A new way for you to receive school updates is by text message. Remind101 is a web service that provides schools the opportunity to send text messages to big groups at no charge to us. The school will not be filling your Inbox with messages, but will use the texts to remind parents of picture days, school holidays, and those kinds of things. If we have a bad weather closing or delay, we could send the word in a quick text. If you are interested:

Send the message @noco  to 469-352-2754

Or you may send an email to

Your information remains confidential. The school will not see your number. The message goes out from the website.

Nocona ISD

If you are not sure whether you should bring your child to school or not, please call the office at 825-3151.

Despite all your best efforts, your child is probably going to get sick; especially during his or her first few years of contact with larger groups of children. A child’s immunity will improve with time.

If your child is sick, please keep him home to prevent unnecessary spread of illness.

Send a note when the child returns to school to explain the need for the absence.
