Incoming Kindergarten and Elementary Students - Grades K-5

  • For incoming kindergarten students, traditionally a Kindergarten Roundup takes place for each school wherein students and families come visit their classrooms, meet teachers and staff as they tour the building.  Principals will communicate details of opportunities for you to visit the school, or you may call the front office to inquire. 
  • For elementary students:
  • Click the Create Account button to setup an account for this enrollment portal. (This is not the same as the PowerSchool portal for viewing grades or for updating fall registration details.)
    • Once your account is created, you can use the Sign In section to get back in to complete the enrollment or to enroll another child.
    • Be sure to choose the correct school year when completing this form to indicate if the child is enrolling to start yet this school year or for the fall.
    • You will be asked to upload the documentation listed above while completing this form, or you can mail copies of those documents to the school separately.
  • After completing the form, the school office will verify age and residency. You will be contacted with confirmation or for missing documentation.
  • Once enrollment is complete, watch for details this Summer about in-person Registration dates, where families can pick up supplies, tour classrooms, and learn more about the school of enrollment.
