Frequently Asked Questions
When will I find out my child’s class placement?
Campuses will post the day and time families can find out their child’s teacher. Usually it is a few days before the first day of school.
When can we meet the teacher and visit the school?
All elementary schools host an opportunity for students and their families to visit the campus and meet the teacher before the first day of school. These may be called Lemonade Social, Muffin Morning, or Bobcat Welcome. Please check your campus’s website for campus-specific information.
Additionally, each campus hosts a parents-only Back to School meeting. Please check your campus’s website for information.
How will I receive important school information?
Your campus’s website is a clearinghouse of great information, including upcoming events. You will also receive district and campus emails through Skyward. Once class lists are known, you will receive class newsletters from your child’s teacher. Visit your campus’s Booster Club or PTO page to sign up for their announcements.
How do I purchase school supplies?
Campus Booster Clubs and PTOs offer school supply kits for pre-order and are a convenient way to take care of school supplies. School supply lists are available on each campus’s website. Headphones and a stylus are not included in school supply kits and will need to be purchased separately. When choosing headphones, the simpler, the better. Please do not send earbuds, Bluetooth headphones, headphones, with volume control, or headphones that require batteries.
How do I get information on bus transportation? How do I let my child’s teacher know my child’s dismissal mode each day?
Parents can visit: https://www.eanesisd.net/dept/trans and click on “Bus Routes” to type in their address and determine bus routes, bus names and pickup/drop off times. Please note: Transportation will build and adjust routes up until the week before school starts. Please look for announcements from Transportation regarding route completion. Campus Registrars will reach out to NEW families and instruct them on how to register for the Smart Tag Portal and will be able to select a “default dismissal” for their child, which will tell the teacher who the child will be dismissed each day (car rider line, bus, after school care.) Learn more about Smart Tag.
What if my child will be absent from school?
If your child is ill or out for any reason, enter the absence into the Smart Tag Portal. Be sure to report any communicable diseases.

What about school lunches?
Eanes Child Nutrition provides lunch in each campus’s cafeteria. Your child will have a lunch account. You may put money in your child’s lunch account through Skyward Family Access or send a check payable to Eanes Child Nutrition with your child’s student ID number to your campus’s front office for deposit into their lunch account. Contact the manager of your campus’s cafeteria if you would like to put any restriction on what your child can purchase in the cafeteria. Visit the District Child Nutrition page to learn more.
How can I volunteer?
We encourage parent participation and have many opportunities to volunteer. Please look for sign up information at your campus, with your child’s teacher, and with your school’s Booster Club/PTO at back to school events.
