Please read through steps 1-3 before starting. Registration opens February 1st through February 28th.
Registration is open throughout the school year but parents are strongly encouraged to register their K-5th grade students as soon as possible to help ensure placement in their neighborhood school. The sooner a student is registered, the higher the probability of them attending their boundary school. Due to capacity limitations, those who wait too long may be placed in a different school and required to wait until the following year to be enrolled in their boundary school.
The registration process should take approximately 20-30 minutes per student for a new registration. It is recommended to collect the following information prior to beginning the online registration process so you can easily upload it to the applicable locations.
