Registration information for 2020-2021 school year

Normal Park Student Registration Info

In an effort to eliminate Registration Day, we have streamlined the process into the following steps. Steps 1-3 must be completed before your child begins school in the fall. If you are having trouble with any of the links, they are also available at www.hcde.org.

Step 1: Complete Normal Park Registration form

You will need to submit the following Google form. This is NOT optional. Click on the link below to begin:

Step 2: Complete online student registration

RETURNING STUDENTS

Registration for RETURNING STUDENTS is available now through May 22nd for the 2020 - 2021 school year. If your child attended a Hamilton County school in 2019 - 2020 and will be attending another Hamilton County school in the fall, your child will enroll as a Returning Student.

 

Visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal to enroll your child. If you are new to PowerSchool and you do not have a Parent Portal access ID and password or have forgotten your login info, please contact the school.  Lower School parents Grades K-3rd email buttram_h@hcde.org for login info. Upper School parents grades 4th-8th email bowes_billie@hcde.org.

 

NOTE:  You do not need to upload proofs of residence.  Proofs will have to be shown in person. See Step 3 for more information.

NEW STUDENTS

Any student who did not attend a Hamilton County school last year will register as a new student. New student registration will begin online on Monday, June 1, 2020. You will need to create an account and complete an online registration form by clicking on the following link: New Student Registration

 

Kindergarten parents: If you missed Kindergarten registration online, the process will be available again Monday, May 18 through Friday, May 22. Click here to complete the HCDE online form. If you do not have internet access, you may come to the school Wednesday, May 20th from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Due to safety concerns no one will be permitted into the building, this process will be completed in your car using an Ipad that we will bring out to you. You only need to come to the school if you cannot complete the HCDE form online. If you can complete the form and cannot get your proofs, birth certificate, etc uploaded, no need to come to the school, we will make copies of those items for you in August.

 

 

NEW MAGNET STUDENTS

If your child went to another HCDE school last year and has accepted a magnet spot at Normal Park for the 2020-21 year, register as a returning student.  We will transfer them into our system. Kindergarten magnet students will register as a New Student.

 

View the Parent Portal Instructions, or contact your school  for more information.

 

 

STEPS 3 and 4 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL JULY.

 

Step 3: Bring in 2 proofs of residence.

All students MUST show two proofs of residence in person before starting school (ex: electric, phone, cable, or any other utility bill). Proofs do not need to be uploaded through the parent portal.  Proofs must be dated no earlier than 30 days before school starts.

 

We will provide opportunities to bring in your proofs before school starts as soon as those dates and events are finalized. Stand by!
