DSISD Weather Update: Classes Cancelled Thursday; After-School Activities To Resume

February 1, 2023

Given that temperatures across the Hill Country and Austin metro area are not expected to rise above freezing until later tomorrow morning, we have made the decision to cancel school for Thursday, February 2. We will, however, resume after-school activities and meetings Thursday afternoon in anticipation of the rising temperatures.

We know the challenges that school cancellations can create for our families and we appreciate your understanding. We explored the option of a delayed start, but given that our district covers 198 square miles, much of which is rural and will take longer to thaw, we did not feel like it was a safe option for our staff and families. If your child has an after-school practice or activity, you can expect to hear from those individual program coordinators with details.  

We expect to resume regular school operations on Friday, February 3.
