COVID-19 DISTRICT INFORMATION
UPDATE: Denison ISD to Extend School Closure through May 1, 2020
In light of recent local, state, and national announcements, and in line with CDC guidance, Denison ISD will be extending our school closure through at least Friday, May 1, 2020. In addition, there will be no extra-curricular activities or practices during the extended closure. Every effort must be taken to slow the spread of the COVID-19. The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority.
Students will continue receiving at-home instruction during this closure. Elementary and intermediate students with internet access should continue to check the Denison ISD website for weekly lessons. Packet pickup will continue for those families who do not have internet access. Scott Middle School and Denison High School students will continue to receive assignments via Schoology. Meal delivery will continue using established procedures and locations through May 1, 2020.
Denison ISD is so very proud of the extra efforts given by our educators to produce at-home lessons. Likewise, the District is appreciative of our partnership with our families as they help to deliver these at-home lessons to ensure the continued academic growth of our students. Continue to monitor the Denison ISD website on a daily basis for updates. www.denisonisd.net
Throughout the extended closure, Denison ISD will continue to serve Grab & Go Meals at the following locations:
▶ Scott Middle School - 1901 S. Mirick Avenue
▶ B. McDaniel Intermediate - 400 Lillis Lane
▶ Lamar Elementary - 1000 S. Fifth Avenue

In addition, we will begin meal delivery to certain areas of town where there are clustered residential areas. We are asking the community for help in identifying areas where meal delivery would be beneficial. Additional sites include:

Anyone 18 and under is welcome to participate in this free breakfast and lunch program. Both meals will be served simultaneously 10:00am – 12:30pm Monday through Friday which will allow families to pick up both meals at once.
We appreciate your partnership with each of our schools, and we are thankful that we get to be a part of your students’ lives. Please know that we will continue to do everything within our power to ensure the safety and health of all of those entrusted to our care.
