Appointments are absolutely required from June 1st through the end of the first week of each school year. If you are registering for your student(s) to begin after a holiday or the first day of school, appointments are also critical. Walk-ins will be seen during other times as time becomes available between scheduled appointments.
You should come to your appointment with all required documents.
After registering with Central Registration during the school year, parents/guardians and students will visit the assigned school to enroll and obtain class assignments, schedules and other information unique to the school. The family must present the unopened packet of forms given at Central Registration. Otherwise, the student cannot be enrolled. Central Registration does not maintain copies of completed forms and documents. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to transport these documents.
