Back-to-School Essentials

We’re gearing up for the start of a new school year and have put together a list of essentials we hope will make the transition a bit smoother for our families. We look forward to welcoming all our students back with 100% in-person instruction.

Get ready for the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 9!

School Safety

Safety continues to be a top priority and we will follow CDC guidance in our efforts to keep students, staff, and families safe. Click here to view the procedures SAISD will be taking to ensure a safe school start.


We are offering a safe, 100% in-person school experience for all student in school year 2021-22. We ended this past school year on a safe, strong note, and we will begin the next one on a strong note, too - beginning with our Summer Jump Start program and again in the fall.

At this time, we have suspended plans to provide a virtual school option for the upcoming school year. We have no legal authority to provide remote learning unless the state legislature grants it to us. We are keeping a close eye on the special legislative sessions to see if virtual learning might gain some traction, but we have not seen evidence of this yet.
