Severe Weather Alerts
- If inclement winter weather, a severe storm or other weather-related emergency is forecast and has hit the area, the Superintendent will determine if school will be open for the day or if classes will be delayed by 6 a.m., at the latest, on the day of the event.
- GISD’s existing communications method — an automated electronic notification system - will broadcast a closing status message via text, automated phone call and email. All information will also be posted on the Homepage of the GISD website at www.gladewaterisd.com and to GISD’s social media pages.
- GISD also will notify relevant television/radio stations. These stations will list or announce the closings at their own discretion.
- Employees will be notified whether or not they are to report for work.
