Local News

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Officials with the Wichita Falls Independent School District announced Tuesday night that all facilities will be closed until further notice, effective immediately.

WFISD officials also announced that they will switch to an online learning platform beginning March 30.

Our instructional staff has been working to develop a curriculum that can be taught in an online environment as well as a paper/”low-tech” environment. WFISD will ensure that all families that request “low-tech” instruction, receive those resources. Curriculum specialists and administrators will be working with teachers the remainder of this week to ensure they have the tools necessary to assist your children.

Parents of WFISD students who need to pick up their items from or return items to their school are encouraged to contact their student’s principal via e-mail.
