LISD's Winter Weather Procedures

Connect with LISD today to stay informed of weather alerts.

In the event of bad weather, Lewisville ISD considers the safety of our 50,000 students and more than 6,000 employees in our 127-square-mile district when making decisions about the school day. Administrators closely monitor weather predictions, consult with neighboring districts, and stay in contact with our transportation managers in order to make the best decision possible with the information available. 

The decision to cancel a school day will be made by the district administration by 5:00 a.m. and communicated by the district via phone, social media, and district websites. Local TV stations will also be notified if a decision is made to cancel school. 

It is possible for weather and road conditions to vary greatly across the 13 municipalities served by LISD. For that reason, parents are the ultimate decision-makers on whether or not their students will attend school, and should notify the school as they would for any absence if the parent chooses to keep their student home.  

If school is canceled or delayed due to a weather-related event, parents and staff members will be notified the following ways:

Please note that the district does not send out emails or other forms of communication if there are no changes to the regular school day or after school activities. 

The safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Thank you in advance for your patience in the event of severe weather.
