Total Eclipse Information:

On Monday, April 8, the Dallas/Fort Worth area will become a prime location to view a total eclipse of the sun. An event this significant occurs just once every 100 years, and Mansfield ISD is excited to share this educational opportunity with our students at all of our campuses.

All students will receive eclipse viewing glasses provided by the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

Students will receive safety training on how to properly view the eclipse before the event.

For their safety, MISD’s youngest students, Pre-K and Kindergarten, will view the eclipse on monitors in their classrooms.

Out of an abundance of caution, all campuses will be closed to visitors from 1:20 to 2 p.m. on Monday, April 8.

If you prefer your student not to participate, please complete this Google form. DIIS Solar Eclipse Opt OUT form

Students and parents can learn more about how to safely view an eclipse by watching this NASA video. For more information about the upcoming eclipse, visit the NASA website.

End of Year Activity Participation Expectations-UPDATED

Dear Husky Families,

Spring has officially sprung! There are lots of fun activities planned for the end of the school year. We all know that with the weather change, misbehavior tends to increase. Therefore, we want to continue to hold our Husky Pups accountable. Please take note of the following:

Due to the cancellation of the Blooming Fest Dance on 4/12, criteria has been updated:

Any student who receives a referral resulting in ISS (In School Suspension) or OSS (Out of School Suspension) between Monday, March 25th and Friday, May 17th is not eligible to attend Field Day (May 16th) or the PTA End of Year dance (May 17th).

Elective teachers and coaches have put expectations in place regarding field trips and track meet participation. Please be on the lookout for communication from them.

Please speak with your Husky to remind them of expectations and review the MISD Student Code of Conduct. Let’s finish strong in these last nine weeks!
