Season Ticket on Sale

Due to the Covid-19 situation sports venues around the state and here at Windthorst have been required to limit the attendance to 50 percent of the maximum capacity in the bleachers. In an effort to make sure you are allowed to attend football games we will be selling season passes for the 5 home varsity football games. The price for the passes will be $25 for the season. We will sell the tickets at the gate for the normal price of $6 for adult and $4 for students. We will set back 2 passes, to purchase, for varsity football players, band members, and cheerleaders parents. There will be a maximum of 2 passes reserved per family. This will guarantee parents the opportunity to attend the games if they purchase tickets. These passes can be purchased in the Superintendent’s Office prior to the 1st home ball game. They will not be sold at the gate. The Superintendent’s Office hours are 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m., Monday – Friday.

Please call the Superintendent’s Office if you have any questions.

Our Superintendent

Parents, Staff, Community,
I know all of you are following the ever changing situation and responses surrounding the COVID-19 virus. I understand this is a challenging time for all of us.
Through all of this, Windthorst ISD is continuing to place the educational needs and safety of the students and staff at the forefront. All of our work environments have changed but our dedication to the students remains steadfast. I am very proud of our staff for their diligence in continuing as they prepare for the upcoming school year and ways to meet all of students educational needs
Our maintenance staff is continuing to keep our grounds and buildings well maintained as well as updated procedures for cleaning and sanitizing. The business office is adapting to changing regulations and still keeping the day to day business running smoothly. As TEA continues to update, we are working to ensure that we are following guidelines to ensure the safety of all students and staff. We will be updating parents and community through website, social media, and emails when necessary.
Please discuss with your students that there may be some changes in the upcoming year. Help us set the tone for a great year by preparing your child that there maybe a few changes but are needed for their safety. Encourage your students to be willing to work with teachers and to have a positive attitude. The staff will be understanding of how hard the changes may be for some and will continue to be positive, encouraging and compassionate with your children.
We are looking forward to this coming year, ready to meet the challenges that lay ahead and continue the high level of education that you have come to know here at Windthorst ISD.
