Registration is underway for new and returning students who will be attending Apache Junction Unified School District during the 2018-2019 school year. Parents and guardians are encouraged to register their student as soon as possible to help ensure smaller class sizes.
The first day of school is July 24, and all AJUSD schools operate on a modified five-day schedule. School calendars, bell times and other information is listed on the district’s website https://az01901895.schoolwires.net/domain/37
Students who are currently enrolled, as well as those who register before July 16, will receive a ticket that can be cashed in for free school supplies.
“The beginning of the school year can be hectic, so we strongly advise parents and guardians to register their students as soon as possible so they have one less thing to worry about this summer,” said Heather Wallace, director of educational services. “It also helps us plan more efficiently and provide our families with the best options for their children.”
Registration packets for returning students were distributed in April and can be returned to the school where the student will be enrolled. Replacement packets are available upon request. New student packets are available at each school site and the District Office, 1575 W. Southern Ave. in Apache Junction., or online: 2018-19 Student Registration Packet (PS-8) or 2018-16 Student Registration Packet (9-12)
In addition to the registration packet, student’s parents or guardians should bring the child’s shot records, proof of residency and the child’s birth certificate when registering their child for school.
