Back to School Information

New for 2019-2020 - Back to School Registration will be Online

In an effort to streamline the back to school process and cut down on paper forms, registration for families will take place online through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Registration will begin in August and parents will be notified via email with instructions for logging in and registering their student for the school year. Computers will be available at the Back to School Registration nights if you are unable to register before that date.


PLEASE NOTE: CLASS SCHEDULES OR TEACHER ASSIGNMENTS IN POWERSCHOOL ARE NOT FINAL AS CHANGES ARE BEING MADE ON A DAILY BASIS. IF YOU PAID YOUR SCHOOL FEES ONLINE PRIOR TO AUGUST 5TH YOU ONLY PAID THE REGISTRATION FEES. THE INVOICE YOU RECEIVE IN THE MAIL WILL HAVE COURSE FEES ASSIGNED.

NORTH'S BACK TO SCHOOL PACKET WAS MAILED ON AUGUST 6TH.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

(click to expand each section for more details)

Step 1 - Create a PowerSchool Parent Account

All families that did not have an account already set up were sent emails and flyers with information on starting their account. These messages contained a unique ID and password to link your student to your account. If you did not receive this information, please contact tesstar@sdmfschools.org,

Please visit www.FallsSchools.org/Parents and log in to your PowerSchool Parent account. Instructions to create new accounts or link students to current accounts can also be found there. If you have any problems, please email habekar@sdmfschools.org.

Computers will be available at the Back to School Registration nights if you are unable to register before that date.

STEP 2 - BEFORE AUGUST 19th - Register Students Online for School

All parents will need to register their student online for the 2019-2020 school year. You will update your demographic information, update your child's medical records and pay school fees. Don't forget to add on the optional Yearbook ($16) fee when paying fees online. Computers will be available at the Back to School Registration nights if you are unable to register beforehand.

Please log into the PowerSchool Parent Portal and click on the annual re-registration icon on the left side menu.

If you have any problems, please email carrsha@sdmfschools.org.


STEP 3 - Review Immunization and other required Medical Forms

1) Immunization forms will be mailed home in August. Please sign and return these at one of the Back to School Registration dates.

INCOMING 6th GRADERS: The Tdap Booster immunization is needed for all incoming 6th graders. All 6th grade students must have this before the first day of school. If a date is not listed by the Tdap Booster on our school immunization record that means that your student has not received it or we do not have record of it.

2) In the online registration, if you indicated any prescription or non prescription medication that is required to be taken at school, or if you indicated any medical conditions that require a care plan, please visit our District Nurse page to get the necessary required documents completed.

All forms need to be filled out and resubmitted at the beginning of every school year. These forms should be turned into the health room staff at the Back to School Registration or brought to the office. It is important that these forms be submitted before the first day of school.


STEP 4 - Attend Back to School Registration - Tuesday Aug 20 or Wednesday Aug 21
