Elementary Schools Conduct Fall Registration for New Students
Tustin Unified School District's elementary schools are now conducting 2017-18 school year registration for kindergarten and new students. Registration times are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Elementary schools are kindergarten through fifth grade (Hicks Canyon serves grades K-4 only; fifth-graders attend Orchard Hills School). Tustin Connect K-8 online school is located on the campus at Heritage School. The first day of school is Tuesday, Aug. 22.
TUSD offers online registration for new students through the Aeries Parent Portal located on its web site's Home Page at www.tustin.k12.ca.us. While parents and legal guardians can register their children online, they will still need to visit their home school to present documentation.
Schools will ask for proof of residence, which must be provided in three forms: rental contract, lease agreement, escrow paper, mortgage payment coupon, property tax bill or grant deed; electric, gas or water bill dated within the last 90 days; and current photo ID of parent or guardian with matching address.
Children who will be five years old on or before Sept. 1 of this year (2017) are eligible to enter kindergarten for the upcoming school year. Parents registering their children need to provide proof of their child's birthdate and health immunization records.
Transitional Kindergarten will be offered at seven school sites within TUSD. To be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten (the first year of a two-year kindergarten program), a student must turn five years old between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2 of the 2017-18 school year. Transitional Kindergarten students enroll at their home school of attendance.
Parents are asked to call or visit their home school for more information.
Information on attendance areas for Tustin Unified elementary schools is available from the District's Student Services Department at (714) 730-7301, ext. 51317. Individuals can also seek school locations and other information by visiting the TUSD Web site.
