Schools are Open
Due to budgetary concerns and class size considerations, your child(ren) may not necessarily attend your home school. Decisions regarding where your child(ren) will attend will be made as soon as possible and be based upon seat availability. Transportation to and from school will be provided at district expense.
As per Board Policy # 5112, a new resident child who has attended a public or private school may be placed at the grade level, other than kindergarten or first grade, recommended by the previous school.
If it becomes necessary to transfer a child to another school, the parent/guardian must obtain a transfer card from the secretary of the school at which the child is currently enrolled. Please be sure that the health information requested is completed. When the child is registered at the new school, a release form must be completed and sent to the previous school. This process permits the child’s records to be forwarded.
To transfer a new resident child to Howell Township Public Schools for the current school year:
The Board of Education will admit children of school age who reside in this district and will admit other children in accordance with law and this policy. The Board reserves the right to verify the residency or anticipated residency of any person who claims eligibility for enrollment.
