LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock ISD and Frenship ISD both announced on Tuesday that classes for Wednesday, October 28 would be delayed due to inclement weather.
According to statements, buses for both districts will run on a 2-hour delay. Frenship buses will run on pavement only.
Read the statement by Superintendent Kathy Rollo below:
Lubbock ISD classes are delayed for Wednesday, October 28 due to the continuing icy and freezing conditions affecting roadways tomorrow morning. Students are to report to class by 10 a.m. and buses will run on a two-hour delay. Staff should report to their schools using extreme caution, but in ample time to prepare for students. The National Weather Service has indicated a high possibility for another round of freezing rain and/or snow in the city tonight and into Wednesday morning. If the decision is made to cancel face-to-face and virtual instruction, it will be communicated by phone call, email, and text; updates on our social media accounts, website, and Lubbock ISD-TV; and through local media outlets by 6 a.m. In the event of a cancellation, students will have a weather day while teachers participate in a remote collaborative planning day.
Your safety is important to us, so please allow extra time and drive carefully as you travel to school Wednesday morning, avoiding Loop 289, Interstate 27 and the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
