Emergency Communications

In times of a weather or other type of emergency impacting district operations, including delayed starts and school closures, the district will contact parents and staff via multiple sources. Local media will also be contacted.

On mornings when possible hazardous conditions exist, school officials will check the roads and make a decision by 5:30 a.m. Earlier notices will be given the previous day or evening, whenever possible.

SchoolMessenger (phone/email) - To receive important messages from your campus and the District by phone and email, it is important that your child’s campus has accurate and current information on file so that we can contact you as needed. If we do not have valid contact information on file, you could be missing important notifications.

SMS Text Messaging - You can elect to receive urgent messages, such as school closures and delays, via text message. To “opt in,” text the word YES to 68453. You will receive the following reply message: You are registered to receive approx 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help. Repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include. Please ensure that Comal ISD has your wireless number(s) in our student information database.
