Registration- Beginning May 27, 2020

Registration this year will be completed online using our ActiveParent portal and will require the use of a student-specific registration code. These registration codes will be issued to the guardian when report cards are picked up at the campuses on May 27th-29th. The online registration portal will be opened for parent use on May 27th

Unfortunately, parents that attempted to register their students prior to the official opening of the portal on May 27th will have to re-complete the registration process due to the fact that the student-specific registration code must be used in order to verify guardianship to the ActiveParent account. We apologize for the inconvenience, but student safety is a top priority for our district.

The required registration documents and proofs of residency will be accepted both online during the registration process or in-person after June 8th.
