An overall registration guide is available here. Please note that Registration Day will be Wednesday, July 25, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm in the U-High library. You will be able to turn in necessary forms, purchase spirit wear, visit with Boosters and purchase parking permits. Students can start getting new ID cards on Monday, July 23 from the Redbird Card Office. All students need to get a new ID.
NEW THIS YEAR: We will have a portable Raptor system so that all parents that attend registration can swipe their driver’s license and be cleared for visiting the building and helping with activities such as After Prom throughout the year. As always, volunteering in greater capacities, such as coaching or driving, will still require full background checks and fingerprinting.
If you have any problems, please call the main office at 309.438.8428.
