Important details about Registration

There is some important paperwork that must be submitted during Registration. Please make sure that you submit the Data Confirmation Page and the McKinney-Vento Form on your scheduled Registration day.

Additionally, all parents of 7th graders need to provide a copy of their student’s Tdap immunization if they have not already done so. You will not receive a schedule until your immunizations are current.  

Please be sure to print your Data Confirmation Page early!  Instructions on creating a Parent Portal Account and printing your Data Confirmation Page can be found in your registration packets. The hand-written Student Information Card is also available if needed.

If you have students in more than one grade, it is best to bring both students to the Registration on Wednesday, 8/14, in order to avoid having to wait in lines twice!
