Weather changes all the time in Texas, it could be sunny and wonderful outside one minute, and cold and icy the next. That is why we want to make sure both you and your family know what to expect should we be faced with inclement weather, especially during the winter months.
Our school website homepages have been updated with a “Delays and Closings” button where parents can find the latest information regarding campus-specific weather updates. To navigate to this page, visit your school’s web-page, scroll down, and click on the white button with the blue snowflake that says “Delays and Closings”. This web-page contains all of the information you need about any weather-related updates, delays or closings.
At Uplift, we make the decision to close or delay school openings in the case of inclement weather no later than 6:00 a.m. This decision is recommended by Uplift’s Regional Operations Directors and Chief Operating Officer who together review weather and road conditions. Given that Uplift schools are located in six cities across the D/FW metroplex, there is a chance that some schools will have different operating hours or closures than others in the network.
In addition to the “Delays and Closings” button on our school web-pages, parents can also learn of school delays and closings through the following:
- Local news outlets by 6:00 a.m. (NBC 5 and Telemundo)
- Text, email and phone call from campus communication systems. Make sure to update your contact information with your school so you receive these alerts!
- The Uplift App
- Your Campus’ Facebook account, and the Uplift Education Facebook and Twitter pages.
