Press Release From HISD Communications

JAN 15, 2024

Huntsville ISD Families, 

HISD has been monitoring the inclement weather forecasts for our immediate area.  A low of 19* is predicted tonight with patchy ice on the roads that will not thaw by morning.  Dangerous wind chill of 6* is expected when our students would be waiting for morning bus routes.  Due to these sub freezing temperatures and potential for icy/hazardous road conditions, we have decided to CLOSE school tomorrow, Tuesday, January 16, 2024.  All extracurricular activities are also canceled.

Roads are expected to clear tomorrow afternoon, so at this point we plan to return to normal operations on Wednesday.  We will continue to monitor the conditions and if a change is necessary we will communicate to families as soon as a decision can be made.  All updates will also be sent to parents using the mass notification system as well as posted on the district website ( and social media pages.

Students are encouraged to stay indoors due to extreme temperatures. It is unusual for the Huntsville/Walker County community to experience temperatures this cold. Hypothermia can be a great concern if you are exposed to extreme cold. Click on this link for signs and symptoms: You can call 2-1-1 should your family need assistance during this time.

Please stay safe and warm,
Huntsville ISD
