From ages two to 92, bar none, Texans look forward to their turn at the annual State Fair. Dallas ISD students—and staff—are no exception. Young students get first dibs. District elementary schools will be shuttered Friday, October 10, for Elementary Day at the Fair. That day is a normal school day for secondary schools.
The following Friday, October 17, which happens to be the last Friday of the extravaganza, the older kids get their turn while the elementary students stay in school. All Dallas ISD secondary campuses will go dark October 17 in honor of Big Tex, corny dogs, pig races, rides, exhibits and cotton candy. Maybe we’ll see you there.
