Back to School Toolkit 2020-2021

 

We are excited to welcome students back to school on Thursday, August 17, 2020!  A Hachie Strong year of educational excellence is ahead of us. This page will serve as your official “Back-to-School Toolkit,” where you will find registration and enrollment information for new and returning students, school supply information, important back to school dates, and more.

 

Registration for the 2020-21 school year is now available via Skyward Family AccessAll students, whether attending in person or online, must be registered via Skyward Family Access.  A separate application for online learning must be filled out for each student wishing to participate in online learning by Monday, August 10, at noon.

 

We know you have many questions about the upcoming school year.  We have created a Frequently Asked Questions document to assist you in finding answers to those questions.

 

 

All returning WISD students must enroll online before the first day of school. Parents must be enrolled in Family Access to enroll their children online. Online enrollment for returning WISD students is now open.   Log in to Skyward Family Access and update all requested information.  New this year: You may upload your proof of residency (utility bill or mortgage statement) into Skyward rather than delivering it to your child’s campus.

 

**Important: Please ensure that after completing the online registration, you submit the necessary documentation to your child’s campus. If this documentation is not received by the campus, your child will not receive their classroom assignment and/or class schedule. You are encouraged to submit this documentation electronically to your child's campus, but should you need to submit documentation in person, please contact your child's campus to make an appointment.

 

Student and campus forms and documents such as campus handbooks, course catalogs, dress codes, student code of conduct, and the school supply list can be found on the Student Forms and Documents page.

Qualifying Pre-K students in the district will attend Turner Prekindergarten Academy, Marvin Elementary, or Northside Elementary.  Please click here for information on qualifications.

 

You may register students that are new to the district via Skyward Family Access. If you prefer to register your child in person, please contact your child’s campus to make an appointment for registration.
