COVID-19 DISTRICT INFORMATION

Denison ISD

UPDATE: Denison ISD to extend school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Based on Governor Gregg Abbott's April 17, 2020 message, Denison ISD will be extending our school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  In addition, there will be no extra-curricular activities or practices during the extended closure.  Every effort must be taken to slow the spread of the COVID-19.   The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. 

 

Students will continue receiving at-home instruction during this closure.  Elementary and intermediate students with internet access should continue to check the Denison ISD website for weekly lessons.  Packet pickup will continue for those families who do not have internet access.  Scott Middle School and Denison High School students will continue to receive assignments via Schoology.  Meal delivery will continue using established procedures and locations will continue as well until further notice. 

 

Denison ISD is so very proud of the extra efforts given by our educators to produce at-home lessons.  Likewise, the District is appreciative of our partnership with our families as they help to deliver these at-home lessons to ensure the continued academic growth of our students.    Continue to monitor the Denison ISD website on a daily basis for updates.  www.denisonisd.net

Play Board Games

Writing Opportunities

Pose “Would you rather” questions to your scholar. Then, have them write a story about their response.

For example, ask:

  • Would you rather it be warm and raining or cold and snowing today? Or Would you rather be able to create a new holiday or create a new sport?

Then, your scholar could write about what he might do on a rainy or snowy day, or what holiday or sport she would create!

DENISON ISD BETTER TOGETHER

Meet the principal...

I am so thrilled to be joining the wonderful staff of Terrell Elementary School as principal.  I look forward to growing the many wonderful things already happening at our school! I was a 7th grade English teacher in Denison ISD for 12 years  Prior to working in Denison, I taught 1st grade in Plano ISD.  Most recently I have been working with K-1 curriculum team.  As part of the curriculum job, I was blessed to be the ACES/GT teacher here at Terrell and have already gotten to know so many students, faculty, and parents!

Mrs. Amy Neidert

ATTENTION TERRELL PARENTS
