Update Student Contact Information
As our district prepares to provide necessary services for our students, Wharton ISD is asking for your assistance. Flooding and fires have displaced many of our students. Therefore, in order to keep individuals informed on what is happening in our district, and to ensure that services, including transportation, are in place for the new school year, we ask that you please contact your child's campus to update necessary contact information including your current phone number, mailing address and email address. Also, please let the campus know if your child is in need of assistance with school supplies. Wharton ISD understands that by working together we will have a wonderfully successful year.
