Getting ready for the school year can be overwhelming, but don't worry, we've got you covered! Below is a helpful checklist to ensure that you stay on track and don't miss anything important.
1. Enrollment / Registration
NEW Student Enrollment is OPEN NOW!
Step 1: Begin enrollment here: www.snyderisd.net/welcome

RETURNING Student Online Enrollment Verification OPENS THURSDAY, JULY 20TH
Complete online registration verification between July 20-Aug 5
If you forgot your username or password, please submit a request here: bit.ly/SISDSkyward. This a busy time for requests, so please be patient as we handle these requests manually at each campus.
2. Verify Immunizations are Up-to-Date
Immunizations are required to come to public school. Returning students, to check what records we have on file:
Log in to Skyward bit.ly/SISDSkyward
Select your student’s name from the top drop-down menu
Select "health info" in the left column.
View the vaccinations we have on record for your child and if any are out of compliance.
Overdue? Schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider or call the Scurry County Health Unit to make arrangements for needed vaccinations asap.
TDHS Requirements for Public Schools are located here.
3. Download/Update the ParentSquare App:
This is the primary tool for receiving important information from the school, and an easy way to communicate with your child’s teachers.
Don't forget to turn your notifications on! If you have questions about ParentSquare, contact your child's
campus or email email@example.com If you are new to the district, welcome! Once you have completed online registration verification in Skyward it will take 24 hours for your account to become active in ParentSquare. Once you download the app, your username will be the email you used to register your student for school.
4. Complete Free & Reduced Lunch Application Forms
Forms were mailed home and are also available at your child’s school.
Whether or not you qualify, completing these forms will also give you 50% discount on technology fees!
5. Load Lunch Accounts (or get current on last year’s account):
Make an online payment here: https://www.snyderisd.net/page/meals
