Elementary Early Release Dates

Sept. 16, 2020

In order to allow time for teachers to collaborate and plan exceptional learning experiences for our students, this year all elementary campuses in Dripping Springs ISD have scheduled six “early release” dates. On the days listed below, on-campus learners will be dismissed at 12:00 p.m. and the remote learning schedule will be adjusted as well.

  • Tuesday, September 22
  • Tuesday, November 3
  • Friday, December 18
  • Tuesday, February 9
  • Tuesday, April 13
  • Thursday, May 27

Please see the notes below regarding the processes and procedures that will take place on the dates identified for Early Dismissal at our Elementary Campuses.


All elementary campuses will make adjustments to the lunch schedule to provide a lunch time for students prior to dismissal. The DSISD Child Nutrition Department will continue to provide hot-entree items on early dismissal dates. Regular meal fees apply.


Transportation services will be provided upon dismissal at 12:00 p.m. for children who are regular bus riders. Children will be expected to ride their assigned bus to their regular bus stop. Children who do not regularly use DSISD transportation services may not ride a bus. Additional or alternative stops will not be made on early dismissal dates.


Due to limited staffing, DSISD Kids Club is not available for early release dates. 


Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that children are supervised upon dismissal at 12:00 p.m. DSISD staff will be not assigned to supervision of children upon conclusion of dismissal procedures on these dates.

Parents with questions regarding Elementary Early Release should reach out to the leaders at their child’s campus.
