We look forward to meeting your family and thank you for the opportunity to educate your child(ren). We know that you will be pleased with our experienced staff and high learning expectations. Parents are an important part of a child's learning experience--we encourage you to become actively involved in your neighborhood school.
Something new for the Fall 2016-2017 school year is the "screening" process for incoming kindergartners. The screening begins this summer. Parents are asked to call 494-2044 to set up a time for their kindergartner.
Student assignments are based on home addresses (if you are unsure of your neighborhood school, please 616-494-2950 for assistance).
To enroll your child, you may stop in at your neighborhood school, or download the Enrollment Form, (Formulario de Inscripcion del Estudiante), complete, and bring to your school office. You may also download the Record Release Form, (Solicitud de Record de la Escuela), which gives HPS permission to get your child's records from previous schools. It is a state requirement that the birth certificate and vaccination record of your child must be presented upon enrollment. Proof of residency is also required--please bring a current bill, lease agreement or license that shows your current address. Please use the Health Appraisal Form for students that are entering preschool or kindergarten. Also the MDE Concussion Form should be filled out
