Thank you!

Thank you again to our wonderful PTA for making teachers feel appreciated during Teacher Appreciation Week. They got several students together Sunday evening to write sidewalk notes that were awesome, and unfortunately were wiped away by the surprise storm Monday morning.

Thank you again!

Athletic Information

2016-17 Athletic Online Registration

Each year you will be required to complete athletic forms for Keller ISD. These forms are all completed online and require a parent and student electronic signature. If you have not completed the online registration process before please be sure to read through the instruction tab to ensure they are completed properly. Please follow the link below to complete your forms by May 31st , 2016.


Physical/Medical History Form

Along with the online registration forms, athletes are also required to provide a physical and medical history form. These forms are available on the registration site and must be printed out, filled out, and signed by a physician. Physicals may date back to January 1, 2016. The physical does not have to be completed by your primary physician, and most minute clinics or Care Now sites can complete these for you at a reasonable cost. You may turn completed physicals into the front office or your athlete can turn them in to their PE teacher upon their completion. Please be sure to sign the bottom of the medical history form, forms will not be accepted if they do not have a parent signature.

Girls Athletic Preview Days

UIL has granted us the opportunity to hold an athletic preview for the incoming 7th graders. This 3-day trial will allow students the opportunity to experience what athletics is all about prior to the upcoming school year. Students will be put through different types of sport specific practices and workouts during this three day period. Attendance is not mandatory and registration is not required. Students may attend one day, two days, or all three days (each day will be different.) However we MUST have a physical on file in order to allow participation. Dates and times are listed below:

Tuesday, May 17, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM
Wednesday, May 18, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM
Thursday, May 19, 2015 4:00-5:30 PM

Incoming 7th Grade Girls Athletic Parent Meeting

At the conclusion of the 3 day preview on Thursday, May 19th, we will hold our informational parent meeting to give you important information pertaining to athletics. Items that will be discussed include: Sports offered, athletic paperwork, expectations, and athletic gear.

If you are unable to attend the parent meeting any information discussed will be emailed out the following day. Again, attendance is not mandatory for parents or athletes, but if you have never had a child go through our athletic program it will help to answer some of the unknowns.

If you have questions pertaining to any information regarding athletics, please sent correspondence to the Girls Athletic Coordinator, Kristal Robeson at kristal.robeson@kellerisd.net

Nurse's Notes


Students entering 7th grade will need to have a current shot record on file in the nurse's office. If you are unsure if your student's record is current please email or call Jane Danielson at jane.danielson@kellerisd.net, call 817-744-2620 or fax an updated record today to 817-744-2621. State law states that your student will not be allowed to start school in August if their record isn't up to date. Doctor's office sometimes run out or low on vaccine the closer we get to the start of school. So please schedule your appointment soon.


Students are not allowed to carry medications in their backpacks or on them throughout the school day. All medication requires a form to be completed and medication will be given in the nurse’s clinic. Students may carry an inhaler if the physician signs paperwork and approves the child capable of administering the medication. Again there are forms to be completed and turned into the nurse’s office. Please call Nurse Danielson with any questions or concerns at 817-744-2620.
