The Registrar Office is currently accepting paperwork for new incoming students until May 1, 2018.

This year the Office of The State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) and The DCPS Office of School Design and Continuous Improvement (SDCI) have implemented changes requiring more rigorous protocols for enrollment and residency verification. We are compelled to ensure you are informed of these significant changes since all returning students are required to complete enrollment packets each school year.

We are hosting two mandatory enrollment meetings for all returning parents to provide you with the essential information to successfully complete your enrollment and residency verification process for SY 2018-2019. Your attendance is crucial.
You will be expected to complete and return your enrollment packet and residency documents by June 15, 2018, in order to secure seating for the upcoming school year.

Please plan to attend ONE of the enrollment meetings on
April 17, 2018 6:30pm -7:3Opm Performance Hall
April 19, 2018 6:30pm -7:30pm Performance Hall

AND complete and return your enrollment packet within the timeframe.

If your student is not planning to return to Ellington, please contact the Registrar Office as soon as possible to prepare for the proper withdrawal/transfer process. It is imperative to work proactively to increase proper implementation of the DCPS withdrawal policy. In addition, we want to ensure the return of all Ellington textbooks and supplies.

Please note no enrollment packets will be mailed as DCPS has determined it more efficient to make the forms accessible online through the website. (*Go to the link to download and print)

Additional pertinent information and resources will be available at the enrollment meetings. SEE YOU THERE!

Please contact the Registrar Office for questions or additional assistance with any special circumstances.
