In-Person Enrollment

Centralized Enrollment for all new students to the Haysville School District for the 2020 - 2021 school year will be held at the USD 261 Administration Building, 1745 W. Grand, July 6, 2020 through August 14, 2020 between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday. After August 14, enrollment will take place at your student's boundary school.

As we focus on safety precautions for staff and the school community, we will be following strict health guidelines and practicing social distancing. These guidelines include but are not limited to: 1 set of doors that will allow visitors to come and go. The exterior doors will be labeled with ENTRANCE and EXIT; six feet of social distancing which will be marked on the floor (please be prepared to wait outside or in your vehicle); plexiglass screens at help desks; and masks are required for anyone entering the building. We also ask that only the parent/guardians that are enrolling the student attend to limit the number of visitors in the building and potential wait time.
