Returning Student Registration
The tradition continues
If you need to visit The Joseph Sears School for registration-related purposes, we highly recommend you schedule a time with Registrar firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of time. This will ensure someone is available to answer all of your questions.
Families of students returning to The Joseph Sears School next year are encouraged to pre-register their children as soon as possible. Pre-registration is an important part of the administrative planning process for the upcoming year.
The online portal for returning student registration will open on April 17, 2023. Please submit an online registration form through this active link: Returning Student PowerSchool Portal. You will need a PowerSchool snapcode. Snapcodes will be emailed to parents on April 17.
If you would like to be included in The Joseph Sears School Handbook Family Directory, please complete the online registration form by Friday, July 14, 2023.
Please register your child through the Returning Student PowersSchool Portal. You will need the PowerSchool snapcode which is emailed to parents. If you cannot find the email with your snapcode, please request a code through The Joseph Sears School Data Manager's Help Desk. If you forgot your password, use the forgot password link provided through the Returning Student PowerSchool Portal.

Step 2: Download, complete and submit to the School Nurse required health forms for your child.
NEW! Step 3: Confirm residency in the summer at a Confirm Residency Document Intake Day. All new and returning students are required to re-confirm KSD38 residency at a Confirm Residency Document Intake Day.
Please be sure your child has received his or her immunizations prior to the first day of school. Children who are not immunized before Oct. 15 will not be permitted to attend school.
