Katy Texas News
Posted February 9, 2011
The district’s Emergency Management Team has been reviewing weather and road information from local authorities and there have been no reports of ice formation on any of the roadways in the Katy area, nor is there expected to be any ice formation on the roads prior to or during dismissal that would prevent the safe transportation of students. As such, all Katy ISD campuses will dismiss at their normal times, Wednesday, Feb. 9.
Because ice is expected to start forming on roads and bridges later this evening and tonight, all after-school extracurricular activities for Wednesday, Feb. 9 are cancelled.
District officials are continuing to monitor the developing weather situation for Thursday morning. At 3 a.m., officials with the Katy ISD Transportation and Police Departments will begin driving local roads to inspect bridges and overpasses for ice accumulation.
By 5:30 a.m., district officials will determine if road conditions warrant a delayed start. A notice of delayed start will be posted on the Katy ISD Web site and sent to all media by 6 a.m. Please note that if there is no delayed start posting on the website then all Katy ISD campuses are opening at their normal times.
