House Bill 4545 (STAAR)

Please Note:

Per Texas law, if you do not send your student on the day of STAAR, they are required to make it up when they return in the testing window. If they do not take STAAR or do not approach the standard score for passing, they will be required to participate in 30 hours of intervention next year, per HB 4545. They will not have the option to test out with a Beginning-of-year screener next year, and they can not opt out of STAAR or the 30 hours of intervention.

Cell Phones

Please note:

The use of cell phones during the school day (8:15-3:30) is NOT permitted. Cell phones should be put away unless directed by the teacher for educational purposes. This includes in hallways and at lunch. Please help us support our students in limiting the use of phones during the school day.

Inclement Weather

When inclement weather is a possibility, Prosper ISD district officials continually monitor weather conditions during the overnight and early morning hours. The district takes several factors into consideration before making a decision to cancel school, delay school, or dismiss school early due to inclement weather. These primary factors include:


  • The health, safety, and welfare of students and staff; and the safe transport of students and staff to school.

  • Teenage drivers on the roads and their safety


Cancellations, Delays, and Early Releases – How Decisions are Made


When inclement weather threatens normal school operations, the following steps are taken:


  1. District officials evaluate the roadways and travel conditions across the district.

  2. The Superintendent consults with Prosper ISD transportation staff and district safety and security personnel.

  3. After taking into account all the information that is received from external and internal sources, the Superintendent will make a decision as early as possible whether to delay or cancel school.


The Communication Process – What Happens Next


When a decision is made to cancel school, delay school, or dismiss school early, the district will notify parents using Blackboard Connected through email, phone, and text notification alerts and the Prosper ISD website will be updated as quickly as possible.

Information about school closures, delays, or early dismissal will also be communicated through the following media, including but not limited to:


  • Prosper ISD Twitter: @ProsperISD

  • Prosper ISD Facebook

  • Prosper Instagram: @prosper_isd

  • Local television stations

  • Local radio stations

Because of the uncertainty of weather conditions, we ask that parents and staff monitor local media, the Prosper ISD website, and email before heading to school or sending children to the bus stop. An important rule of thumb to note is, if there is no announcement from Prosper ISD, then classes will be held on a normal schedule.

Chromebooks and Chargers

If a student loses his/her charger or the device needs repairs the parent/guardian can go to MySchoolBucks, select the Technology item, pay, send the receipt to their child so the child can show it to the tech, and the campus tech can provide a new charger or repairs.


Here are the direct links to items:

Reynolds MS Sports Tickets

All PISD Home Game tickets will be sold online through Ticket Spicket and Cash or Credit Card Sales at the Door

RMS Counselors' Corner

Here you can find information on what your RMS counselors will be up to throughout the year. We will include upcoming guidance lessons, resources and events on this page as well.

Be Kind Shirts

Our Hope Squads will continue to sell "Be Kind" yellow T-Shirts as a symbol to simply be kind to one another, which is why you often see "yellow" shirts scattered throughout our district on Wednesdays each week. This stems from supporting our cause of suicide awareness and prevention.



We will continue to light up the new Children's Health Stadium every Wednesday evening as a simple reminder for our community to show kindness and compassion to one another. If you find yourself driving around Prosper on Wednesday evenings, drive by the stadium to enjoy PISD's symbol for kindness.


To purchase a “Be Kind” t-shirt please click on the campus link below. Shirts and hoodies will be delivered to the campus monthly and will be sent home with your student.

How Do I Volunteer?

PISD requires each parent volunteer to complete a criminal background check form. In order for parents/guardians to attend field trips, volunteer at school, etc. this form must be completed at the beginning of each school year. The form can be found and completed on the Prosper ISD website here.

Payment for Lunch

Parents may pay for school lunches online by accessing the myschoolbucks.com tab located on the Prosper ISD website. During online registration, parents who wish to apply for meal benefits may print the application form there. Applications for meal benefits may be returned to the campus office or brought to the PISD Administration Building located at 605 E. 7th Street.
