Stay tuned for 2013-14 School Year Student Registration Information
All parents and guardians of new incoming and continuing students are required to attend school district registration, which is held in August. Parents/guardians of new students, incoming 4-year-old kindergarteners, incoming 5-year-old kindergarteners who were not in the district's 4-K program, incoming sixth graders and incoming ninth graders should bring student immunization records. Parents/guardians of new students, incoming 4-year-old kindergarteners and incoming 5-year-old kindergarteners who were not in the district's 4-K program should also bring along a student's birth certificate.
All parents/guardians should also bring along any new or updated emergency contact information they'd like the district to have on file for their child(ren). School fees will also be collected. Please see our fee page for fee information.
Registration of New Students
Parents with school-age children who are new to the community and those moving within the school district boundaries are encouraged to register at their child(ren)’s new school as soon as possible.
We require a birth certificate to verify the birth date and legal name of your child(ren). A recent report card from the last school attended is also helpful. Elementary students should also bring proof of residency and updated immunization records to registration.
A 4-year-old and 5-year-old kindergarten pre-registration is held each April for children who will be entering our kindergarten programs in the fall.
Students must be 4 years old on or before September 1 to be eligible for enrollment into 4-year-old kindergarten. There is no early admission option for 4-year-old kindergarten. Students must be 5 years old on or before September 1 to be eligible for enrollment into our 5-year-old kindergarten program. Early admission policy information for 5K can be requested from the building principal.
Parents or guardians with questions about registering their child(ren), or to find your child(ren)’s school, should contact the School Administration Center at (262) 728-2642.
School fees vary based on grade level. Also, student fees are assessed for such things as student gym uniforms, daily planners and parking passes. See our Student Fees page for more information.
Wisconsin law requires that all children entering school for the first time be immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B and varicella (DTP/DTaP/DT/Td, Tdap, Polio, Hep B, MMR, Var). Immunization requirements can be waived only if a signed health, personal conviction or religious exemption is filed with the school.
All district students, prior to entrance into kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades are strongly encouraged to have a report of a recent physical and dental examination on record in the school nurse’s office by October 1 of that year.
