Student Registration

New this year - Online Registration! 

We are excited to announce online registration for our families this year. This is a pilot program for approximately 10 schools in Hamilton County.

To minimize your wait times at the school, please click on the following link to access the online process:

The official registration events for this year have passed, but please bring your required paperwork and your child on August 10th at 8AM to finish registering AND place your child in his/her new class.

We will have all your documents ready to sign once your proofs of residence have been approved. Parents will sign and submit papers then collect additional school information for the upcoming year.

If you are unable to complete the online form in advance, please know that you will have to complete this information on-site. The online registration form takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Once complete, the parent/guardian will have to move to a printing station for documents and then submission.


Required Paperwork:

1.    Two (2) Proofs of Residency

ALL STUDENTS are required to show (2) different proofs of residency for their zoned school when registering.  Proof of residency is a current (within the last 30-60 days) utility bill - electric, gas, or water - with the parent's name and address printed on it.  If parents have not been living at the residence long enough to have a utility bill, a contract or lease on a house or apartment will be accepted.  Agency, government or court documentation will also be accepted. 

2.   Immunization Records and Physical Examination Records

To get a Tennessee Health Card School Immunization Certificate, parents should contact their child's doctor and schedule an appointment for a kindergarten physical.  At the time of the physical, the health card Tennessee School Immunization Certificate will be issued.

If a student and his/her custodial parent/guardian are living with another family in the Red Bank Elementary school zone, both families must be present to sign a notarized Affidavit of Housing. Failure to provide accurate information could interrupt your child’s enrollment process. The supporting family member or representative must provide two (2) different proofs of current address to be approved for that zone. Acceptable documents are current electric, water, gas, or cable bills within the last 30-60 days, a current lease or mortgage, and Agency or court documentation. In the case of an agency, a representative must mail or fax a letter to the Student Services Office verifying the student/parent’s residence.
