If you need to register your kindergartener or preschool student for the 2022-2023 school year, you may now do so online at Parents of students who currently attend preschool through Canton Local Schools do not need to re-register for kindergarten. You will receive a separate email with instructions.

First Day Forms

Our district is once again using the First Day Forms online system. This process replaces hard copy student registration and permission forms typically sent home on the first day of school.

You should have received an email with your student’s snapcode and link to the powerschool enrollment system.  We ask that you complete these forms as soon as possible. All forms must be submitted prior to the first day of school.  If you have any questions you can email or call 330-484-8010.
