Back to School Toolkit 2019-2020
We are excited to welcome back every member of our TRIBE on Wednesday, August 14, 2019! A year of Tradition, Respect, Integrity, Brilliance, and 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.
New and Returning Student Registration Guide
All returning WISD students must enroll online before the first day of school. Parents must be enrolled in Family Access to enroll their child online. Online enrollment for returning WISD students will open on Friday, July 26, 2019. Click here to access Skyward Family Access to register. **IMPORTANT: Please ensure that after completing online registration, you submit necessary documentation to your child’s campus. If this documentation is not received by the campus, your child will not receive their classroom assignment on Bring Your Supplies Night and/or class schedule. You may submit this paperwork during any of your campus’ registration hours (see New Student Registration section).
Elementary campuses only: Returning students may turn in required paperwork and register for Family Access during special evening hours on Thursday, August 1, from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
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.
We are excited for the second year of our full-day Pre-K at Turner Prekindergarten Academy! All qualifying Pre-K students in the district will attend Turner Prekindergarten Academy, located at 614 Getzendaner. Please call Turner at 972-923-4690 for details on qualification.

When students are walking to and from school, they should obey all traffic rules. For the children’s safety, the city provides crossing guards at designated locations. Students are encouraged to cross only where the guards can help them and must follow all district dismissal procedures.
Waxahachie ISD elementary campuses are focused on keeping all students safe during campus departure. In order to properly train all students in dismissal procedures and safety guidelines, we strongly recommend elementary students not walk to and from school without a parent or guardian until parents feel confident that students know safe walking home procedures. Parents or those listed as emergency contacts are required to provide either identification or a campus-assigned student or family sign to show that the person has authority to remove the student from the campus.
