Registration Information

August registration is a very important event for Kinard families. At least one parent and the student are required to attend registration. The registration format is an “open-house” based on grade level, so come at your convenience on the date and during the time indicated below. Please park in the front (south) parking lot and enter through the Music Doors.

While we highly recommend registering prior to the first day of school, staff will also be available for registration during the morning prior to the first days of school. This should only be considered an option if you have been out of town or otherwise unable to attend registration on the scheduled days. Skillman Photography will not be present, and make-up pictures are scheduled for September 1st.

7:20 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.

On registration days, we will be distributing schedules, assigning lockers and student laptops, and collecting important forms and contributions. Students will have access to lockers if they choose to bring school supplies, and individual student pictures will be taken by Skillman Photography (Thursday and Friday only with make-up pictures scheduled for September 1st).

Here are additional details to help ensure a smooth registration process and an amazing start to our school year!
