Official announcements during inclement weather will still be made on WBAP News Talk 820 AM and on KXAS Channel 5, KDFW Fox 4 News, KTVT Channel 11 and WFAA Channel 8. When the situation permits, the school will also post closings to the website. However, weather conditions often prevent school officials from relying on these communication methods.
Parents and employees should use messages from the School Messenger telephone notification system as the primary means for learning about weather-related closures and delays. The public can still turn to radio and television reports as a back-up or alternative way to confirm notification. Sometimes, UA opens on a delayed schedule due to bad weather. However, school is rarely dismissed early for bad weather conditions because of working parents and the safety concern with sending children home without adult supervision. UA will make every attempt to broadly communicate weather-related decisions using the School Messenger emergency telephone notification system and Dallas-Fort Worth media.
