HISD Schools Closed on Friday

Posted:

The Houston Independent School District, including Fort Bend and Galveston ISDs, say they will be closed on Friday due to the threat of wintry weather.

In addition, there will be no after school activities on Thursday.

Fort Bend ISD announced their decision to opt out of Friday classes on Thursday around 4:30 p.m.

HISD's announcement came late Thursday morning as forecasters predicted the Houston area would see snow and sleet heading into early Friday.

According to FOX 26 Meteorologist Mike Iscovitz, areas north of Highway 59 have the greatest chance of seeing one to three inches of snow. South of that will be a snow-sleet mix. Near the coast, Galveston will see cold rain.

HISD isn’t alone in its closure. Galveston ISD will also release students early on Thursday and will be closed on Friday. View a complete list using the links below.
