• We are excited about getting ready for the first day of school! We created a one-stop shop for all your frequently asked questions concerning the first day of school!

    Open House
    Each campus will host an Open House and/or Meet The Teacher: https://www.judsonisd.org/openhouse2023


    Registration for the 2023-2024 school year IS OPEN in our NEW registration portal! Please remember that all students, even those who were enrolled in a Judson ISD school last year, must complete the registration process. For questions about registration, contact the registrars at each campus.

    JISD Block Party
    Join us on August 1 as over 100 jungle-inspired vendors unite to ignite excitement and equip our students, families, and staff for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year! They'll offer FREE resources and services, courtesy of our schools, departments, and educational & business community partners. From immunizations to school supplies, you will find it all! Click here for more information.

    Visiting Campuses
    This school year, a photo ID will be required when visiting any Judson ISD campus. Please understand that if you cannot present a photo ID, you will not be allowed on campus.

    Verification of Visitors:

    • Visitors will be verified during events where students are accompanied by their families, i.e., Open House, Meet the Teacher, Family Nights, etc. The receiving campus will use the visitors' photo identification, i.e., Driver’s License, Employee ID, Passport, State Issued ID Card, Military ID, etc., to verify that the visitor is, in fact, listed as a guardian/emergency contact in Skyward/Frontline.
    • If the visitor is not listed in Skyward, the visitor has two choices; they may either go through the Raptor process or wait outside and not attend the event.


    Raptor Process for Visitors:

    • Anytime students are in the building during regular school hours, ALL VISITORS are required to go through the Raptor process. This would include but is not limited to parent conferences, lunch visits, awards ceremonies, Field Day, or Book Fairs. Just as the Verification of Visitors process, this requires a photo identification.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your campus secretary or the Director of Safety and Security, Jesus Hernandez, at jehernandez@judsonisd.org. We appreciate your support in our mission to ensure campus safety.

    School Safety
    We are committed to ensuring that everyone goes home safe! Student and staff safety is of paramount concern at Judson ISD. Because a student's well-being is a pre-requisite before education can begin, Judson ISD's Department of Safety and Security works in coordination with the Judson ISD Police Department, the Department of Student and Family Support Services, local law enforcement and first responders to ensure the health and safety of all of our students and staff. Please browse the programs and services below for more information on what Judson ISD is doing to guard our students and their education.

    School Supplies
    In an effort to support our Judson ISD families, we will be providing all students enrolled in a JISD elementary campus for the 2023-2024 school year with their school supplies ... for FREE!  This is possible due to federal funding available for this school year.  The school supplies will be delivered directly to campuses and provided to your child by their teacher on the first day of school. We ask that you please provide your child with a backpack to carry materials, but all school supplies will be provided by the school district free of charge.  We are so excited to be able to provide this support for the 2023-2024 school year, however, we cannot promise this will continue for future years as financial support depends on the availability of federal funds.

    Most secondary students will receive more information regarding supplies during the first week of school.

    Standard Response Protocols
    The Judson Independent School District partners with the I Love You Guys Foundation to use Standard Response Protocols (SRP). Local Law Enforcement Agencies, the Judson ISD Police Department, and the Department of Safety and Security use the SRP to ensure all processes are aligned and all language is similar when responding to emergency situations, whether it is at the campus or an alternate location.

    Most secondary students will receive more information regarding supplies during the first week of school.

    Judson ISD will not require students to have clear backpacks for the 2023-2024 school year.

    In-person attendance and engagement are vital to a student’s success in school.
    State law requires children to attend school each day when instruction is provided. This year, Judson ISD will not be providing any models of virtual learning. Families are encouraged to work directly with their child’s school if they foresee issues with attendance.

    Judson ISD Health Services would like to remind the community to get the required vaccines before school starts. State law requires proof of acceptable evidence of vaccination prior to entry, attendance, or transfer to a child-care facility or public or private elementary or secondary school in Texas.

    Dress Code/Student Code of Conduct
    Judson ISD has updated the student code of conduct.

    Free/Reduced priced lunch applications are now more important than ever.
    Click here to apply for free/reduced lunch. If you're unable to apply for free/reduced lunch, you can see the lunch prices here, along with information on how to access your student's lunch account, what a student will receive with their lunch, if they need a special diet and some facts about our Child Nutrition Department.

    Transportation requires ALL STUDENTS to be
    registered to ride a bus every school year. Registration will help identify who is riding a Judson ISD School Bus. It takes only a few minutes to register your child using Travel Tracker by TransACT!

    Judson ISD does not provide transportation for students who reside outside the campus they are originally zoned to or out-of-district transfers students.

    After School Care
    JISD Adventure Club is a program that includes homework time, mind-stimulating games, reading/quiet time, character and leadership-building activities, behavioral and etiquette skills, science centers, storytelling, music, art and crafts, board games, physical activities (games) and much, much, more. The Program Guidelines for Parents and Guardians explains the policies, procedures, and the program in full. The Adventure Club Program is available at 20 elementary locations throughout the district, proudly serving our PK4 through 6th-grade students. The program is open Monday - Friday with the exception of observed JISD school holidays. The JISD Adventure Club operates from the time of dismissal until 6 pm.

    Family Resources
    Judson ISD partners with different organizations to provide items and services for students and families in need. The district's students or families can contact their school counselor or social worker if they need assistance. Our goal in Judson ISD is to provide assistance to all of our students to ensure they have all items needed to start the school year and throughout the school year. The services we provide are as follows:

    • Vouchers are provided by our community partner, Greater Randolph Area Services Program, to shop in their thrift store for back-to-school clothes. They also have a food pantry available.
    • Communities in Schools provides backpacks and supplies for students participating in their program.
    • San Antonio Threads provides clothing for students.
    • The Salvation Army Shoe In program provides shoes for students.
    • The Assistance League of San Antonio provides clothing to 25 students at each of our elementary campuses.
