Imminent Weather

Weather Closures

CIFS generally follows Houston Independent School District (HISD), Spring Independent School District (SISD) and Klein Independent School District (KISD) when it comes to system-wide weather related closures and delays. This does not include individual school closures or non-weather related closures. Local television stations and their accompanying websites list HISD inclement weather closures. In all cases, students should use good judgment regarding their individual situations as they relate to poor weather and travel conditions. Students should never jeopardize their life, health, or safety.

You should also check the CIFS website for updates.
