REQUIRED: Online Student Profile

County licensing regulations require that we have certain information on file for all students. You will need to send a hard copy of the signed Medical Inventory/Immunization Records/Lead Test Authorization  completed by a doctor. We have replaced the rest of the required forms with a computerized version through our Online Student Profile (Formsite/Guidestar).

Both returning families and new families must either enroll or update existing information in the Online Student Profile program through Guidestar/Formsite.  The profile must be updated each year.

~Returning families should sign-in using your existing user ID and password credentials from last year.  All information should be confirmed, and changes made as needed.  You must sign and date the form with a 2019 date and press submit to update the information. You will click on "sign in". New siblings will need to be enrolled separately if he/she is not in the system from last year. 
~New families must enroll in the program. Click on the "enroll" button and proceed as directed.  You will need to fill out a new form for each child, but do not create a new account for a second child. The program does not allow you to save and copy the information into a second form, so you will need to re-enter the parent information sections.
Note: Students who are "Summer Only"also must update/enroll the information in Guidestar/Formstie for the new school year.
