Updates

  • 01/15/24 4:00 p.m. - Killeen ISD has been closely monitoring the weather and roads in Central Texas. KISD has made the decision to delay the start of all schools by two hours on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, out of an abundance of caution. We wanted to communicate tomorrow’s delayed start as soon as possible to allow your family to plan accordingly. All campuses will open two hours later than normal. KISD will not serve breakfast tomorrow morning.

    School buses will pick up students two hours later to correlate with the delay. You can follow your student’s bus using the Edulog Lite mobile application. 

    Please be aware that further announcements regarding extended closures could be announced tomorrow morning. Updates will be communicated through our automated messaging system, the district website, social media platforms, and local news networks.


    Employee pay will not be negatively impacted due to the unplanned weather delay.

    The KISD Board workshop scheduled for 9:00 a.m. will go on as planned. However, the KISD Tutoring Center will be closed on Tuesday evening and we will reschedule the Instructional Materials Showcase. As a reminder, all basketball and soccer games originally scheduled for Tuesday evening have been moved to Wednesday.

    Stay warm and safe. 


    01/15/24 10:00 a.m. - Killeen ISD Varsity and JV basketball games originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 16, 2024, have been rescheduled to Wednesday, January 17, 2024. This decision was made at the 12-6A and 22-5A District Executive Committee (DEC) level this morning due to the below-freezing temperatures in our area. 

    Killeen ISD continues to monitor the weather and will communicate any other delays as they become available.


    01/12/24 4:09 p.m. - Killeen ISD is closely monitoring the weather moving into our area this weekend. As a reminder, Monday, January 15, 2024, is a school holiday, and all campuses are closed. Additionally, all extracurricular activities including practices are cancelled for Monday.

    At this time, school will start at the normal time on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

    High school soccer games originally scheduled for Tuesday evening will be moved to Wednesday evening due to the freezing temperatures. Basketball games are currently planned to be played as scheduled Tuesday evening.

    Our goal is to communicate any potential weather-related decision to you by Monday evening to allow you to plan accordingly.

    All updates will be communicated through our automated messaging system, the district website, the Killeen ISD mobile app, social media platforms, and local news networks.
