The district will make every effort to notify parents of an unexpected school delay or closure 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 notification will be communicated to parents and guardians by email, text, and/or phone call through our district messaging system. To ensure that you receive districtwide and schoolwide notifications, please keep your contact information (email address and/or phone number) current in Parent Portal.
Local News Media
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 and broadcasts.
This communication process applies to any unexpected school delay or closure at Melissa Schools.
