Registration Extended For Kindergarten 2-Way Dual Language Enrichment Program
Kindergarten through 3rd grade new student registration is ongoing at Sulphur Springs ISD. This is for new-to-SSISD students only. Parents of students already enrolled in SSISD in pre-kindergarten or Head Start are not required to participate in the Online Round-up, but do need to complete the Returning Student Registration with their family’s Skyward Family Access account.
Currently, the district is offering face-to-face-registration by appointment and online registration also continues. New-to-the-district kindergarten through 3rd grade students will register with Patty Garcia, administrative assistant to the Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education by emailing Ms. Garcia at [email protected].
Families interested in enrolling their kindergarten students in the Two-Way Dual Language Enrichment Program may continue the application process at this time as well.
Registration for all of these program had just gotten under way when the COVID-19 closures began. As school begin resuming limited activities according to the guidelines established by the state, SSISD will once again offer face-to-face registration. The Kindergarten Dual Language Two-Way application window for incoming kindergarten students wanting to learn English and Spanish has also been extended.
“We are scheduling appointments for parents to come in, face-to-face, to start and/or finish registration, submit student enrollment documents and conduct student screenings,” said Kristin Monk, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education and Learner Services.
To register a student for kindergarten-3rd grade classes, or the kindergarten two-way dual-language enrichment program, parents will be asked to provide the following items:
- Proof of residency within the district. One of the following must be presented in the name of the parent or guardian: a current utility bill, current rent/lease agreement, or mortgage statement.
