Remember to Confirm Your Child's Spot in Their New School

There are two more months before school starts, and it won’t be long before we see back-to-school supplies in stores. We want to share a few important tips for families whose student(s) will be changing schools or joining MPS for the first time in the fall.

If you received notice of your child’s enrollment in a school, you need to also register them in person at that school to confirm their spot. School staff are out for the summer, so please stop by either of our Student Placement Offices or convenient pop-up placement sites to complete the registration process and confirm your student’s spot in their new school.

Students enrolled and registered by July 29 are guaranteed bus transportation on the first day of school and will be notified in late August of their bus stop, if they are eligible for transportation. We cannot ensure transportation on the first day for those who register after July 29. So register now! If you register now, you’ll avoid long lines in schools and our Placement Offices during August.

Thank you for choosing MPS and have a great rest of the summer. We hope to hear from you soon!
