Danbury ISD Child Nutrition Department is federally funded and regulated.  For information about this funding through USDA and TDA go to www.squaremeals.org

Because DISD does not meet the criteria required to provide meals to our students with federal funds, we are working together with Angleton ISD.

Angleton ISD Child Nutrition Department will offer a free meal to ALL children 18 or younger, including Danbury ISD children.  Child(ren) must be present when meals are picked up.  They have added another route to their schedule.  Please see attached schedule for the adjusted bus routes and information regarding curbside service.

DISD School Closing Information

DANBURY ISD to suspend normal operations through April 10

Danbury ISD Superintendent Nancy Sandlin has announced that Danbury ISD will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, April 10th in an effort to support the nation’s need to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Houston area continues to see an increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and health officials report that this number is expected to continue to increase as more testing is made available.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. The President has publicly shared that the community should not gather in groups larger than 10 people. The District will remain flexible as leaders plan for long-term delivery of instruction and continue to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation.  

Please continue to monitor your email and visit the District website and social media channels for more information on plans to deliver instruction and information on our feeding program.  The health of Danbury ISD students, staff and community is the District’s top priority and District leaders are working to ensure the community has the most current information available.  

Hours of Operation

District Administration office hours, while schools are closed, are from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  You may call (979) 922-1218 if you have questions, and we ask that you please call or e-mail to make an appointment before coming to the Administration Building. 

Campuses are closed but you can e-mail campus administrators, teachers, and staff members with questions.  Go to the website at www.danburyisd.org and under the Schools tab, you will find contact information for all campus personnel.

Continue to monitor emails and the website for announcements.
