Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please read this important information in its entirety. School registration will take place in April-May 2020 for the 2020-2021 school year. Online registration is due on May 15, 2020. Additionally, parents of students entering Kindergarten, 3rd, and 6th grades are required to submit 2 proofs of residency to the school office before your registration can be approved. Please see this information for Homeless Children’s Rights.

1. Online Registration Process: Due Friday, May 15, 2020

  • You will receive an email from PowerSchool Enrollment with details on how to log in and complete registration for each of your children. The online registration process must be done for each child, each year. Here are a couple of tips:
    • PowerSchool Enrollment recommends that one parent/guardian in each family create an account and register all children with that same account.
    • You will receive a separate email for each child. Please use the child specific link in each email, this will make the process MUCH faster!
    • Make sure you keep a record of your username and password because it can be used year after year for registration.
    • Registration does not have to be finished in one sitting, just make sure you Save and Close before you logout or close your browser.
    • If at all possible, complete registration on a computer (laptop or desktop) rather than a tablet or phone. You are welcome to stop by either school, during school hours, to complete your registration on one of our computers.
