School starts August 22, 2011!

July 22, 2011

Wondering when bus schedules are announced, what supplies your child needs, or where to register your child for school? All those questions and more are answered on Northside ISD’s Back to School website.

School starts Aug. 22 for more than 97,000 students in Northside ISD. The last day of school is May 31. There are 88 instructional days in the first semester and 89 in the second semester for a total of 177.

The Back to School website includes the most frequently asked questions, including information about registration, immunizations, calendars, school supply lists, bus routes, and more.

As a cost-savings measure, Northside ISD no longer is printing school calendars or mailing them to students’ homes. However, a printable, PDF version of the 2011-12 official school calendar is available online.

Parents are encouraged to sign up for a SchoolMessenger account (see “Contact Manager” section) to receive text message and email alerts from their child’s school.

In addition, stay in the loop on District news through Facebook and Twitter.
