Dear Northside families,
For years we have had a staggered start time for elementary, middle, and high schools. This gap in time between grade levels has helped our departments run efficiently as well as allowed for families to get multiple children to school in a timely manner.

Letters have been sent home with every student in NISD informing them about the new data verification process for returning students. This process will eliminate much of the 1st day of school paperwork. (Yeah!) Please ask your child for the letter and begin the process as soon as possible. Each letter contains a unique snapcode for each NISD student. If you have multiple students, you will need each child's letter with their personal code in order to complete the process.
