Whether your child is transferring to Round Rock ISD from another school district, changing schools within RRISD, or starting school for the first time, the information in this section can help you make the transistion a smooth one. Below you will find a brief overview.
Registration. If your child is new to RRISD, go to the assigned campus to register if you have not already done so. If you aren’t sure which school your child should attend, call (512) 464.5087 or look up your address online to locate your school. Call the individual campus to set up an appointment or to check hours for registration.

Class Schedules/Teacher Assignments. Each school has its own method for notifying students of class schedules and teacher assignments. There are generally times and dates scheduled for students and parents to go to the campus to receive information and meet teachers before classes start and for open house nights after school begins. Contact your school or PTA for more information.
Immunizations. Students must be up-to-date on all required immunizations before starting school and proof will be required at the time of enrollment. Free and reduced cost immunizations are available through a variety of local agencies. Parents or guardians must bring their children's immunization records. For more information, call RRISD Health Services at (512) 464.5127.

Bus Transportation. RRISD provides free bus service for students who live more than two miles from their assigned school and for students who live within two miles but along a route defined as "hazardous" to walkers or bike riders. Use the School & Bus Route Locator to find bus routes. Simply type in your home address to see the closest stops, pick-up and delivery times, and bus numbers. Transportation information will also be posted at the campuses the week before school begins.
School Times. Each campus may vary slightly in their start and end times but the hours for elementary schools in RRISD are generally 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., middle schools are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and high schools are 9:05 a.m. to 4:05 p.m. The staggered start times for each level allow the district to reduce transportation costs by using buses and drivers on multiple routes.
School Year Calendar The official calendar is available online in both web-based and paper versions.

School Supplies. Each teacher or school has individual supply requests so it’s best to get the list directly from the campus. Many campuses have posted their lists on their school home web pages. Pre-packaged school supplies are often available from the campus PTA. Supply lists are also available at many local retailers.

The costs for the basic lunch tray are $2.35 for secondary students, $2.10 for elementary meals. Breakfast is also available for $1.35, and students who bring their lunches may purchase milk or juice for $0.50.

Students receiving free or reduced price lunches must submit an application every year. Applications will be sent home with each student on the first day of school. Additional copies are available in the cafeterias throughout the school year. Students receiving free/reduced lunches last school year will continue to receive benefits for 30 days. If an application is not submitted and processed by that time, the student status will automatically be changed to paid. Please allow up to two weeks for application processing. During that time new applicants will continue to be paid students until processing is complete.
