Student Registration Information 2017-18

Back to School Registration Fall 2017

Back-to-School Registration is for students already enrolled in the Park City School District, including:

• 5th graders rising from a PCSD elementary
• 7th graders returning to EHMS
• new students who pre-enrolled last spring

To enroll a NEW student (not already enrolled/pre-enrolled in the district), see the New Student Enrollment information below.

Schools Begins Thursday, August 24

NOTE: Registration packets will be mailed home on August 7 to the primary parent listed in PowerSchool as of June.

HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR STUDENT’S BACK-TO-SCHOOL REGISTRATION:

1. Online Registration
The online registration is required for all district students. You can do the online registration from home. You will need a ‘snapcode’ to access the online system. The codes will be emailed on August 7. Didn't get the email? Check your junk/spam folder, and check both parents’ email accounts—the system sends the code to only one parent. A paper copy will also be mailed home, in the registration information. Contact the school if you need another copy. If you don’t have internet access at home, you can use a computer at the school on the dates listed below.

Proof of residency is required for all district students and must be provided at registration (and again if the student moves during the school year). Parents must complete a Proof of Residency Form (Formulario de residencia en español) and provide supporting proof documentation. See the form for a list of acceptable documents. Bring your Proof of Residency form AND acceptable proof documentation to the school during the scheduled registration dates (see above).

3. Parent Electronic Device Orientation - Parents must view this online orientation video before the student will receive their school laptop. Go to the Parent Electronic Device Orientation page for instructions (en español).

4. Pay School Fees
Fees are paid online during the InfoSnap registration process. The final page will link you to the eFunds site, our payment vendor. You can pay fees online with a credit/debit card or e-check. If you set up an eFunds account last year, you can use the account again. If you are planning to pay cash for student fees, you may do so at registration. To see a list of fees, please click here Fee Form

To apply for a Fee Waiver, see the financial secretary, Jennifer Ivers, during the scheduled registration dates. You can print a fee waiver application from the online registration or pick one up at the school. Proof of income must be provided with the application.
