Celina ISD Back to School 2021-22
Students living in Cambridge Crossing attend Celina Primary for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, Lykins Elementary for grades 1-5, Celina 6th Grade Center, Celina Junior High School for grades 7-8, and Celina High School for grades 9-12.
Lykins Elementary will hold its Meet the Teacher night on Aug. 16 from 5-7 p.m. To help manage the number of visitors, students with last names A-L will have the chance to meet their teacher from 5-6 p.m. and students with last names M-Z will go from 6-7p.m.
Celina ISD middle school students can meet their teachers on Aug. 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. The come-and-go event begins with picking up student schedules. Sixth graders will be in the 6th Grade Gym, seventh graders in the 7th/8th cafeteria, and eighth graders in the 7th/8th gym.
Options to Repeat a Course or Grade
This year, Celina ISD parents have the option to decide if their children should repeat a grade or retake a high school course for the upcoming school year. Following the challenges of virtual learning during the 2020-21 school year, students in grades 4-8 can repeat a grade while high school students have the option to repeat a course that they were enrolled in during the 2020-21 school year.
According to the TEA website, parents who choose to make the change must make a request in writing to their school principal before the start of the school year, which for Celina ISD is Aug. 18. The TEA has provided a form on its website for parents to use.
