Paris ISD has a plan in place in case the district needs to close any day the week of Feb. 15. The district sent home the letter below with students:
“Due to the threat of inclement weather, PISD is planning ahead to help students.
Listen to local radio stations, check our website and Facebook page to know if school is cancelled or if there is a delayed start. We will also use School Messenger to relay this information.
Should we be required to cancel school due to snow and ice, we will require students to access remote instruction provided by the district. If your child doesn’t have a learning device (computer, chromebook, ipad, etc.), you need to contact his or her campus to make arrangements to get one.
If you don’t have access to internet service at your home, we have a limited number of hotspots that you can check out from Paris High School. Currently, the biggest threat of winter weather is Monday, Feb. 15 and Tuesday, Feb. 16. If the forecast remains the same, you will need to make arrangements to pick up a device and/or a hotspot on Friday, Feb. 12, if needed. PISD will not charge the typical 25 dollar fee for Chromebooks in the event of a weather cancellation.
You will need to return your Chromebook and/or hotspot with your child when they return to school when normal instruction resumes. Teachers will be available to help students with schoolwork from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-3:30 p.m.
