Lancaster ISD Closed Indefinitely

To Lancaster ISD Parents and Staff:

To slow the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community, all Lancaster ISD schools will close indefinitely. This action follows advice from the Dallas County Health and Human Services department (DCHHS).

We recognize the significant impact this extended closure will have on the entire community, especially for families who depend on the district for critical services.

While our classrooms are empty, our work on behalf of children continues. We have activated at-home learning, our teachers are preparing to begin distance instruction, and Lancaster ISD Food and Child Nutrition Services will distribute meals at select campus locations. These sites will become central locations for family and student resource distribution in the coming weeks. Please expect phone messages with updates and visit for more information.

Thank you for working with us as we unite with organizations across the community to respond to COVID-19.


Dr. Elijah Granger

Superintendent of Schools
