Cooler weather is on its way - again

Please be advised that the weather is expected to change over the next 24-48 hours, and please make sure that your child is dressed warmly. According to The Weather Channel, Thursday's forecast calls for a 70-percent chance of precipitation and a high of only 38.
Friday's conditions are projected to be even worse with an 80-percent chance of precipitation with a high of 30 and a low of 28.
Weatherford ISD Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Hanks said in the event schools are closed or the daily schedule is altered due to a severe weather condition, information will be sent to television and radio stations, and will be posted on the district’s website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Also, parents will be contacted through the district’s SchoolMessenger® notification system which is designed to call or text a massive number of people in a relatively short amount of time.
Also, in the event of potential inclement weather, the District will strive to make a decision by 6 a.m. so parents will have ample opportunities to make arrangements, if necessary, for their children."

Weatherford ISD will fall under Class 6A beginning in 2014

Dear Kangaroo Community,

Every two years, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) uses student enrollment figures to determine school districts' classifications (1A -6A), then realigns districts to balance the number of teams and to minimize travel. This morning the UIL announced the Conference Cutoff Numbers for 2014-2016, providing the range of enrollment for each of the six conferences. Weatherford ISD’s enrollment of 2,227 places us in the UIL’s 6A conference.

District launches new website

Weatherford ISD is proud to announce the launch of its new website this morning.

The new website is the culmination of feedback received by parents, staff, and community members through annual surveys about how the District’s website could better serve our parents and community. What emerged is a clean design, consistent and improved navigation, and quick access to our most frequently visited District-wide webpages.

The new website offers several features for parents including an option to “subscribe” to their child’s teacher’s page. When a teacher updates their page with news or homework assignments, parents will receive a text message in the evening summarizing these updates.

The new website is easy to read on mobile phones, tablets, or computers because it automatically adjusts according to the user’s device. Another new feature is the opportunity to export district/campus events to a mobile phone, Google Calendar, or Microsoft Outlook.

The Weatherford ISD website address remains www.weatherfordisd.com. To be sure you are reaching our new site, please clear your internet cache.

We greatly appreciate your patience as we continue to improve upon the website to make it a better experience for all who visit it.
