The Bandera ISD Communications Office strives to develop positive relationships by providing timely information to staff, students, parents and the Bandera County community. The office shares information to the community through the use of the BISD website, eNews distributed through the website, community partnerships and the local news media. For more information on communications, contact Tracy Thayer at 830-796-3313 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bad Weather Emergency Information
The following radio and television stations will broadcast bulletins concerning school closings; KTSA 550AM, WOAI 1200AM, KABB Channel 29, KENS Channel 5, KSAT Channel 12, WOAI Channel 4. Because the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, Bandera ISD Administration continually monitors the progress of any potential weather situation. If severe weather conditions occur (heavy rain, icing of highways, etc.) parents should monitor the media outlets referenced above and the BISD Facebook site. If it becomes necessary to cancel school or postpone the start of school for any reason, these outlets will broadcast bulletins as a public service. In addition, it may become necessary to dismiss school early due to severe weather conditions that occur during the day. In the event of an unscheduled early dismissal, children should know exactly where they are to go if parents are not at home. Bandera ISD encourages parents to formulate an emergency plan with their chidlren to deal with the possibility of unscheduled early dismissals.
PLEASE NOTE: If there is no announcement, school is in session and on a normal schedule for the day.
