DeSoto ISD is actively monitoring the report of potential winter weather this week on Thursday, Feb. 3 and Friday, Feb. 4 and we want to ensure that our families are aware of our Inclement Weather Procedures.

If a decision is made to either delay or cancel school, DeSoto ISD will make every effort to inform our community by 5:30 a.m. each day. All decisions will be made with the safety of our students and staff in mind.

Families will be notified in the following order and manner:

1) School Messenger: An email will go out through School Messenger to each family and staff member. The email will be sent from DeSoto ISD Information <[email protected]>. If you have opted into our school messenger text alerts, you should also receive a text message.

2) District Website: A posting will be made on our district website:

3) District Social Media Accounts: A posting will be made on our three official DeSoto ISD social media channels: 

  • Facebook:@DeSotoISD
  • Twitter: @desotoisdengage
  • Instagram: @desotoisdeagles

4) Local News Media Outlets: The major news and radio networks will be contacted per their inclement weather reporting procedures. As a note, DeSoto ISD does not control whether external news stations choose to publish our information.

PLEASE NOTE: If the district does not make an announcement, then district operations will proceed as normal. 

For inclement weather and general emergencies, it is important that the district has current contact information on file for primary and emergency contacts. In addition, the district has noticed that some parents and/or guardians have blocked text, email, and/or phone communication in the system. These settings prevent the district from contacting parents and/or guardians through our School Messenger system. 

Please visit the Parent Portal to update your contact information on file.

In the event you need additional information and/or assistance, please contact DeSoto ISD Communications at [email protected].

Dr. Larry D. Lewis

Interim Superintendent of Schools
