General Registration Information

Our registration forms are intended for students who are new to our division - including preschool and kindergarten students, or who have left the division for a period of time and are returning.

If you are transferring from one NLPS school to another, you do not have to complete a new registration form. Students moving from one school to another school in the division can request to have their information moved to their new school.

Students transitioning from elementary school to middle school or middle school to high school will have their registration information automatically transferred to the receiving school. You may be asked to confirm and/or update the information we have on file, but you will not be required to complete a new registration form.
