Re-enrollment Window: January 10-28
On Friday, January 7, parents of current K-4 students should have received a notification from Parent Square with their child(ren)'s Student ID. You will need this ID in order to re-enroll. We will be using a new enrollment system called SchoolMint. Parents will need to set up an account with their student ID in order to re-enroll.
During the week of January 10, parents of current K-4 students will receive an email from ResponsiveEd with a link to re-enroll for the 2022-2023 school year. The link will take parents to SchoolMint for parents to set up an account and re-enroll their students. Re-enrollment will last a little over two weeks this year and will close on January 28. Please do not procrastinate or your child will be in danger of losing his/her seat.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS OF 5TH GRADERS: Parents of DCA Fifth Graders will NOT re-enroll at this time. Instead, fifth graders who plan to transfer to another RES school will need to submit a paper Transfer Request through the DCA front office. You may request a transfer in person through Mrs. Garretson. (Please see information below about fifth grade transfer requests.)
Transfer Requests for Next Year
Parents of K-4 students who wish to request a transfer request to a different RES school for the 2022-2023 school year may do so during the re-enrollment window, January 10-28. All K-4 students MUST FIRST RE-ENROLL at Denton Classical before requesting the transfer. Transfer Request Forms are in the school office; please see Mrs. Garretson
*** FIFTH GRADE STUDENTS...
Unfortunately, there is no continuing grade at Denton Classical for our fifth graders. Founders Classical Academy of Corinth holds a guaranteed sixth grade seat for each of Denton Classical's fifth graders who wish to transfer to Corinth. (Parents may also apply for a transfer to a different RES school, but seats are not guaranteed.) NOTE: ONLY A TRANSFER REQUEST IS REQUIRED AT THIS TIME. Denton's fifth graders will NOT be sent a re-enrollment link during the re-enrollment window. Also, parents should NOT submit an application for admission to another RES school (it will be discarded). See Mrs. Garretson BEFORE January 28 to complete a transfer request.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Garretson.

Generally, students eat outside when the weather is nice. This is the best time to enjoy lunch with your student and their friends.
During inclement weather, students eat in their classrooms. Since classroom space is limited, there will be a designated alternate area in the main building for parents to eat with their students during inclement weather.
