  • Middle school enrollment information for 5th grade

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    It is that time of year that ALL 5th graders and ALL 8th graders are asked to provide current proof of residency to your school registrar. Even if there are no changes, we ask for you to please submit current proof. We update our records and need your prompt response. Below is a list of items that are requested for proof. You may send them with your trustworthy student if you wish.

    Most all rising 6th & 9th grade students have put in course requests for their upcoming middle/high school, however your student will not be given a schedule unless your current proof of residence has been submitted no later than April 28th. To ensure requested courses, the sooner the better to show your proof.  Regardless if your student is going to your zoned school or reassigned to another school, schedules will not be given. If you have any questions, you may ask the registrar at your current 5th or 8th grade school.

    Reasonable proof of residence must include one (1) item from each of the following categories:

    Category 1

    broker's or attorney's statement of parents' purchase of residence, a mortgage statement or deed, properly executed lease/rental agreement, property tax record, or current homestead exemption card.

    Category 2

    driver's license/ID card, home insurance bill, vehicle registration, electric deposit payment receipt or current utility bill dated within thirty (30) days, bottom portion, showing name and service address.

    Thank you!
