We are excited to use Aeries Online Enrollment, an online student registration system, to support our parents with the online student registration process. Aeries Online Enrollment reduces the time parents/guardians spend completing required school forms for one or more children and can be accessed via a computer or through a smartphone. For parents/guardians who do not have computer, online or smartphone access, a device is available in each school's main office for you to use for student enrollment purposes.
Registration information and forms are available on our website and through Aeries Online Enrollment. Once completed, these forms will need to be uploaded into your Aeries Online Enrollment account or submitted to the school's office. This information and related forms are available for downloading and printing from the district website as well.
To help ensure that the enrollment process for your child goes as smoothly as possible, please read the following guidelines carefully:

What Must I Have Ready for Online Registration?
Parents/legal guardians (granted through the court system) or a non-parent seeking to enroll a student in any of the schools within the district should be prepared to scan or take quality digital pictures of several documents in order to upload the information into Aeries Online Enrollment in order to complete your child's school registration.
If the person enrolling the student is not the student’s parent/legal guardian, the school will require the enrolling person to fully complete a caregiver's affidavit form found within Aeries to be considered by the superintendent for approval.
There are THREE (3) main documents required of students prior to being enrolled in the District. To help ensure that the enrollment process for your child goes as smoothly as possible, please refer to the following items:

All students are required to have their vaccinations up to date before enrolling in school, unless exempt, as provided by law.
