Reopening School 2020
As we continue to plan for the return of students and staff for the 2020-2021 school year, please know the health and safety of each individual who enters our doors remains Galena Park I.S.D.'s priority. We are committed to providing the safest and healthiest facilities in which to work and learn for our school community.
Per the Texas Commissioner of Education, Mike Morath, and the Texas Education Agency guidelines, the District is planning for parents to select one of two available options: 100% face-to-face regular school, or 100% Remote Learning/Virtual Instruction. We will update this website with new information as it becomes available. We encourage you to check this webpage at least once a week.
Returning Student Verification is scheduled to begin on July 20th and one of the forms required is for parents to select the instructional arrangement for their child(ren). New student enrollment will begin on August 1st.
Together, we will overcome any obstacles in our path and will do whatever it takes to provide every student in Galena Park I.S.D. with the world-class education they deserve.
Thank you for your continued support.

Texas Education Agency Coronavirus (COVID-19) Support and Guidance
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19. TEA’s role in these efforts is to help coordinate the flow of information from the state to districts, help districts solve problems, and provide guidance that will aid in districts’ decision-making. TEA does not have the general authority to close schools for matters related to health. This authority lies with the local health authority, DSHS, and the Governor of Texas.
