New Student Registration-Online Enrollment: May 4 and 5
Fulton County Schools is making it easier for parents of new students to complete their child's registration for enrollment into a Fulton County School. Parents can access the easy-to-complete, online form here. This option allows parents to control the data supplied for their student's enrollment and provide for timely processing of the enrollment request. Parents can upload copies of the required supporting documents in .pdf, jpeg, and .tif formats. A list of required documents can be found here.
While this registration process will make it easier, parents will still need to bring their original documents to the school prior to the start of school. School personnel, must verify the authenticity of the documentation prior to enrollment being completed.
Bike To School Day! Wednesday, May 4, 2016
This event is for both walkers and riders (bicycles, scooters, etc.). Those that want to ride a bicycle/scooter must wear a helmet (law requirement) that fits properly and label equipment with child’s name. Everyone is encouraged to wear light colored clothing to increase our visibility as we travel to school. The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety will travel with us to ensure that we are safe and visible to everyone on the roadway.
If you plan to participate, please complete and return the form by April 29th.
