Aledo ISD COVID-19 Tracking
The Aledo PTO has organized a Back to School Photo Opp at all campuses since we are limiting visitors and parents will not have the opportunity to come onto campus, including on the first day of school. Outside of each school from August 13-17, there will be a photo opp to take pictures of your Bearcats. The Aledo PTO has also organized a water bottle drive at each photo opp where you can donate new, reusable water bottles to be distributed for students in need at each campus. Please share your Back to School Photo Opp pictures on social media, tag the Aledo ISD and use the hashtag #BearcatsBestStart!
Schedule information is coming soon! The district will send information to secondary parents (grades 6-12) soon letting them know when schedules are ready to view and how to access them.

Meals for Bearcats
The Aledo ISD will be providing meal options for full-time remote-learning students as well as in-person learning students during the hybrid schedule on their remote-learning days beginning on Tuesday, August 18. Meals will be charged to the student’s meal account according to their payment status at the free, reduced or paid meal price. Meals for either three or five days can be picked up from 7-9 a.m. on Tuesdays at either McCall Elementary or the Aledo ISD Police and Technology building (across from Coder Elementary). View complete Meals for Bearcats information here.
Learning Management System
All students in 3rd through 12th grade will use Canvas, whether virtual or in person. We have information on how to login to Launchpad - our single sign on site for students - as well as how to set up a parent observer account in Canvas on our Technology Resources page of the Return to Learn website. Also on that page, you’ll find information on the Remind app, a teacher-parent communication tool used by the district.
