Central Texas school districts have started to announce school closures this week as a winter storm is expected to arrive early Thursday morning. Icy conditions will make travel on Thursday "difficult to near impossible," the National Weather Service has warned, and people have been urged to stay home if they can.

School district closures

Districts that haven't announced Friday closures say they are going to monitor conditions before making a decision. Do you not see your school district on the list? We may be adding it now, or the district has yet to announce its decision. Check your school district's website for the latest information.
