Given the likelihood of the approaching winter storm, HPISD is expecting to announce its plans later today regarding school for the rest of the week. District staff will evaluate updated information from the National Weather Service before reaching a final decision.


For now, staff and students are encouraged to make plans as if classes will not be held Thursday and Friday. Driving conditions are expected to deteriorate rapidly overnight, making travel conditions hazardous.


Thank you.

The decision on whether schools will be closed will be announced through the following outlets:


  • HPISD text message alert system (Need to sign up? Click here)
  • HPISD email notification to parents and staff
  • Announcement on
  • Posts on the district’s Facebook page and Twitter feed
  • A recorded message on the HPISD main switchboard (214-780-3000). Please remember to call this main number, not the campuses.
