Student Registration

Please use the attachment to find all the needed forms for registration.  We have them separated by “new students”, “all students”, and “optional” forms.  You may print the forms from home or stop by the school office to pick up a packet.

Free and Reduced Meals Forms can be found in the “optional” section, please get these forms completed ASAP and return to the school office for processing.  If you need help with these forms, Mrs. Schlafmann would be happy to assist you.

Tuesday, August 13th will be designated as our Registration Day where we encourage you to stop and pay lunch fees, activity fees, technology fees (7th grade and new students) and drop off forms.  The school office will be open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  If that day does not work for you, please stop by at your earliest convenience.  All forms and fees must be taken care of by Thursday, August 22nd at our Back-to-School Night.
