Thank you for your patience as we navigate through this unique situation.

Returning K-8 students will not need to submit a yearly enrollment application and will automatically roll over.  We ask that parents call in or login to their parent portal with any changes to their household contact information.  

Our school nurse will notify parents of pending immunization and will halt student's return until updated.

However, if you are a guardian to a student and your guardianship has expired, please submit a current guardianship/Power of Attorney form.  We do provide our 'School Use' only Power Of Attorney Form


Purpose of the Power of Attorney Form: 

You agree to act as the responsible party for the child in school. You will be taking over the duties and obligations the student's parent would normally have for school purposes only. The form gives the school a responsible party (you) to contact with any questions about the child, or to send information home about the child. The school will have the right to ask you questions to make sure you meet the conditions set out in the form.

Parents will need to furnish the following information:

The following are required documents:

  • Enrollment Application;

  • Official Birth Certificate;
  • Guardian Documentation (if applicable);

Additional documents:
