Inclement Weather Protocol

  • When there is a concern of inclement weather in our area, Belton ISD administrators work through a thoughtful process, consider many factors and partner with emergency management officials whenever we must consider delaying or canceling school.

    Student and staff safety always serves as our main consideration, and we always strive to err on the side of caution. Each weather incident is unique and requires specific considerations. 

    A delay in the start of school or canceling the school day completely can have a significant impact on families.  We also want to ensure that we make 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 ensure our students are at school.  This is the balance we constantly weigh when making school delay and school closure decisions.
