Dear Parents, Students and Staff,

I would like to inform each of you of the process and methods Glen Rose ISD will disseminate information regarding possible school closings.

School closings or late start determinations will occur by 6:00 a.m. before morning bus routes begin. Glen Rose ISD will utilize BlackBoard Connect and Parent Link to notify students, parents, and staff of possible closings or delays. A pre-recorded message will be sent to all phone numbers in the student and staff directory within 10 minutes. Please make sure the numbers that you listed on the student information page are current.

Information will also be posted on the Glen Rose ISD website The website will be continuously updated to keep parents and community members informed of school closing status. Announcements will also be posted on the district Twitter and Facebook pages.

To ensure everyone is informed, the following television and radio stations will be contacted for publication:

Television: Channel 4 (KDFW) / Channel 5 (KXAS) / Channel 8 (WFAA) / Channel 11 (KTVT)

Radio: 820 AM (WBAP) / 92.1 FM (KTFW)

The media will only be notified in the event there will be changes to the school schedule such as a cancellation, late start or early release. Decisions to alter the school schedule will be made based on the most accurate information at hand. As always, our top priority is the safety of our students.

Thanks for your support and cooperation!
