Winter Storm Updated From Leander Independent School District



Winter Storm Updated From Leander Independent School District


We know this is a stressful time for our community, especially our families and staff who experienced extended outages of power and water. We understand basic needs must be met before any learning can take place.

In addition to the real trauma many of our students, families, teachers, and staff face during this weather crisis, we have at least 17 schools with damage, 5 schools with significant damage, and 13 schools without running water due to a city outage.

We will keep all schools closed on Monday, Feb. 22, and Tuesday, Feb. 23. We will not have in-person or virtual learning during those two days. We will provide food service to students in need starting on Monday.

While we do have some buildings available:

  • our staff and families need time to recover;
  • we need to be equitable; and
  • our families interconnect between schools (ex. a school district employee may not be available for work because their child attends a closed school).
