SAVE THE DATE! This year marks the 40th anniversary of Quitman's first playoff victory in football. At halftime of this year's Homecoming game, all former coaches, players, cheerleaders, band members and administrators from this historic season will be honored. Please join us in celebrating!
Dear QISD Parents and Guardians,
In an effort to remain as transparent as possible, we feel it is necessary to notify you of an incident that occurred yesterday at Quitman JH. Sometime around 5 pm the district was made aware that a JH student had made a verbal threat about bringing a firearm to school the next day. Let me be clear, there was no weapon on school property at any time; however, we take each threat seriously.
The district immediately contacted local law enforcement. An arrest was made Monday evening by the Quitman Police Department.
We appreciate the continued support of our parents, community, and local law enforcement.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s school at 903.763.5000.

The TEA released ratings for each individual campus in addition to our overall district rating of "A." QISD is proud to announce that we received an "A" rating at the high school level and "B" ratings at the junior high and elementary levels. Way to go Bulldogs! Thank you to all the students, faculty, staff and community members who have worked so hard to help us be our best!
The Texas Education Agency released their annual ratings for all Texas school districts today. Quitman was rated top honors as an "A" school district. Congratulations to all of the students, staff, faculty, administrators and community supporters who have worked together to make QISD an "A" rated school district! Great job Bulldogs!
Yes, QUITMAN ISD IS PROVIDING FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FOR ALL STUDENTS! There has been some confusion because many districts have posted notices that the "free meals" are no longer available. It is true that many districts provided free meals during the COVID CRISIS and that temporary arrangement has now ended. QUITMAN ISD participates in a different program. The Community Eligibility Provision allows QISD to continue to offer free breakfast and lunch to ALL STUDENTS!
Are you ready for some football? Season tickets available for purchase at the QISD administration building, located at 600 N. Winnsboro St. They are $20 per seat, which reserves fans a designated spot for all 4 home games this season. A seating chart is available at the admin office.
Thank you to Reflections Hospice of Texas for dropping off treats at our campuses for our faculty and staff. We appreciate you and all of our community supporters!
