RISD’s at-home learning website is now live. Please visit www.risd.org/athomelearning to access plans and activities that parents and students can use to continue learning from home. The site is organized by grade level with resources for elementary students and content for secondary students. There are also parent resources to support the transition to at-home learning, including suggestions on setting up a schedule, supporting mental health and well-being, and special education support.

Each teacher will provide parents and/or students with expectations and direction to use the resources on this site. Parents are encouraged to explore the lessons and resources specific to their children. Please contact your child’s teacher with questions about how the resources on this site fit in with at-home learning for students.

While teachers and principals will be the first line of guidance and support for students, an At-Home Hotline is set up that students or parents can call at 469-593-0286 for back-up guidance and assistance.

If a student or parent is in need of counseling support, they should contact their school counselor first. In addition, the Counseling Helpline is a resource for RISD families at 469-593-7472.  Please leave a message with your name, school, and the type of help needed, and a counselor will call you back within 24 hours. Of course, in the event of an emergency, please call 911 right away.

Parents of students in grades K-12 who do not have a student device may contact their campus administration or campus technical assistant to have them request a device. Once the campus enters the request, the RISD Technology Help Desk will contact the parent with a pickup time. Parents who need technical support for a district issued device only, can call or email the RISD Help Desk at 469-593-4357 or helpdesk@risd.org.   Please note, the RISD Helpdesk cannot troubleshoot problems with personally owned devices or home Internet connectivity.

As always, for the latest information about COVID-19's impact on RISD schools, please visit www.risd.org/cv19.

 
Student Meals - updated April 6

Any child 18 or under can get free to-go meals from designated RISD schools and apartment complexes. Both a breakfast and a lunch will be provided at the same time so that students only need to make one trip a day to pick up meals.

Beginning with meal pickups on Monday, April 6, new rules from the Texas Department of Agriculture require that parents picking up free meals for children, without the children present, must bring proof of the children that the meals are for.

Acceptable proof includes a school-issued student ID, report card, birth certificate, or a district verification message emailed to all RISD parents April 1. Please note that proof is not required when children come with a parent to a meal pickup location. Any child 18 or under can receive meals at a meal pickup location.

Children not enrolled in RISD can be provided meals, but documentation for each child must be provided for any child not present. This can be the child’s birth certificate, a report card or a school ID (from a different school district).

Census Extended to August 14
Richardson ISD is providing information to educate, encourage and engage our school community about the 2020 Census, and we encourage your participation.

The Census Bureau has extended the deadline to respond to the questionnaire to August 14. RISD will keep its Census website up through the extension.

The Census has only 10 questions and is available in 13 languages other than English. And, for the first time, you can respond by mail, phone or online. By responding to the 2020 Census now, you will have done your part to ensure your community gets its fair share of federal funding and representation in Congress.

Enroll Now for the Upcoming 2020-2021 School Year
Students currently enrolled and returning to RISD next school year will need a unique code, called a Snapcode, for each returning student in order to enroll. Snapcodes and specific enrollment information were sent home to parents by each RISD school the week of February 17 as follows:

  • Current elementary students – take home packets
  • Current junior high and high school students – U.S. mail
  • All current students – message to current primary contact email address on file with child’s school

If you have not received enrollment information and a snapcode from your child’s school, please contact your child’s current school. Please note that students new to RISD will not require a snapcode to enroll for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.

All enrollment for the upcoming 2020-21 school year must be completed online – there are no paper forms to complete.

To enroll online, or for more information about online enrollment for the upcoming 2020-21 school year, please visit RISD’s online enrollment site.
