We will have a normal school day. Weather officials report little rain this morning but we still want to ensure all of our students, families and staff use an abundance of caution traveling to schools and work.

If you feel like your route to school may be unsafe, we trust parents to make the best decision possible regarding safe travel to and from school. Please contact your child’s campus if you decide to keep him or her home due to safety concerns with inclement weather. This will serve as an excused absence.

UPDATE 3:30 P.M.: The safety and security of our students is our top priority in Leander ISD. In an effort to keep you informed, please review the following details regarding a school bus accident involving one middle school student and a driver earlier this morning. We want to share this information directly with our families and staff. 

At 8:28 a.m., a bus driver attempted to drive over a low-water crossing on County Road 177, heading east from Ronald Reagan Boulevard toward County Road 175.

Leander PD arrested the bus driver for driving around a barricade. He is no longer employed by Leander ISD.

All buses have been rerouted from CR 177 due to the road’s closure.

Leander Police and Fire departments arrived on the scene and completed a water rescue for the student and the bus driver. Williamson County EMS treated the student and released to the family.

The Transportation Department regularly reviews protocols for driving safely on roadways and instructs bus drivers to never drive through water over the roadway. Transportation dispatch reminded drivers this morning to be cautious and call for assistance if encountering water over the roadway.

We want to thank our first responders in Leander and Williamson County for their outstanding efforts in keeping our students, staff and community safe.

As we continue to monitor inclement weather, please know our team works diligently to ensure safety. If you feel like your route to school may be unsafe, we trust parents to make the best decision possible regarding safe travel to and from school. Please contact your child’s campus if you decide to keep him or her home due to safety concerns with inclement weather. This will serve as an excused absence.

We have one report of a school without power and phones: Rutledge Elementary. The Austin Fire Department is on site at RES as an extra precaution. The school is taking every precaution to keep kids safe and to maximize instructional time. The school is warm, and we will bring food in from a different school for lunch.
