    Important Notes

    • Only a parent/guardian living in the District and at the same residence as the student may enroll the student. 
    • Please provide accurate information. Inaccurate information could place you in jeopardy of legal action.
    • Submitting pre-registration information does not guarantee your student has met the requirements for admittance.
