD monitors the National Weather Service and local meteorologist forecasts before making decisions to close or delay school. Officials attempt to provide details about school closings to staff, students and parents by no later than 6 a.m.
Factors considered before making a weather-related decision about school include:
- road conditions, temperatures
- the presence of snow, ice and sleet
- teen driver safety
- sidewalk and parking lot conditions; and
- the ability for staff who live outside the district to get to work
- whether or not HVAC systems are operating correctly; and
- whether or not neighboring school districts are having school.
Severe Weather Procedures During School
Argyle ISD officials and campuses regularly monitor storms in the area, the National Weather Service, and local TV and radio stations for any potential alerts or risks. Argyle ISD officials receive regular updates and alerts from the Denton County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the National Weather Service.
In the event severe weather is approaching during the school day, the district will account for students and staff in secure locations and then communicate updates to parents. The district requests parents to not come to school buildings in the middle of a storm to pick up their children. Please let school officials effectively respond during a weather emergency and follow Argyle ISD's communication outlets for updates and announcements (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and School Messenger email notification).
Argyle ISD will send alerts and updates via multiple communications tools. The district will post to the AISD Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Parent email & text notifications will be sent by the district's mass notification system. Notifications will also be posted to the district website to help keep parents, students and staff informed of all weather-related alerts
Social Media Reminder: False reports of school closings, accidents or injuries by students will not be tolerated, nor will inappropriate language or references that violate the Student Code of Conduct.
Radio & Television Announcements: Official announcements during inclement weather will also be announced on DFW radio and television stations, including WBAP News Talk 820 AM, KRLD 1080-AM and on NBC Ch. 5, Fox 4, KTVT Ch. 11 and WFAA Ch. 8.
In Argyle ISD, we are committed to keeping the lines of consistent communication open with our students, staff, parents and community. This commitment includes social media messaging.
