Kountze ISD missed school due to inclement weather (ice) on the 16th and 17th of Jan. 2018.   Therefore, students will need to make up the instructional time required by the Texas Education Agency.  KISD will add a few “extra” minutes to the front of our daily schedule starting on the 29 Jan. 2018.   Our first bell will ring at 7:36 am and school will be dismissed at the regular time.  By adding this make up time at the start of each day, KISD will not need to add any make up days to the calendar, and no changes will be made to the holidays, grading cycles, or the last day of school, which will remain 31 May 2018.  Should you have any questions please feel free to contact your campus principals. 


Order Your 17-18 Yearbook Now and receive special admission to our Yearbook Signing Party! A Signing Party will be scheduled on each campus when books are ready for fall delivery. Guests will receive Ice Cream treats and be provided with a special signing pen. Parties are open ONLY to those who order a yearbook before May 31st.

Kountze ISD lost a 6th grade student due to a horrific accident the evening hours of 8 Nov 2017.  Trintin Glenn was a student at Kountze Intermediate School.  He was very well liked and enjoyed by his teachers and fellow students.  Trintin attended Kountze Schools since kindergarten.  He actively participated in the youth football league, little dribblers, little league baseball, and academic math with the University Interscholastic League.  His vibrant personality made him a joy to be around.  He was an avid skateboard and bicycle enthusiast.  Additionally, he attended Cornerstone Baptist Church where his infectious smile was greeted at the door. 

What we will do for Trintin now is remember him with love.  We will see him, not in person, but in our minds and memories on the playground where he ran and played and laughed with others; we will see him in our minds and hearts in the halls and classrooms where he learned and grew and was such an important part of us.

We will keep that memory of Trintin alive in our hearts and minds; we will keep our love of him ever fresh, ever new; we will continue to see him with the eyes of memory, and we will cherish that memory as something very special—something very special indeed.


Congratulations to Noah Carter.  He placed 1st chair Trombone in the All-Region Jazz Band.
