2022-2023 NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT
Bring the following items when picking up an enrollment packet:
**Original Birth Certificate (courthouse issued)

IMPORTANT REMINDER TO PARENTS
Elementary Parents — Remember when you pick up your child in a vehicle you must use the parking lot pick-up process. Students using the “walker door” should live in the neighborhoods surrounding the elementary school and walk (not catch a ride to avoid the pickup lane) to their homes at the end of the school day. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.
