The 2019-2020 school year is officially underway at Melissa Schools. Now is a great time to learn more about how our schools communicate with families and how you as a parent or guardian can stay connected.

School Announcements & Alerts

Your child’s school, and the district, will send electronic communication (via Remind) to parents and guardians throughout the school year. Depending on your child’s grade level, this can include: general announcements, newsletters, critical alerts, attendance notifications, and gradebook updates.

In order to receive this communication, the contact information for your child’s primary guardian(s) must be up-to-date in the txConnect Parent Portal. Each household can have one primary guardian listed to receive electronic communication.

Log in to Parent Portal and visit the tabs titled ‘My Account’ and ‘Alerts’ to double-check that your name, email address, phone number, and alert settings are accurate.

If you have not yet registered your returning student in Parent Portal for the 2019-2020 school year, you can do so through Sept. 10, 2019.

Social Media

Each of our schools maintain an active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter. Families are encouraged to follow their child’s school on social media to see photo highlights, read school news, and for reminders about upcoming activities.

Below you will find links to the social media accounts for each school in Melissa ISD along with the official accounts for the district.
