Emergency Form 2017-18

If you are new to our school, please complete a registration form and either email it or drop it off at our school office.  If your family is returning, either send us the information that has changed or let us know that all your information is okay as we have it except for the new grade of your child(ren).

Class assignments will be made on a first come – first served basis.  Please note that while we will make every effort to accommodate everyone’s first choice, we also need to honor our commitment to maintain class sizes that will ensure the best possible education for all of our children.  Therefore, we cannot guarantee that every child will be assigned the day that you choose.  We will make every effort to keep children in the same family on the same day if that is what you request.
