New Student Registration
Parents will need to furnish the following information:
The following are required documents:
Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB);
Official Birth Certificate;
Current School Year (dated 2020 or later) Immunization Record;
Guardian Documentation (if applicable);
Social Security Card (for High School);
Proof of Physical Address (for High School);
Withdrawal from previous school;
Last report card showing promotion;
Official Transcripts (High School);
Copy of Promotion Certificate (High School - Incoming Freshman);
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.
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.
We will no longer be accepting handwritten immunization. Immunizations must be validated each school year (dated 2020 or later).
Parents of children without complete immunization records will be allowed to pick up registration materials, but will not be able to officially register their child until all immunizations are complete.
HIB (Haemophilus Influenzae Type B) - 4 doses required
Questions regarding immunization, please contact our School Nurse at 928-672-3500 ext 1005.
