Closings and Emergency Notifications

Should inclement weather or other conditions necessitate the closing of schools or a delayed start, Katy ISD will notify all major Houston metro-area media by 6 a.m., prior to the scheduled start of school, or as soon as possible if classes have already started. A notice also will be posted on the Katy ISD Web site at

Parents can also receive school closings via e-mail and text alerts via a third-party site not administered by Katy ISD:

  1. On the left side of the page enter the name of the school for which you would like to receive alerts then click on “Find Your School.”
  2. Once found, select your school to continue. You will have the option of adding additional schools.
  3. Enter your e-mail address and cell phone number if you would like to receive alerts via text message.
  4. Click on “Subscribe Now” to complete the registration process.


Parents and staff can also call the Katy ISD School Closure Hotline at 281-237-0175 for updated information.
