We are sending out some updated information in regards to our Registration Night and Open House. We hope that this clears up some confusion from the summer letter. We will have stations set up for you to visit and you can see those stations below.

Registration Open House at Laurel Ridge Middle School (for ALL grades)

  • August 23rd: 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
  • August 24th: 9:00 – 2:00 p.m.

ParentVue and Demographic Changes will be handed out in student folders, with their schedules. You will pick these up at station 1.

Student Fees & Payments: Student fees will be collected at Registration Night and Open House prior to issuing student schedules. Only cash or checks are accepted onsite. At this time, we will not be collecting Chromebook fees until after the start of the school year. Fees will be collected at station 1.

Locker Assignments: 8th Grade students will be able to sign up for locker partners at Registration events. They will not be pre-assigned. Students will not be able to request locker placements. We are looking for volunteers to share lockers, as we do not have enough lockers for all of our students. Please see station 2 to sign up.

Medication Drop-Off: Our nurse, Jerilyn Wernet, will be available tonight to receive medication from 4 pm -7 pm. Please stop by station 2 to fill out medication forms.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our registration events and we hope that you are enjoying these final days of summer.
