    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: 

    The registration process will not be completed until all forms are submitted.  A child is to be registered for school only at the school in their area of residence, at the time of registration, unless the child has been accepted into a Magnet School or Dual Immersion Program.  Please check, in advance, to be sure of the school attendance area in which you reside.  Please notify the school if your child will not be in attendance before the first day of school.

     

    Only parents or legal guardians are allowed to register students.  It is not necessary to bring your child(ren) with you for the registration appointment.  Legal guardians must bring valid court documents to prove their relationship to the student(s). 

     

    We encourage parents to complete the registration process as soon as possible.  Space is available on a first come, first served basis.  In cases where classrooms become overcrowded, students will be assigned to other Glendale Unified School District schools to meet the requirements of California law.
