To help ensure that schools and students are well prepared for the first day of school, parents are encouraged to register their child(ren) online. The online registration process will allow parents to submit information directly to the district.

All continuing families will need to complete the returning student registration process to be prepared for the first day of school. Families will receive an email from Enrollment Services on their building’s assigned day with directions to enroll their returning student online. If families are unable to complete the returning student registration process on the assigned date, the registration link and portal will remain open until the process is complete.

The below timeline will be used to send returning student registration emails by building. If you encounter issues, please email, and one of our Enrollment Services staff will be able to assist you.


The district will begin sending directions on how to complete the online registration process for returning students to the primary email addresses around 10 a.m. on your building’s assigned registration day.
