Tustin Unified School District’s elementary schools will conduct 2018-19 school year registration for kindergarten and new students, beginning Tuesday, July 24. Registration times are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday throughFriday. The first day of school is Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Elementary schools are kindergarten through fifth grade. Tustin Connect K-8 online school has moved to the Helen Estock Elementary School campus.
Orchard Hills School will now serve students in kindergarten through fourth grades along with grades 5-8. Hicks Canyon Elementary School will welcome back fifth-grade students with grades K-4.
TUSD offers online registration for new students through the Aeries Parent Portal located on its Website’s Home Page at www.tustin.k12.ca.us. While parents and legal guardians can register their children online, they will still need to visit their home school to present documentation.
Schools will ask for proof of residence, which must be provided in three forms: rental contract, lease agreement, escrow paper, mortgage payment coupon, property tax bill or grant deed; electric, gas or water bill dated within the last 90 days; and current photo ID of parent or guardian with matching address.
Children who will be five years old on or before Sept. 1 of this year (2018) are eligible to enter kindergarten for the upcoming school year. Parents registering their children need to provide proof of their child’s birthdate and health immunization records.
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) will be offered at eight elementary school sites within TUSD: Benson, Guin Foss, Heideman, Heritage, Myford, Nelson, Tustin Ranch and Veeh. To be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten (the first year of a two-year kindergarten program), a student must turn five years old between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2 of the 2018-19 school year. TK students enroll at their home school of attendance.
Parents are asked to call or visit their home school for more information. TUSD schools of residence can be determined by using the School Locator under the Schools tab on the TUSD Website at www.tustin.k12.ca.us.
Information on attendance areas for Tustin Unified elementary schools is available from the District’s Student Services Department at (714) 730-7301, ext. 51317. Individuals can also seek school locations and other information by visiting the TUSD Website.
