What’s Happening

Gattis Parents and/or Guardians,

We are partnering with BrightBytes, an educational data analytics company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use for learning. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in our questionnaire.

Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in our students’ lives. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy and they will help your child’s school choose the right technology for their classrooms. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

The last day to complete this questionnaire is Monday, October 10, 2016.

Thank you for taking part in this important initiative!



Healthy Schools, in cooperation with Round Rock ISD will be providing flu vaccination sat Gattis Elementary for students on October 5th. The process for your student to receive their flu shot is very simple. All you have to do is fill out and sign the consent form that was sent home with your child. Forms must be received before 10:45 on the 5th. You can also access a consent form from the Gattis Elementary Nurses Website or If you have any questions please call Nurse Teresa at 512-428-2009.

Flu Consent Forms


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..

Mark Your Calendars!

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

  • September 28th
  • October 26th
  • April 5th

REMINDER: School hours are 7:40- ­2:50 PM this year.

Students will be counted tardy if they are not in their classroom at 7:40. (exceptions are made forlate bus arrivals and extreme weather)


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.
