Student Registration

If you are registering your child for school during the summer months, you will need to complete a registration packet on the District Web site and turn it in to the District Office. Your child will be registered at his/her resident school according to the current school attendance boundaries. As classrooms reach capacity, your child's registration will be reviewed to determine if the resident school has capacity or if your child will be attending a different school within the Sumner School District.

Please call your resident school after August 26 to check on the status of your child's registration.

Thank you for your patience during this time of growth as we evaluate enrollment to best serve family needs.
