New Student Registration Information

NSR

 

 

 

If you have a new student (PK-12th grade) to register with our district, registration must be completed in-person by the parent/legal guardian. Registration is completed on a Chromebook in the central office (201 W. McCabe Street) between the hours of 8:00 am-3:00 pm each business day. Per school board policy, we only register students who live within our school district. We do not accept anyone living outside of our district. 

Parents/guardians will need to bring these items for all students being registered:
1. Proof of residency -- this document must have the parent/guardian's name who is completing the registration and the address within our school district. Accepted examples include a City of Strafford water bill, electric bill, rental agreement, or mortgage agreement. 

2. Immunization records

3. Birth certificate

 

Below is a list of frequently asked questions the district has received in the past. If you have other questions or need more clarification, please contact Marcy Easterly at marcye@straffordschools.net or (417) 736-7000 ext. 1503.
