2019-2020 Returning Student On-Line Registration

As we approach the end of this school year, we are happy to announce that students returning for the 2019-2020 school year will be able to register on-line between now and June 7th. While the registration forms themselves will be nearly identical to the on-line forms you completed for the current school year, the way in which you access those forms has changed slightly.

Getting Started  

To register, visit the Powerschool Parent Portal to enroll a child for the 2019-2020 school year. This is not the same username and password you used for registration last year. If you have never set up a Powerschool Parent Portal, then the access ID you will need is available from the office.

  1. Once you log-in to the Parent Portal,Select the returning student you wish to register (listed along the top).
    1. If one of your students is not listed in the blue bar across the top, you will need to add your additional students under the "Account Preferences" button in the left menu (pictured). This will require an "Access ID" which may be obtained from the office.
      Account Preferences Icon
  2. Select the “Returning Student Registration 2019-2020” icon in the left menu (pictured).
    1. Returning Student Registration Icon
  3. Enter the date of birth for the selected student.
  4. Continue to complete all of the ​required ​fields. The forms will not let you submit from the last page unless all required fields are completed. You must be able to click the green Submit button on the last page and proceed to the confirmation page in order for your registration to be complete.
  5. To register additional students, you will need to return to the Powerschool Parent Portal, select the desired student's name within the dark blue menu at the top of the screen, then go back to the “Returning Student Registration 2019-2020” icon in the left menu.

For additional instructions about the Parent Portal, you may click here, or you may contact your child’s school.
