Northwest ISD announced that all after-school activities Feb. 23 will either be canceled or rescheduled due to the winter weather.

The district announced in an email that the decision was made as “road conditions [are] expected to worsen this evening.” The decision affects all extracurricular activities, such as athletics and fine arts events.


A winter storm warning is in effect through Feb. 24 from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex up to the Red River, according to the National Weather Service, causing sleet and ice that will “result in hazardous driving conditions.”

District schools will still be dismissing students at their regular times, and AlphaBEST is continuing to offer its after-school service, according to the email. However, the required pickup time will be 5 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m.

“Please drive safe this afternoon, as roads are expected to become slick this evening, with ice possible,” the district wrote. “Northwest ISD will continue to monitor weather conditions and inform families of any scheduling changes that may affect school tomorrow.”
