As you complete your online forms, you will need to upload the required documentation in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Please name each file with your student’s FIRST and LAST name as it appears on the birth certificate, and the contents of the file (i.e. Sam Smith Birth Certificate.pdf).
     

    The documents that will need to be submitted for enrollment are the following:
