Severe Weather Information

When the potential for severe weather is in the forecast, Mesquite ISD has practices and procedures to keep students and staff safe.

Mesquite ISD has an emergency operations plan in place to address a multitude of situations. Students and staff regularly practice emergency drills to ensure they know what to do if a situation arises.

Be assured that Administration monitors changing weather conditions and works closely with the City of Mesquite’s Emergency Management Department. All decisions will be made with the advice of emergency management personnel and with the safety interests of students and staff in mind.

Mesquite ISD has several ways to keep families informed of the latest information:
Mesquite ISD's emergency alert system will be used to deliver emergency notifications to families as quickly as possible. With this system, MISD can send thousands of alerts by phone, email and text in a matter of minutes.
Updates will be posted on the home page of the district website.
Updates will be broadcast on KEOM radio (88.5 FM).
Mesquite ISD will also post notifications and updates on our district Facebook page and Twitter feed. Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to receive these updates. These social media links are available on the Mesquite ISD website homepage.
Keep in mind that in the event of a power outage or damage to a district facility, one or more of these communication methods may be impacted, and phones may be down; however, keeping families informed is a top priority, and every effort will be made to ensure information is released as quickly and effectively as possible.
