  • Students will pick up schedules, verify contact information, check out iPads, books and get your picture taken for an ASB card.

  • ASB card will be required to attend any school event.

  • Registration will take place outside, along the north side, and south side of the building, similar to last Fall’s process. This will be by grade-level and then alphabetically by last name. Start at the exterior by the preschool playground.

  • If you have multiple students, you can come at one time, but be aware that Change Arena is strictly by the class times listed below so that upper classes have the first choice of changes
