We look forward to welcoming students, faculty, and staff back to school tomorrow, February 3, 2023. We have had some power issues at Austin Elementary School. If your student attends Austin, please be sure to look for direct communication from the campus. We hope everyone stays warm! #safeTisd
Due to numerous power outages throughout the city, some affecting our campuses, Tyler ISD will be closed on Thursday, February 2. We look forward to welcoming our students and staff back on Friday, February 3. We hope everyone stays warm and safe during this time. #safeTisd
Out of an extraordinary and extreme abundance of caution for our students and staff, listening to local and national weather predictions for a Winter Storm, power irregularities, and limited but questionable rural bridge conditions, we regretfully make the call to close Tyler ISD schools for the day. We look forward to welcoming our students and staff back for a normal school day starting at the regular time on Thursday, February 2nd. Thank you again for you flexibility and patience. #safeTisd
All Tyler ISD games scheduled for tonight, Jan. 31, have been canceled. These games will be rescheduled. We will release more information once we know more. Stay warm and stay safe. #safeTisd @TylerISD_Ath

We will release school early today by 30 minutes to allow our buses plenty of time to safely transport students home and get our drivers back to the parking lot while it is still light outside and before the next round of precipitation hits our area. Mentoring Alliance after-school programs will still be held on campuses. However, they encourage parents to pick up their children as soon as possible. Please check with your coach or sponsor if you have any extracurricular after-school activities, as practices and games in Tyler will still occur. Thank you so much for your flexibility as we make the best decisions for all our students and staff. #safeTisd
Tyler ISD will have a normal school day as scheduled. As always, our buses will use extreme caution when transporting our students. Please know that we have a plan in place and that some buses may be rerouted to avoid any areas of slight concern. Please remember that for some of our students keeping schools open means that they will have a warm place to go today and a hot meal. We appreciate your patience! #safeTisd
Our transportation team members continue to travel the roadways at this time. Thank you for your patience as we conduct a thorough evaluation of our streets, bridges, and overpasses. #safeTisd
We will continue to monitor the weather conditions this evening and through the night. If a delay or closure is needed, you will be informed by 5:15 a.m. through Tyler ISD Facebook, TylerISD.org, the Tyler ISD app, and the parent notification system per our inclement weather procedures. Please know that we drive the roads as early as 4:00 a.m. to ensure the streets are safe. For some students, closing our facilities means they may not have access to a heated and safe environment or hot meals for the day. When deciding to delay or cancel classes, our District leadership team considers the best interests of all Tyler ISD students, families, and staff. #safeTisd

It is School Board Recognition Month, and we want to celebrate Dr. Patrica Nation! 🏛️ Thank you for the time you spend volunteering to ensure Successful Student Outcomes. 🎓 Here's why she does! 👏 “The love and support of children has always been my passion, education my chosen profession, and service my calling. School board service draws them all together in one package.”
Let's continue School Board Recognition Month by recognizing Wade Washmon! 🏛️ Thank you for the time you spend volunteering to ensure Successful Student Outcomes. 🎓 Here's why he does! 👏 "For me, it's about serving the students and community by striving to be a reasonable voice in a world where education is increasingly politicized and scrutinized. I love Tyler, TX, and the people who live here as much as anybody, it's home, and it's so important to me to keep our focus on where it needs to be, successful student outcomes. In my time on the board, I’ve realized just how delicate a functional and healthy school board and the District really are. And I'm proud to serve on a board where we're dedicated to handling our business quietly and respectfully, putting people over politics every day of the week."
SAVE THE DATE! 🗓️ Head Start and Pre-K enrollment opens February 1! Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity for your little ones to start their educational journey with us. 😊 Learn more about our early education programs at tylerisd.org/prek 🔗
Join in the comments for School Board Recognition Month by recognizing Andy Bergfeld! 🏛️ Thank you for the time you spend volunteering to ensure Successful Student Outcomes. 🎓 Here's why he does! 👏 "Public education, in Texas, has its beginnings in the 1840s and has been evolving since that time. It has always been important to the people of this state that all kids have access to a free K-12 public education. Through their elected school board members, it is up to each town to determine the quality of that education, which is why I ran for the Tyler ISD Board. For the City of Tyler to be at its best, Tyler ISD must be excellent in all areas. It is my job to make sure the community’s expectations are met and that all children are prepared to be productive citizens and enjoy what this great country has to offer."
For School Board Recognition Month, we want to recognize Lindsey Harrison! 🏛️ Thank you for the time you spend volunteering to ensure Successful Student Outcomes. 🎓 Here's why she does! 👏 "Being on the school board is so insightful! Having two children in the district and being a graduate myself, I am beyond honored to serve in a position where I can impact not only my children’s future but the future of all our amazing students collectively. Their future in our district and their path onward is why I serve!"
