All of the required documents are listed on a sheet in the paper packets, and the required documents must be provided prior to your child(ren) starting school. Once all paperwork is turned in and approved, your child(ren) will begin school the next school day.
CURRENT STUDENT REGISTRATION (students who are not new to the district)
In accordance with the Texas Education Agency’s annual update process, current students must complete online registration each school year. In order to avoid disruption in your child's educational experience, please complete registration on or before the end of the first week of school. Any current student who is not registered by the deadline, may no longer be enrolled.

Coping with Grief during the Holidays
The holidays are commonly thought of as a happy and joyous time of the year, but this is not the case for everyone. People may have experienced struggles, loss, and grief throughout the year. Coping with grief during the holidays can be especially tough as the contrast between the festive atmosphere and the feelings of sadness and loss can be overwhelming. Grief is a natural response to loss, and it is possible to find a way through this challenging time, allowing for a mix of healing and even moments of happiness. It is important to identify, anticipate, and prepare for ways in which our holiday observances may elicit grief reminders. If you will be celebrating with others who have also been impacted by loss, make a plan together.
Here are six ways to help cope with grief during the holidays:
• Discuss ways in which the holidays have been celebrated in the past.
• Think about what the holidays mean to you and consider if you want to celebrate them differently or how the holidays will be celebrated now.
• Recognize that people will be in a different place in their grief process and may need different support.
• Set realistic expectations and give yourself permission to laugh and permission to grieve.
• Make self-care a priority by maintaining a healthy routine and engaging in activities that bring you comfort and peace.
• Acknowledge that there will be a “new normal.” Lastly, lean on your support systems and reach out to friends and family who understand your grief and are willing to listen and provide support. Having an intentional plan in advance helps diffuse a potentially emotionally charged day. If you or someone you know needs extra help or support this holiday season, call or text the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.
