Student Registration
Welcome to our Student Registration page!
 
If you are new to our district and need to register your child(ren), you're in the right place.
 
If you have children already enrolled in our district, you still need to setup your new OneView Parent Account to update back to school information, including: contact information, emergency medical information, acceptance of the school handbook, give permission for your child to use the internet, and our Free and Reduced Meals Application.
 
We have launched this online portal to make sending and receiving information more convenient and easy for everyone.
 
For instructions on how to register your child in our district just click one of these links.

If you contact us after hours, please leave a detailed message on what you're calling about, and include your name and phone number when you call. We will get back to you as quickly as possible.

All required documents must be completed and brought with you during your scheduled appointment in order for your student to attend Hamilton Local Schools. We cannot keep your appointment if you are missing documents.
 
We need copies of your student's birth certificate, social security, shot records, proof of residency in our school district and proof of custody, if that applies in your family. Your child will not be considered enrolled until we have all documentation.
 
Please make all arrangements to obtain these items before scheduling your enrollment appointment.
 
Each child who is five years of age on or before September 30 shall be eligible to enroll in kindergarten. Each child who is six years of age on or before September 30 and who has successfully completed kindergarten shall be eligible to enroll in the first grade.
 
Students in grades K-3 that are registered prior to the first day of school are permitted to ride the bus to school. If you are registering a child that will attend our elementary school after the first day of school, they are required to have a parent/guardian take them to school on their first day of classes and should plan on arriving at 8:40 a.m. They are permitted to ride the bus home at the end of their first school day, and they are allowed to ride the bus to and from school everyday following their first day.
 
If you have questions about the enrollment process or paperwork you need, please call before your appointment. Your child will not be allowed to attend school without all documentation.
 
We appreciate all of your assistance in making the enrollment process efficient, and look forward to having your student join our Hamilton Local Schools family.
 
Thank you,

Frequently Asked Questions
 
Q - My child’s previous school has a copy of their shot records and birth certificate. My high school student’s transcript is also at their old school. Can’t you get a copy from the school?
 
A - No. Many times, they don’t send your child’s records in a timely manner.
