Due to the high influx on emails and calls during this challenging start to a new school year, we are asking that you fill out this request form in order for us to better route your question or concern to the correct person. Thank you for your patience as we work hard to start the 2020-21 Reimagined School Year!

Deerpark MS Student Information Help Request Form 

The district form has closed. 

___________________________________________________________________

Make or change your choice for your student(s) to continue virtual learning or return to the classroom once our school doors open again. Use this form to choose the instructional setting for each student by Thursday, Aug. 6. If you are a parent/guardian of a Special Education student who is 18+, please select 12th grade for your students’ grade level for the 2020-2021 school year.

On Thursday, Aug. 20 every student is beginning the school year as a virtual learner. When it’s determined safe for students and staff, instruction can return to the classroom.

Your choice helps us plan resources and safely accommodate students. While we ask parents to commit for a grading period, we are aware circumstances change, and your student(s) is not locked into your decision.

A choice form will need to be completed for each student. The form asks for the parents/guardians name and contact information, preferred household language, student’s name, campus, incoming grade level, and student ID. After that, select if the student will continue virtual learning or switch to on-campus instruction once schools re-open, and if the student needs support with technology. Please help us support all families by only requesting a device if your household does not have an adequate supply.

The choice form is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.

This year is unlike any other in so many ways. There is not an official school supply checklist at this time. 

Here are the items that students MUST have to begin the school year: 

  • A device able to connect to the internet with webcam capabilities and access to Google and Schoology
  • Power cord
  • Notebook or paper
  • Writing utensils

Additional recommended items:

  • Headphones/earphones with microphone
  • A clear and quiet workplace
  • A timer to remember when your synchronous learning begins

Additional tips:

  • Speakers for those who may need a higher volume than the computer
  • Screen glasses for those affected by long screen viewing time
  • Additional monitors to be able to see the class and work on items at the same time
  • Translation apps for those needing translation
  • Device pick up instructions will be coming soon
  • Families must fill out the instructional choice (virtual or in-person) AND indicate “YES” if you will need a computer device and/or a hotspot
  • Families that selected YES and do NOT already have a device from the Spring will be contacted with details for the pick-up instruction at Deerpark Middle School
  • Devices are being handed out by campus and pick-up dates and instructions may differ
  • Please contact the campus ITS if your device needs change after completing the selection form or after the pick-up dates are complete: Karen_Searles@roundrockisd.org
