Returning Student Registration

The tradition continues

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.

Returning student pre-registration for the 2022-2023 school year opens on Monday, April 18, 2022, 9:00 a.m., and will close on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

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.
