Press Release Updated
KINGSVILLE, Texas (Thursday, December 7, 2017, 6:00 p.m.)—The Kingsville Independent School District makes the following statement regarding school schedule delay plans for Friday, December 8th.
Since a Winter Weather Warning has been issued for our area including ice and snow for tomorrow’s early morning hours, classes will be delayed.
School will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 8th for students and School busses will pick up students two hours later than normal.
Staff will report to work at 9:00 a.m.
Please stay tuned to the KISD District Website or your child’s school website and local media for updates in case weather conditions change.
With the holiday season underway, people are feeling festive-including at work. But whether you're decorating your office or classroom or taking part in a school or company potluck, safety should always remain a top priority!
The Community Fair was canceled due to inclement weather on August 25th. However, donations of school supplies, backpacks and T-Shirts were sent to our KISD Schools to put the items in the hands of the children that need them.
As we are enrolling new children to the district that might have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey or are in need of school supplies and clothing, we are trying our very best to meet their needs.
As a school district, on a yearly basis from Federal Programs/Title 1, we are able to provide 9 sets of uniforms to each of our schools for Pre-K through 8th grade. In addition, the Kleberg Area Association of Realtors provide shoes to our district children. Therefore, our Federal Programs Office provides 5 pairs of shoes to each of our schools for needy children.
A couple of entities have offered to collect school supplies and sets of uniforms to be provided to children that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey that are enrolling in our schools. If these uniforms come to us, they will go immediately to these children and if there are any extras, they will be sent to other Texas areas in need.
At this time, we would like to express our most heartfelt thanks to the following Community Sponsors for their donations which include:
Communities in Schools,
Gear Up Grant, Dr. Mary Gonzalez-TAMUK
Kleberg Area Association of Realtors,
Liz Saenz: Caring Helping Hands Ministries, Inc.,
New Wave Communications,
TAMUK President’s Office,
Perez Elementary and
San Antonio Youth Ed. Support.
Kingsville ISD will be holding a parent volunteer orientation session this Thursday, August 31st. This session is mandatory for any parent wishing to assist at our schools this year. The training will be held from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM at the KISD Administration Building located at 207 N Third Street. Please bring a valid driver’s license or picture ID.
Kingsville ISD---Press Release
August 27, 2017
The Kingsville ISD Family and Community is known for always coming together to lend a helping hand to our neighbors in need and Hurricane Harvey has provided that opportunity.
Some of our fellow Texans north of Kingsville have sought temporary shelter with their extended families in our own city. KISD is providing an outreach to these families and opening our Schools to their school age children.
Our goal is to ensure that we enroll children into a classroom as soon as possible so that their education continues.
The enrollment process that the District will follow for families displaced by Hurricane Harvey is as follows:
• Contact the Kingsville ISD Office of Curriculum and Instruction at 361-592-3387 to enroll children or come by this office at the KISD Administration Building at 207 N. 3rd St. Kingsville, TX 78363.
• Families that are displaced as a result of the hurricane can still enroll without documentation.
The first day of classes for Kingsville ISD is Tuesday August 29th.
For further information, please contact the Office of Curriculum and instruction at 361-592-3387.
