2023-24 Student Registration

As we prepare for the start of the next school year, it's time register your student for 2023-24. This is something we ask ALL HPS families to do EVERY year. 

Completing the registration lets us know your student(s) will be returning next year!  It also lets you:

  • Review and update household contact information
  • Review and update student health information
  • Request transportation 2022-2023 school year (Deadline to request bussing is August 10)

Without this information, your student can not be added to a class list for next year OR have a class schedule created for them.

It doesn't take long to update this information in your Parent Portal account - but it is so important that you do it very soon!

Don’t Risk a Gap in Your Medicaid or CHIP Coverage: Get Ready to Renew Now.

In March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) temporarily waived certain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) requirements and conditions due to the Public Health Emergency (PHE) Declaration. The easing of these rules helped prevent people with Medicaid and CHIP from losing their health coverage during the pandemic. The PHE will end 5/11/23 and families will need to go through Medicaid redetermination to retain the benefit.
