Your online portion of your registration for next year is due today, Friday, May 18.  Please be sure and complete this very important portion of the registration process.  The information we get from the registration process helps us determine how many teachers we need for each grade level for next year.  IF YOU ARE NOT RETURNING NEXT YEAR, PLEASE SEND BACK THE PAPER FORM YOU RECEIVED IN THE MAIL WITH YOUR SIGNATURE AND THE “NOT RETURNING” BOX CHECKED.  Your child will not be placed in a class or on a bus route until the online registration is complete.
