Beginning Monday, March 16 until Sunday, March 22, all Denton ISD schools and facilities (including all athletic facilities) will be closed.

All buildings are closed to outside rentals during this time as well.

District staff should remain in communication with their supervisor and/or principal regarding their individual needs and workflow.

Denton ISD is actively working to provide information and opportunities for teachers and students to stay safely connected through distance learning and online resources.

Please know that we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and participate in daily calls with local, state and federal officials. We will provide updates as more information becomes available.
