Fort Worth ISD Cancels Classes Thursday and Friday

(Wednesday, February 17, 2021) -- As our community continues to deal with a historic weather event, the Fort Worth ISD will close schools again on Thursday, February 18, and Friday, February 19.

“The safety of our students and our employees remains our number-one concern right now,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. “We are suspending both virtual and in-person instruction so everyone can focus on taking care of their families during this crisis.”

Exempt (salaried) employees are being asked to engage in work, but to keep their supervisors informed of their individual situations that may mitigate their ability to connect from home.

Non-exempt (hourly) employees will not report to work but the District will seek to compensate them for these hours through a Board resolution.

The District is using their communication platforms to share news about emergency resources for the community at large. We are updating this information as we receive it.
