RETURNING STUDENT REGISTRATION REMINDER:  Thanks to everyone who has completed the Returning Student Registration Form for your child(ren).  This information MUST be completed each year for students regardless of educational program - face to face or cyber - please reference emails sent earlier for the link or contact dholmes@palisd.org for a needed snapcode,  It is helpful if you put “snapcode” in the subject line.

New students who entered PSD this year do NOT need to complete this form; it was a part of the registration process for your child.

NOTE:  When making changes to your child(ren)’s emergency contact section, you must REMOVE and RE-ENTER the information for the emergency contact.  Also, please only list “emergency contacts” in that section - do not include parents/guardians who are already listed in another section of the form.  Sorry for the confusion this year, several software changes between the Returning Student Registration Form and PowerSchool (our student information system) have made this year a little more tricky.  Thanks for your patience and support.

STARTING OCTOBER 16TH, WE WILL BEGIN TO COMMUNICATE USING UPDATED STUDENT INFORMATION ONLY!  This is a system change between our student information system and our communications system.  If you have NOT completed your Returning Student Registration Form, you will NOT be able to receive communications from our district as a result of a software update between the two systems. this update will affect ALL communications from the district and buildings.  Please complete your Returning Student Registration Form today!
Problems? Please contact Donna Holmes at 610-847-5131, ext. 2401
