Stay Weather Aware

FWCD will not convene when inclement weather endangers the health or safety of students. Generally, the School exercises one of two options: close for the day or delay opening until 10 a.m. A late opening allows for further weather monitoring and helps drivers avoid early traffic hazards. In the absence of an announcement, the School will open as usual.

FWCD utilizes Blackbaud’s Connect 5, an emergency communication system. This technology enables the School to send voicemail, email and/or text messages to the community about emergency situations or other critical events. At the start of the school year, parents/guardians were notified as to how to update their emergency contact numbers.

In addition, closing or delayed opening announcements are given to WFAA Channel 8, posted on the FWCD website (, and the FWCD Facebook page. Information about the School closing from any source other than those above is unauthorized.
