2016-2017 School Year

The 2016-2017 academic calendar has been adjusted to standardize a 430 minute day throughout the school district, as mandated by HB 2610, which will add 10 minutes to each school day. As a result of the additional 10 minutes, RRISD students and staff will not have to make up the scheduled “bad weather days” if the district closes for any reason.

The following school day time adjustments are as follows:

Pre-Kindergarten: 7:40 to 11:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
Elementary School: 7:40 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.,

Additionally, the adjusted schedule reduces early release days to three days. Elementary school and middle school early release days will occur September 28, October 26 and April 5. Pre-kindergarten will be released at 9:50 a.m. for the morning class and 12 p.m. for the afternoon class. Elementary schools will be dismissed at 12 p.m..

3 Early Release Days this year. Students released at 12:00

September 28th
October 26th
April 5th

volunteer 2Volunteers are required to re-register each year so that a new background check can be run. This is done for the safety of our students.  Once a person registers to volunteer, there is a three day to one-week turn-around before they are added to the Raptor system.

More information can be found on the RRISD Volunteer webpage here.
If you plan to be a Watch D.O.G., go on a field trip, volunteer in the classroom, or work with students, you must complete the online application AND receive approval. Online Volunteer Application.

  1. Please complete entire form.
