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 students 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 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. Assigned building dates will be emailed to district families in the spring prior to registration opening.

If you encounter issues during this process, please email enrollment@waukeeschools.org, and one of our Enrollment Services staff will be able to assist you.
