NEW Student Registration During COVID-19

Register Online: You can electronically complete student enrollment forms and upload required documents through the K-12 online registration system (OLR). The system is secure and user-friendly, which allows the District to verify all student and parent/guardian demographics and health information for the new school year. Registration may be completed using a computer/laptop or a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, iPad). The OLR system will be available in nine languages: Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, Albanian, French, Khmer, Russian, and Vietnamese. All applications received that indicate the student has an English Language Learning need will be handled exclusively by the Multilingual Assessment Center.

Register Over the Phone: You can contact the school directly to complete the registration process over the phone with the secretary. School secretaries will complete the online application on behalf of the parent/guardian based on the information provided.

Register In-Person: The Office of Student Enrollment and Placement will offer in-person registration services by appointment only for families unable to register online or by phone. In-person registration will be available twice a week from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Education Center.
