Breckenridge ISD Closed Indefinitely
In response to the county, state, and federal public health recommendations and emergency declarations, Breckenridge ISD will remain closed indefinitely. When public health officials determine that schools can safely reopen, the Breckenridge ISD community will be notified with sufficient time to plan to return to school.
All Breckenridge ISD campuses will continue to provide instruction in the most effective manner possible during this closing. Breakfast and lunch will continue to be served to all school age children 18 years or younger. Please pay attention to the COVID-19 webpage found at www.breckenridgeisd.org for updates.
Thank you for your consideration and patience during this unique and challenging time.
Wash your hands! Practice social distancing! Stay safe and healthy!

Packet Pick-up and Drop-off has been cancelled!
Updated: We are going to mail out the next 4 weeks of instructional packets (Apr. 13, Apr. 20, Apr. 27 and May 4) in one envelope on Thursday, April 16th. PLEASE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS IN SKYWARD TO ENSURE IT IS CORRECT. We ask that you kindly adhere to the following updated directions:
- In order to keep our staff safe and healthy, we are asking that you take a photo of the assignments in your student's packet which will have an asterisk next to it in the weekly menu. Please send the picture to the teacher’s Dojo or email account. If you are not connected to Dojo, I highly recommend getting connected in order to be informed about classroom assignments, events, and for direct teacher communication purposes.
- If you take a picture of the assignment, you will not need to turn in a completed packet.
- Updated: If you cannot take a picture and send it to the teacher, we will accept your packet from 11:30 - 1:00 on Mondays only. There will be a tub for each grade level in front of the main entrance of the campus where you can return the paper assignments.
-Teachers will be working from home, but will have scheduled hours where they will be available via email, phone conference, and/or Dojo for any help or questions that may need to be answered. Teacher work hours will be 8:00 - 3:30 Monday - Friday. Remember, they will not be on campus, so please contact them directly.

Message from Abby Moore, BISD Librarian
BISD Families --
We will not be asking you to return students' library books at this time! If you have our library books at your house, please enjoy them!! In the meantime, please follow this page. I will be posting lots of resources for online reading, as well as hosting some fun competitions for our BISD kiddos. Remember, we want our kiddos reading EVERY DAY for at least 20 minutes. If you are at home with your kiddos, try to find space for reading every day for you too. Reading can be incredibly healing, and it's a great way to escape from the moment when things seem overwhelming. Much love to all of our students and families during this time!
