At OPHS we encourage our families to take part in “Fast Track Registration.” This process allows you to submit the required forms in advance and speed up the registration process in August. As a participant in Fast Track Registration you will go through an expedited line at open registration, pick up your confirmation packet which will include your class schedule and receipts for fees or obligations paid. You will then have the opportunity to have your student ID picture taken, check your bus schedule, and try out your locker combination.
This packet includes the necessary paperwork for the required registration process. To participate in Fast Track Registration the following forms must be completed and returned to OPHS in the enclosed return envelope by July 13, 2015. Please ensure that you have signed, initialed and dated both sides of the below forms.
Envelopes returned after July 13, 2015, will not ensure your participation in our Fast Track Registration process. If you choose not to participate in Fast Track Registration, you will need to bring your completed forms to open registration, but you will NOT be able to go through the expedited line.
Open registration dates:
Monday, August 3, 2015 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Tuesday, August 4, 2015 12:00 PM – 7:00 PM
North Kansas City Schools requires residency verification for ALL students at the beginning of each school year. Residency verification information was sent to all families on April 16. If you need to access those forms you can find it here.
