Bryan ISD Closed Through Friday, February 19, 2021

UPDATE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2021

With the continued strain on the power grid and water services, Bryan ISD has made the decision to close through Friday, February 19, 2021.  This includes the cancellation of both on-campus and at-home instruction, and all extracurricular activities.

Bryan ISD has invested heavily in technology over the last year to allow for at-home learning when it’s not possible to come into the school building.  However, keeping your family safe is priority, and dealing with power outages and burst pipes or water shortages has led to a situation where teaching and learning at-home is very difficult.

If you do have power through the end of the week, we continue to encourage students to log into Schoology and catch up on any assignments, continue to read books, practice math facts, complete previously assigned work, play games, work on puzzles or art projects. Older children can work with or read to younger children.  We do not want children to be without learning, or to fall behind during this extreme winter weather. Please continue to share how your children are learning by tagging Bryan ISD on social media, or sending ideas and pictures to info@bryanisd.org.  

If your power has been out for an extended period of time or you don’t have heat, Reed Arena has been opened to the public as a warming center.  Should you or your family need other assistance, you can also call 2-1-1.

Once again, please stay safe and warm.

UPDATE TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2021

As we’ve received new information regarding the extensiveness of rolling power outages expected to continue through tomorrow, Bryan ISD will be closed on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.  This includes the cancellation of both on-campus and at-home instruction, and all extracurricular activities.

Our goal is still to have at-home, asynchronous instruction only on Thursday and Friday. As a reminder, this means:

  • Students stay at home and do not come to the school building.
  • All students grades 5-12 should log into their Schoology account from home, and complete assignments.
  • Students PK-4 should complete assignments in their workbooks, or on Schoology, as directed by their teacher.

If you do have power tomorrow, we encourage students to log into Schoology and catch up on any assignments, continue to read books, practice math facts, complete previously assigned work, play games, work on puzzles or art projects. Older children can work with or read to younger children.  We do not want children to be without learning, or to fall behind during this extreme winter weather. Please continue to share how your children are learning by tagging Bryan ISD on social media, or sending ideas and pictures to info@bryanisd.org.  

If your power has been out for an extended period of time or you don’t have heat, Reed Arena has been opened to the public as a warming center.  Should you or your family need other assistance, you can also call 2-1-1.

Once again, please stay safe and warm.

UPDATE MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2021

We have continued to monitor the weather and due to the rolling power outages, the below freezing temperatures and concerns with pipes at a few of our campuses, we are making some changes to our learning schedule for this week.

Tuesday, February 16, 2021, Bryan ISD will be closed. This includes the cancellation of both on-campus and at-home instruction, and all extracurricular activities.  We made this decision due to the high number of rolling power outages expected to continue tomorrow that could make at-home learning difficult for our students and teachers.

Wednesday, February 17 through Friday, February 19, Bryan ISD will have at-home, asynchronous instruction only.  Here is what this means:

  • Students stay at home and do not come to the school building.
  • All students grades 5-12 should log into their Schoology account from home, and complete assignments.
  • Students PK-4 should complete assignments in their workbooks, or on Schoology, as directed by their teacher.

While the temperature is expected to remain below freezing through much of the week, the need for rolling power outages should lessen Wednesday through Friday. However, we need to drain the pipes at some of our campuses, and we will not be able to test them until the temperature rises above freezing.

We know that you may continue to lose power through the end of the week, or have other reasons related to the weather that prevent your child from logging on and completing assignments. All we ask is that you do the best you can.

Please use this time to continue learning with your children.  While you are home, we encourage your children to read books, practice math facts, complete previously assigned work, play games, puzzles or educational toys. Older children can work with or read to younger children.  We’d love for you to share how your children are learning during this big freeze.  If you post on social media, please tag Bryan ISD, or send ideas and pictures to info@bryanisd.org. Let’s get creative!

We also want to remind you that help is available during this difficult time. You can call 2-1-1 should you or your family need assistance.

Please stay safe and warm.

We have been closely monitoring the weather and due to the extremely cold temperatures and possible snow/ice, we are making some changes for the start of next week.

On Monday, February 15, 2021, Bryan ISD will be closed. This includes the cancellation of both on-campus and at-home instruction, and all extracurricular activities.  

On Tuesday, February 16, Bryan ISD will have at-home, asynchronous instruction only.  Here is what this means:

We’re watching the weather for Wednesday and Thursday, and as we get closer to the middle of the week will make a decision about returning to on-campus instruction.

It is unusual for the Brazos Valley to experience temperatures this cold. Hypothermia can be of concern if you are exposed to extreme cold. Click on this link for signs and symptoms. You can call 2-1-1- should you or your family need assistance during this time.
