Six ways for students and families to prepare for the upcoming school year:

  1. Not receiving emails from your school yet? Contact your school’s main office today. See school links & important resources at the bottom of page.

  2.  Did you know applying for Educational Benefits is MORE than just free meals? Meals are no longer free for all families, so we encourage ALL families, regardless of income, to apply today. Help your school qualify for critical education funds and discounts. Qualifying families may also receive discounted fees for band instruments, textbooks, athletics, and more!

  3.  Confirm your student's transportation. Bus Cards will be mailed out August 25. If you do not receive a card by Monday, August 29, please call transportation at 651-403-8320 or email transportation@isd197.org

  4. Get involved! Join your school's PTA, connect with our Cultural Liaisons,  join the Parent Academy, or volunteer at your child’s school this school year! And remember to follow your school on social media. See social media tab at bottom of page.

  5. Stay connected! Check your school’s calendar on your school website to stay on top of performances, breaks and conferences. School webpage links & important resources below.

  6. ​Look for Peachjar flyers! Parents automatically receive district-approved flyers sent directly to your email! See current District flyers here & find your school's flyer on your school website under "Stay Connected".
