Emergency School-Closing Information

  • Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and well-being of our students and families, Silsbee ISD has complied with a Disaster Declaration implemented by Hardin County Judge Wayne McDaniel that has been effective since March 17, 2020. In order for Silsbee ISD to comply with the declaration and prevent group gatherings of 10 or less, Silsbee ISD traditional campus-based instruction will be suspended. Silsbee ISD has followed further orders from the State of Texas following compliance from Gov. Greg Abbott's order of school closure until May 4, 2020. Please understand the suspension of traditional campus-based instruction could be extended based on any further declarations. 

    Silsbee ISD is offering a Flexible Education Program (FEP) in order to provide instructional continuity throughout the Disaster Declaration time period. With this FEP, Silsbee ISD will also be offering Curbside To-Go Meals during this closure.




    General Closure Information

    When such conditions exist, the Superintendent will make the official decision concerning the closing or delayed opening of the district’s facilities.

    When it is necessary for a school closure, to open late, or release students early, Silsbee ISD Communications Department will send an automated message by phone, post the notice on our website with a pop-up notice, and utilize social media. In addition, the message will be broadcast over major radio and TV stations in our local area.
