COVID-19 Update - March 31, 2020

The following message was emailed to all DPISD parents on March 31, 2020.
Earlier today, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order closing all Texas public schools until May 4 and extending statewide social distancing measures through April 30.


In compliance with Gov. Abbott’s executive order, Deer Park ISD will remain closed through Friday, May 1.  It remains unclear whether or not school will resume after that point, but as of today, the earliest we might return to school is Monday, May 4.


As has been the case throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the situation has the potential to change, and we will continue to keep you informed as events occur.


The District’s successful eLearning and free meal programs will also continue through May 1.  For more information about those programs, go to


Our highest concern remains the safety of our students, and we strongly encourage you to continue following strict social distancing measures.  We appreciate your patience, partnership, and support as we continue to provide the best student learning opportunities available for our students.


Thank you.
