NEWS/ANNOUNCEMENTS
ONLINE REGISTRATION AND NEW PARENT PORTAL
08/03/2020

ATTENTION:
Sands Parents/ Guardians,
We are pleased to announce that we have made the move to Online Registration for New and Returning Mustang Students. Log onto Parent Portal here,  using the log in you created. Complete the forms and verify all the information is correct for your student, make changes as needed and save. Jr/ High please print and complete the Drug testing form or (opt out) and return to Mr. Morrow at the beginning of school. This process also takes the place of all the 1st day forms we send home.
IF you do not see “Registration” pop up then you will need to email Mrs. Henderson shenderson@esc17.net with the email address you used to create your Parent Portal account as soon as possible so that she may verify your account and you can begin the process.
**New student registration please compete the registration and forms and submit. I will then contact you with a passcode and then you may finish registering your student. I will need proof of residency/ or approved transfer agreement prior to your acceptance.
Please complete this process prior to August 10, 2020.
Please contact the office of Mrs. Henderson if you have any further questions. 432.353.4888

Thank you,
Susan Henderson, Registrar
SANDS CISD
