School Delays & Closures – Bad Weather

In the event that there is inclement weather in the area that leads to potentially hazardous road conditions, a delayed opening or full day closure may be necessary at Melissa Schools.

The district will make every effort to notify parents as early as possible, with careful consideration of the safety of students, parents/guardians, staff, and notably, our bus drivers.

Note: The district will not send out a notification if schools are open and operating as usual.

A delay or closure notification will first be posted on the home page at and shared on the district’s official Twitter account (@MelissaISD) and official Facebook page (Melissa ISD).

A notification will then be communicated to parents by phone and email through our district messaging system. To ensure that you receive district notifications, please keep your contact information current in Parent Portal.

Additionally, the district will communicate delay and closure information to local television networks such as WFAA8/ABC, CBS11 DFW, NBC5, and FOX4 for their website listings.

This communication process applies to any unexpected school delay or closure at Melissa Schools.
