Is your child attending Burnet CISD? What you need to know

BURNET — Well, Burnet Bulldogs, the first day of school on Monday, Aug. 21, is fast approaching, but before you head to class, there are a few things you should know, or do, prior to the big day.


If your child is new to the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District, you need to register them for the upcoming school year. New student registration is 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. Thursday-Friday, Aug. 10-11 at the following campuses:

  • Burnet Middle School, 1401 Main St. in Burnet
  • R.J. Richey Elementary School, 500 E. Graves St. in Burnet
  • Shady Grove Elementary School, 111 Shady Grove Road in Burnet
  • Bertram Elementary School, 315 Main St. in Bertram

Parents need to bring their identification and proof of address as well as their child’s birth certificate, Social Security card, and current vaccination record. If their child is enrolling in pre-kindergarten, proof of income is needed.


These events are so parents and students can meet their teachers, check out their classrooms, and drop off school supplies. Parents: This is also a perfect opportunity to learn the best ways to keep open a line of communication with your child’s teacher and campus faculty.
