Online Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year

NEW Online Student Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year

  • The launch that was on Feb 3 is for new students only for the 2020-2021. This includes Kindergartners and new students in other grades.

  • The District is moving to online as the primary method of enrolling to increase convenience, efficiency and equity. It is our goal to have all new enrollments completed online. Online enrollment can be completed on any internet-enabled device. However, if a family is unable to do so, they will be able to access a laptop or other device at their neighborhood school. They will also be permitted to complete the paper enrollment forms if requested.

  • The online enrollment module is part of ParentVUE, so families will have the benefit of choosing their preferred language in the presentation of the prompts and data gathering. However, any text responses in this tool need to be in English.

  • Online enrollment will allow families to scan and upload copies of a variety of documents, including birth certificates, documents showing proof of residency, and immunization records. Synergy’s data privacy policies are vetted and secure, so there should be no concern about loss of sensitive data. However, you may bring in documentation if preferred.

Families can begin the process by visiting

Reminder- Specialists

Please remind your child to participate in the music, library and PE lessons each week! We are so fortunate to have amazing specialists that have worked hard to develop incredible lessons for the students!

Thank you- Mr. Collin, Ms. Lin, Mrs. Martin, Mr. Sullivan, Mrs. Weber, and Ms. Zager!

Parents- do you have a minute to thank a staff member?

Expressing gratitude can fill your cup and our staff member's cup. Positive connections between home and school foster mutual respect; in turn creating a rich learning environment. If you're interested in sharing a quick "thank you" with someone who is having a positive impact on your student, please email me at: with subject line: Gratitude for Staff
