The first day of school is still a month away, but online registration opened this week for returning Pearland ISD students.
Returning students should visit www.pearlandisd.org/back2school. Students new to the district should visit www.pearlandisd.org/enrollment. During registration dates/times, campuses will provide computers for parents without Internet access. Supply lists, school hours, bus and lunch information for the coming school year is also available online.
Teachers report to campuses by Aug. 15, and the first day of school is scheduled Monday, Aug. 22.
The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has announced this year’s sales tax holiday weekend is Aug. 5 through 7. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.
