Over the past couple of weeks, we have had to delay school and cancel a few times due to the weather. Today, we looked into how much time we have lost and how much time we are able to lose before we have to make up any time. At this time, we do NOT have to make up any of the time we have lost. This means that Friday, March 10, will still be a day off for everyone unless we end up with more closures/delays at a later date. Have a great weekend!
Just a reminder that there will be no school on Monday, February 6, for all students due to a staff professional development day.
We will have school today with our 2 hour delayed start plans in place. Buses will also run 2 hours late. Although wet, the roads are fine, and temperatures are expected to rise as we move through the day.
We currently have moisture on the ground in Vernon and it is expected to continue throughout the night with temperatures expected to hover just above the freezing line overnight. We have decided to be cautious and have a 2 hour delayed start tomorrow, Thursday, February 2. Buses will run 2 hours late as well.
Vernon Community: Vernon ISD will move to close all campuses today, February 1. The threat of precipitation has been enhanced overnight with now a greater than 50% chance of precipitation existing at several times during the day. Stay warm and safe!
Vernon Community: Vernon schools will opt for another 2-hour delay tomorrow, February 1. Buse will run 2 hours late. The rationale behind the decision is we see a current forecast for rain/sleet/snow falling at 10:00a.m. when the temperature will rest at 27 degrees. A 2-hour delay does not help at all in a situation like this but it will help in giving the team and I the time needed to see if things change one way or another. My hat’s off to this staff, who have dealt with quite a few adjustments this week yet are so committed to the mission to teach that they rise and show up even during adverse weather.
All major roads and bridges in and around Vernon have been driven this morning and despite the bitter cold outside, we will continue with our plans for a 2 -hour delayed start for all campuses at Vernon ISD. Buses will run 2 hours late. We will continue to monitor the weather throughout the day.
Vernon Community: We will continue to monitor the weather conditions closely. We are primarily concerned with a strong chance of precipitation in the early morning hours while the temperatures remain well below the freezing mark. For this reason, Vernon I.S.D. will move for another 2-hour delayed start on Tuesday, January 31. We feel confident that the delayed start will give us enough time to make the best decision moving forward.
The 1st Annual 4-person golf scramble, benefitting the Vernon ISD Education Foundation, will be held April 22, 2023. More information about the scramble and how to enter will be posted at a later date. Sponsorship opportunities will be available as well. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of Vernon ISD. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kori Eakin @ 940-553-1900 extension 2229.
Each year, every school campus in Texas is given a School Report Card. We want to make sure our parents and community are aware of these and where to find them. You can find the 2022 School Report Card for all of our VISD campuses here: https://www.vernonisd.org/documents/district-information/accountability-reports/district-and-campus-report-cards/311080
Vernon Community: In addition to me, district officials have been monitoring Monday night’s and Tuesday’s forecast since last week. Our concerns have grown due to the weather models that have constantly changed. In the best interest of both our students and staff, all Vernon schools will move to a 2-hour delayed start for tomorrow. The 2-hour delay gives district officials enough time to access the roads in the morning and review the most current weather forecasts. An update will be posted on the district’s website, the district’s APP and Facebook to determine further decisions beyond the 2-hour delay.
Please see the attached message from our Superintendent regarding a social media post on Friday mistakenly referring to one of our local campuses. Please know the post has been investigated and determined not to affect any Vernon ISD campuses, but we will be monitoring the situation closely.

Meet my new friend Bentley. During my campus tours, I ran into this little fella and I was caught off guard when he said, "Hello Dr. Ward". These Vernon ISD kids are simply the best and deserve the absolute best that we can give them.
Just a reminder that the last day of school before our break will be Friday, December 16. Enjoy the holidays and we look forward to seeing all of our students again on January 4!
