Q: If my children are going to the same school as last year, do I need to register them?
A: Yes. Each school will have registration dates and times. You will need to register your children so the school knows they are coming, to update your contact information and to get your children's teacher information and/or class schedules.

A: You do not need to re-enroll you students returning to schools they attended last year. As mentioned above, you will need to complete the registration process (see previous question).
