2015-16 SAISD Back-to-School Information
First Day of School in SAISD is Aug. 24
Gearing up for the start of a new school year can be stressful! We’ve put together a list of essentials we hope will make the transition a bit smoother.
Use our address lookup feature to find which school your child is zoned to attend, based on your home address.
If you have not yet registered your child for the 2015-16 school year, you can do so Aug. 4-6, 2015. Registration times will be 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m., with extended evening hours running until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5. Registration takes place at the school your child will attend. If you have questions, contact the campus.
Check out our registration page to find required documentation and other helpful information.
Students are required by law to have up-to-date immunizations. Students cannot go to school without the proper documentation for the required vaccines or a valid medical or conscientious exemption.
Visit our immunizations page to view requirements and other important information. For more information about immunizations, contact San Antonio Metropolitan Health District at (210) 207-8750.
View the 2015-16 Pre-K-5 school supply list. This is a general list; campuses may require additional items. Supply requirements vary at middle and high schools.
All SAISD students must be attired in a uniform of khaki pants, shorts, skorts or skirt, and a white top or alternate school-approved colored shirt. Click to view the 2015-16 guidelines. Complete details will be included in the Parent-Student Handbook that is available upon request or online. If you need assistance purchasing your child’s uniforms, please contact (210) 554-2600.
Afterschool programs offer a mix of academic and physical activities for students on campus after the regular school day, up until 6:15 p.m. All of the District’s elementary schools, and most middle schools, offer an afterschool program in partnership with a number of community organizations. View a list of the organizations, their contact number and the schools where they operate programs.
SAISD provides free meals to all students through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called Community Eligibility and a small contribution of local funds. Families at only a few campuses will be required to complete meal applications, and those families will be provided the application during registration. Check out the SAISD Food and Child Nutrition Services website to view menus and learn more about the program.
