Registration Information


Returning student registration period ended August 2, 2022 for the 2022-23 school year. Please check back in late Spring 2023 for information on registration for the 2023-24 school year.

New/Transfer Students

2022-2023 School Year:
If you are a new or transfer student to the district or are a returning student who was not enrolled in the 2021-2022 school year, you will need to fill out the New Student Registration Form.
2023-2024 School Year:

Please fill out the Pre-registration form if you are new to the district for the 2024 school year. This form should be used by new kindergarten students, students transferring  from Sacred Heart or St Anthony, or if you know that your student will be attending Unit 40 in the 2024 school year and have not been enrolled with Unit 40 previously.

Pre-Registered Students (such as Kindergarten)

The following information usually pertains to new preschool or kindergarten parents that attended preschool roundup or kindergarten preview. If you have already completed pre-registration you will receive an email to set up a Campus Parent Portal account and to complete registration when it opens July 7th.  Please note that if you already have an existing Campus Parent Portal account because you have other students in the district, you will not receive an email to set up an account- your preregistered student should appear in your existing portal.
