Dear QISD families,


We are saddened to let you know that this summer, Rio Costilla Learning Academy sustained two break-ins, resulting in vandalism and theft.  The subsequent damage has resulted in the inability of opening the Rio Costilla school at this time. Until repairs are complete, we cannot move forward with any discussion of re-opening the school.  We continue to welcome all PreK-6 learners in our district at Alta Vista Elementary and Intermediate School, and we are very excited for the tremendous opportunities the 2021-2022 School Year has for our youngest students!

Please email or send a Team chat message to the school counselor to make your selections.

Questa Independent School District - Returning Student Registration



Dear Families,


We are excited to announce online Returning Student Registration for the upcoming school year! This process replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year. Your Returning Student Registration for returning students.



How do I get started?

Click this link:


What’s a snapcode?

By clicking on the link above, you will be asked for your child's snapcode. The snapcode is like a key to your child’s Returning Student Registration for the upcoming school year. You should receive a unique snapcode for each child. PLEASE CALL YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL TO RECEIVE THE SNAPCODES.


**Should I create an account? 

- If you’ve never completed an online Returning Student Registration, you should create an account. This allows you to securely save your work and come back at a later time if necessary. You can use your email address or cell phone number.

- If you already have an account, you can sign in and complete the form. (You should use the same account to complete forms for multiple children.)


**Do I have to answer all the questions? 

Questions marked with a red asterisk (*) are required.


**What if I make a mistake? 

If you would like to make a change, click on the underlined field or click “Previous” to return to a previous page.


**I’ve completed the form, now what? 

When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions.


**What if I have more than one student in the district? 

Do I need to do this for each child? Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one Returning Student Registration and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time. 


**I don’t know what a question is asking. 

You can contact Questa High school at (575) 586-1604 or Alta Vista School at (575) 586-0032 to ask any general questions about the form or the Returning Student Registration process.


**Help! I’m having technical difficulties.

For technical support, visit or click “Contact Us” from any form page.



Thank you!
