Back to School Forms! Deadline approaching soon!

Your student's back to school forms are now available online. You will need to log into your Skyward Family Access Account and check this important task off your list. We want to make sure we have an accurate list of students returning to school. We ask that parents complete their annual back-to-school forms online by August 15, 2018. If forms are not completed by then, your student may or may not be listed on the traditional class list which is posted on the school windows on Thursday, August 16, 2018 after 3:00 p.m. This process will ensure a valid class list for each grade. If you are having trouble logging into your Skyward account, please call the front office at 281-284-5900.


Directions for Verifying:

Log into Skyward

Click on Back to School Forms tab

Complete and submit every form. If one is left blank, it will not let you complete verification. Look for the green check, which will tell you that the form is complete. Please pay close attention to your emergency contacts. If you have family members or friends who may need to pick up your child, you will need to make sure they are on the list.
