Students can be enrolled via a registration link on our district's website, app, and Facebook pages. We encourage parents/guardians to register online, including payment. All classroom fees, lock & agenda fees, and Chromebook insurance fees have been combined to one nominal fee. For most buildings, this has resulted in a reduced registration fee for families. Since registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be solely online, staff will be available to assist with online registration and payment via cash or check, on Thursday, August 6th in each building from 9am to 7pm. While registering your student in person, masks or face coverings will be required, and social distancing guidelines will be followed. In addition to online registration, please remember to fill out the Return-to-School Survey to let us know if your child(ren) will be attending in-person, remotely, or have chosen another option if you have not done so already.
