Elementary Educational Services

The Elementary will be open Monday, March 30 from 9:00-2:00 for parents to turn in their students work and to get the next round of assignments.  We will also have report cards ready to go at this pick-up. 

Stacy Schroeder also asked that if your child has library books to please bring them up here that day so we can turn them in.  She would like to have as many of these turned in as possible – At this time they are unable to check out any more books.
Thank you again for working with your children during this time!!  We appreciate all of you!!

Facilities Closed

For the safety of our students and the community, Windthorst ISD athletic facilities will be closed.  No organized practices or games will take place on WISD property while school is closed. 

JH and HS Educational Services

A note from Mr. Longcrier:
Windthorst Jr High and High School is contacting every student’s parents in order to let them know we are providing educational services during this very strange time.
There will be someone at the Jr High/High School from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Thursday (3-19-20) and Friday (3-20-20). You may have to come to the principal’s office to find them. The HS front door will be unlocked.
There will be teachers available in both High School and Jr. High from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Monday (3-23-20), Tuesday (3-24-20), and Wednesday (3-25-20). If a student needs to ask a question of get some help, it would be best to contact the school at this time.
We apologize for the inconvenience and are very appreciative of your understanding. We are in completely uncharted waters and will continue to do the best we can.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. (roy.longcrier@windthorstisd.net or 940-423-6680)

Windthorst Independent School District is a public school district based in Windthorst, Texas, USA.

Located in Archer County , the district extends into a portion of Clay County.

Our Mission & Vision

Our goal at Windthorst Independent School District is to ensure that all students succeed at every grade level and graduate from high school fully prepared and equipped for the next level of their educational journey.  Every staff member in the Windthorst Independent School District is committed to providing our students with the tools to explore and achieve their potential, to take responsibility for their own learning, and to recognize that learning is a lifelong process. We provide a stimulating, secure, and imaginative environment which fosters learning, self-esteem, and independent thinking. At Windthorst ISD, our kids genuinely come first.

The Windthorst Independent School Distrist has a proud tradition of educational achievement, receiving an “A” rating in the newly formed Accountably System in 2017-2018.









Our Superintendent

Windthorst ISD has closed starting March 17, 2020 through March 27, 2020 to support our community and health care professionals in the ongoing goal of containing the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Additionally, all extracurricular activities, practices and athletic events are suspended while we are closed.

We do not make this decision lightly. We fully realize it presents significant difficulties to working parents. However, we are hopeful that these measures will better ensure the long-term health and safety of children, staff, and the larger community.

Windthorst ISD is finalizing logistics on the educational needs of the students while school is out.  We will also take this week to further clean schools and buses and restock custodial and nursing supplies.

Additionally, Windthorst asks the broader community to take the following reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of the illness:

  • Don’t shake hands
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Limit movement within the community, especially avoiding crowded placed and maintaining 3 to 6 ft of distance between people (at least an arm’s length)
  • If you are moving around in the community, don’t congregate in large groups
  • For those who have traveled to areas with known COVID-19 cases – both inside and outside of the country – we ask that you self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms.
  • If you suspect you have symptoms of COVID-19, call your health care provider for medical advice .
  • Keep your child at home if he/she feels ill, even if you think it is just a cold.
  • Do not leave the house if you are ill, except to access medical care.

This is a quickly changing situation, and we will continue to monitor information, will assess conditions throughout the week, and will provide the another update using our website, Facebook page, and email when more information come to our attention.

Thank you for your support and cooperation as we ensure that all members of the community in Windthorst ISD stay safe and healthy.

Lonnie Hise

Superintendent, Windthorst ISD
