Viewing Progress Reports and Report Cards

Please look at how your child is progressing. If you have questions, please reach out to your child's teacher.

See directions below, and be sure to electronically sign each report.

Health Screenings

Burnet CISD health services began conducting state-mandated vision, hearing and scoliosis (spinal) screenings at all campuses throughout the district. If your child wears glasses or contacts, please make sure that he/she brings them to school daily as they will need them during the vision screening. You will be notified by the nurse ONLY if medical follow-up is necessary based on the results of the screenings. The screenings completed at school do not replace your child’s need for regular healthcare and routine check-ups.

All new students to BCISD and all students in Pre-K, Kinder, 1st grade will have a vision and hearing screening.

Student Badges on Backpacks

Please help your child keep his/her school issued student badge attached to the backpack, and that the backpack comes to school every day. Badges are used during breakfast for meals. They also help with campus safety.

Students who do not have their badge with them at breakfast will need to get a badge from our grade level box of Borrowed Badge Cards. This will delay students as they go through the breakfast line. Please help you child have their badge each day.
