We’ve begun to thaw out from this week’s winter weather event as the temperatures are rising. But, with some lingering precipitation, a few area power outages and roads still hazardous in some areas, some local school districts have decided to remain closed tomorrow. We will continue to update this story as we receive official word from local districts.
Arlington ISD CLOSED Friday
Update for Friday, Feb. 3: Out of an abundance of caution, all Arlington ISD schools and offices will remain closed Feb. 3. We know that weather conditions are expected to improve throughout the day. Still, there is too much uncertainty in the morning. We do not want our students, parents and staff members driving or walking on roads that are expected to freeze again overnight, making travel treacherous in the morning.
We appreciate your patience over the last few days. Everyone knows how quickly the weather can change in Texas. Our goal is to keep everyone in the district safe, and we feel keeping schools closed Friday helps us achieve that. We can’t wait to see everyone on Monday, Feb. 6. Until then, stay safe and warm.
