Last Reminder | Proof of Residency Requirements Due Oct. 31

Starting this school year, our buildings are asking every current family to provide updated proof of residency to the school that serves the oldest child in the family. The documents will be collected through Oct. 31. Please send your proof of residency to the email address associated with the school your oldest child attends: Residency Proof Email Addresses by Building.

New enrollments will be required to provide full proof of residency documentation.


If you have already provided residency proof, thank you! Please contact your school's secretary or registrar for further information.
