Palo Pinto ISD continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by coronavirus. The District receives regular updates and guidance from Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath and other local, state and federal agencies regarding response, prevention and mitigation efforts. This direction has changed repeatedly over the last several months and will continue to evolve based on COVID-19 conditions across the state and our local community.

  • PPISD Instructional Intent SurveyParents, please complete the Instructional Intent Survey by clicking the link on the left to indicate which method of instruction, In-Person or Remote, you are planning for your child(ren) for the start of the 20-21 School Year.  If you have more than one child attending PPISD, please complete the survey for each child.  It is highly recommended that you thoroughly review each of the above plans so you can make an informed decision.  Your decision can be changed up through August 2 at 11:59pm.  We will soon be asking you to complete registration for your child(ren).  We are attempting to offer registration online and we will let you know when the system is available.  All students must register.  You will be asked to finally declare the instructional choice for your child(ren) at that time as part of the registration process.

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Your household may be eligible to receive Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits to buy food. P-EBT is for children 5-18 years old who received SNAP food benefits for the month of March 2020 and children up to 21 years old who are certified for free or reduced-price meals at school in Texas during the 2019-20 school year. Children that attend a school that offers free meals to all students (Community Eligibility Provision or Provision 2) are also eligible. Palo Pinto Elementary is a Community Eligibility Provision school.

The online application for P-EBT is now open. Please review the criteria to see if you need to apply to receive these benefits. The application link is provided below.
