Registration will be considered complete when a parent/guardian has provided the required supporting documents (proof of address, birth certificate etc.) along with a fully completed AP336-1 Student Registration form. Submission of these documents may be via email or dropped off at our school.

Families with children already registered in the school district will be able to provide their identification documents electronically, instead of in person.

Families new to our school district may complete and submit their registration documents electronically, but they must submit all original supporting documents in person.

Once registration is received and complete, parents/guardians will receive a welcome email and instructions on additional required release forms.
