BGISD Winter Weather Communication

During the winter months, school officials keep a close watch on the weather. If the decision is made to delay or close school, our district will make every effort to notify parents, guardians, employees and the community as soon as possible. With few exceptions, the decision to delay or close school is made by 5:45 a.m., before buses begin morning routes.

As soon as a decision is made, One Call Now will send a text to parents and employees. Information will also be posted on the district website, Twitter (@BGISD) and Facebook accounts . 

In rare instances school may be dismissed during the school day to avoid afternoon weather conditions. If this occurs, a One Call Now Emergency Message will be sent in an effort to contact parents as soon as possible. The Emergency Message will call all phone numbers, send messages to all email addresses, and text messages will be sent to text subscribers.

School days missed due to inclement weather will be made up. The 2019-20 calendar lists February 17, March 13, and days following May 21st as possible make-up days. If necessary, others may be added to the end of the school year. Please consider the possibility of make-up days as you make vacation and/or graduation plans.

One Call Now is an automated parent notification service that allows schools to contact thousands of parents within minutes. One Call Now utilizes parent and guardian contact information provided by Infinite Campus to send phone calls, emails, and text messages from the schools and the district office. No subscription is necessary if parent/guardian contact information has been provided to the school district. Please notify your child's school if your household email or phone number has changed.
