Protocols and Communication for Inclement Weather

Any time there is a concern for an inclement weather event, we use the following protocol to help drive the decision-making process to either delay the start of school or cancel school. The concern for student and staff safety always serves as the main driver when these decisions are made, and we always strive to err on the side of caution. Each weather incident is unique, and will demand unique considerations.

We know that when we delay the start of school or cancel the school day completely, it has a significant impact on families. We also want to ensure that we are making decisions that minimize any negative impact on student learning. In other words, when there is no safety concern in getting to school, we want to make sure that our students are at school. This is the balance we constantly weigh when making school delay or school closure decisions.

How is the public notified?

We post the announcement on the district website, www.grangerisd.net, and social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) and send texts, emails and automated phone calls to parents/guardians of registered GISD students and staff. (That’s one reason we always need up-to-date contact information.) In addition, we notify local media so they can broadcast the updates. The district does not send out emails or other forms of communication if there are no changes to the regular school day.


With the recent passage of David’s Law (SB 179) by the Texas Senate in 2017, schools must install a way for students to anonymously report an incident of bullying (including cyberbullying).  Granger ISD has chosen to integrate HIBster (harrasment, intimidation & bullying) software to report these incidents if they are happening.  Please click on the HIBster icon below to start an incident report or to find out what could constitute a potential bullying or cyberbullying incident.

Granger ISD takes all offenses very seriously.

In good faith we are to believe that all reported matters are the absolute truth and answered to the best of your knowledge.
