Keller ISD announced the district is closing all schools and facilities Feb. 3-4 due to the forecasted winter storm.

The district wrote in a Feb. 2 online announcement that the closure comes because of the forecasted winter weather and its “projected impact on area road conditions.” In addition to closing Feb. 3-4, all extracurricular activities are canceled the evening of Feb. 2, which includes all fine arts and athletic events.

“District administrators have closely monitored weather forecasts, and with below freezing temperatures and anticipated precipitation, the decision was made to close schools for the safety of all KISD families and employees,” the announcement states.

The announcement comes as the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for much of North Texas beginning as early as 3 p.m. Feb. 2 for some parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Rain is expected to transition to freezing rain, sleet and snow in large accumulations.

KISD will not have to make up the two bad weather days, as its instructional calendar has additional daily minutes already added to account for the closures, according to the announcement.


Classes will not be held virtually on Feb. 3-4, the announcement states. All district schools and buildings will reopen Feb. 7.
