Dr. Hector P. Garcia Middle School~ Northside ISD

April 8-12, 2019

Dear Parents,

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. Please ask your child for the letter and begin the process as soon as possible. We'd like to have all Garcia students registered for the 2019-2010 school year by May 10th. Help us achieve our goal by logging in and completing this process.

**If we have 1400 students registered by April 30th, ALL students can wear their PE SHORTS to school on May 6th & 7th. **

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.

If for some reason your child did not receive a letter, please call the front office at 210-397-8400. If you need assistance completing the process, let us know.

Stopping by the school? If so, we have a computer set up in the front office to help you take care of this task. Just let anyone in the front know you'd like to complete the data verification process!

Thank you for completing this important task. Our hiring needs depend on the completion of this registration process.
