A Message From Our Superintendent

Dear GPISD Parents/Guardians and Families,


I hope each of you are having a safe and restful summer break, taking good care of yourselves and your loved ones. This is a great time to schedule fun activities to do together with family, friends, and loved ones, and to catch up on all those things you wanted to do, but didn't have time to enjoy during the school year.


Here in Galena Park I.S.D., we are working to plan a terrific 2021-2022 school year, and look forward to seeing our students back at school on Thursday, August 12. One thing I want to make you aware of is that our plans for the coming school year include a return to standardized dress for elementary and middle school students.


Please be sure to check the GPISD website and social media platforms regularly throughout the summer for district news and updates regarding the 2021-2022 school year.


Be safe,


John C. Moore, Jr., Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
