Early Bird 2020-21 Registration for Neighborhood K-8 Schools is February 3-7

Jefferson Parish Schools is holding a special early registration period for families new to the district who are interested in one of the system’s K-8 schools for the 2020-21 school year. 

The early bird registration period will take place February 3-7. Families can register each day at the school their child would attend from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. K-8s are neighborhood schools that serve students in grades kindergarten through 8th. While some K-8 schools serve pre-kindergarten students, this registration period is not for pre-K. 

This registration period is for families who will be new to Jefferson Parish Schools and will live in a K-8 district in 2020-21. Families must live in the district of a K-8 school to be eligible for registration.
