We provide a stimulating, secure, and imaginative environment which fosters learning, self-esteem, and independent thinking. At Windthorst ISD, our kids genuinely come first.

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.

Several weeks ago it seemed like a normal spring day with a busy spring schedule taking place as usual.  The only difference was a virus that was affecting people in other countries and in several states away.  Few weeks ago the first school in Texas shut down for what was hopefully a short amount of time. Now, the governor of Texas shut down every school district through May 3rd.

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 to educate the students. They have been working hard to find creative ways to educate their classes as this challenge continues. Teachers have put in many hours developing online classrooms, answering emails, making phone calls and videos in order to stay in contact with students. Teachers are also making accommodations for students without access to the internet. The technology department has been available to help with the changing needs of the staff and students.

Our maintenance staff is continuing to keep our grounds and buildings well maintained. The cafeteria staff has deep cleaned and sanitized the kitchen. The business office is adapting to changing regulations and still keeping the day to day business running smoothly. 

So, what’s next?

This is a first for everyone and the situation changes daily.  Windthorst ISD will be back in school as soon as the safety level rises for the students, staff, and community.  As I am writing this, we are scheduled to return to school on May 3rd.  However, I believe we need to be prepared for a longer period of time.  

We will provide two more weeks of instruction for students. We commend the parents as they navigate through working, taking care of their families, and now additionally, adjusting to a home learning environment. 

Our hope is that we will be able to continue on with UIL events, banquets and prom in some fashion.  Once again, we will have to wait to make any decisions.

We will get through this!!
