MOST CURRENT INFORMATION:
April 17, 2020
Today, Governor Greg Abbott announced that school buildings would remain closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 School year. He stated that additional information would be coming next week from Education Commissioner Mike Morath on exactly what that means for Texas Schools.
For Perryton ISD, we will continue to provide distance learning for our students and also continue to increase access opportunities for students with limited or no internet connectivity.
The UIL has also announced the cancelation of all sports for the rest of the year.
As we plan for the remainder of the school year, we will be having a couple o online meetings next week. Tuesday, April 21 at 10:00 am the entire PISD staff will meet online so everyone can get on the same page. Then, Wednesday evening, April 22 at 5:30 pm we will host a community-wide Facebook Live meeting. CLICK HERE to go to the meeting.
We will continue our Grab & Go food service each day that we would have had school under the original school calendar. Friday, April 24 and Monday, April 27 were “Snow Days” on that calendar. Since we did not take any days for snow during the year, our PISD staff will be off that day. That also means no distance learning assignments on those days.
Thank you all for your continued patience and support through these trying times. We will post additional updates as more information comes out from state leadership.
Have a great day and be safe.

Good evening all;
We wanted everyone to know Perryton ISD is open and fully ready to serve our students and community. School is not closed, but the buildings are. Throughout the past two weeks you have most likely heard the buzz of hard working teachers and administrators readying for distance learning. You may have driven through the free lunch line, feeding your children the efforts of our food service staff, fortified with love, friendly waves, and a nutritious meal. Our support staff may have assisted with handing out chromebooks, building new wi-fi access points, or ensuring every visit is as safe as possible with buildings that are continuously cleaned. Our staff is preparing to save the day, investing energy in developing ways of instruction that have never been seen before. Yes, we are heartbroken and disappointed in the current medical crisis, but our teams are prepared to lead our children and community through any challenge to achieve success.
I, along with our teachers and staff, love working with your children and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives.
PISD has wi-fi hot spots for students on the PHS and PJH Parking lots. CWC has a free guest wi-fi on their parking lot as well. Additional locations are coming soon.
