Bus riders must be registered by August 8 to ensure they will have transportation for the first week of school! All families should register their students before the first day of school. Enrollment opened in mid-July. If you have not yet completed registration, you can do so by clicking here.

If your student is returning to SJSD, they will need their snap code. If you didn’t receive an email or letter with their snap code, please call our help desk at 671-4444 and we’ll be happy to help you. #WEareSJSD

School Meals
Don't forget the USDA has ended free meal waivers for all districts. If your chilld attends Benton, Bode, Central, Ellison, Field, Oak Grove, Pershing, Skaith, or the Early Learning Center you will need to add money to your student's lunch account or fill out the free and reduced lunch application. You can complete both by creating an account here. 

Students who attend Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools will not need to fill out an application. Those schools include Lafayette, Robidoux, Spring Garden, Truman, Carden Park, Coleman, Edison, Hosea, Hyde, Lindbergh, Mark Twain, Parkway, Pickett, and Webster. However, money can be added to their accounts for additional items. #SJSDB2S
