What paperwork do I need to register?

A legal document with a student's legal name on it is required to register students.   A birth certificate is necessary for those registering in kindergarten.  If you have specific questions about these requirements don't hesitate to call one of the contact people above. 

What if I am transferring from one Mount Baker school to another?

It is not uncommon for families to move residences within the boundaries of the school district.  Simply contact the building secretary (named above) and she will provide you with the necessary information.

How are classroom placements made?

Elementary principals make placement decisions.  Factors include (but are not limited to) boy/girl ratio and student needs.  If you have questions or concerns about this process you are encouraged to talk with the school principal.
