Tustin Unified School District elementary schools (except Tustin Memorial Academy) will conduct early registration, beginning Monday, March 14, for new students, transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten through fifth-grade students who plan to attend classes in the 2016-17 school year.
Tustin Memorial held its registration on a lottery basis on Monday, March 7.
Parents may begin the registration process online through the TUSD AIR Portal at https://air.tustin.k12.ca.us/
air/. The AIR enrollment allows parents to quickly begin the process of enrolling their child for school. The benefit to online enrollment is parents are able to complete forms online rather than by hand. Upon completion, the student’s information is sent to the school electronically.
The new Heritage Elementary School, a science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) magnet school, is opening in the fall and will conduct registration Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon in the school’s multipurpose room, 15400 Lansdowne Road, in Tustin.
Registration at the other elementary schools will be held weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Schools will ask for proof of residence, such as a rental contract, lease agreement, escrow paper or grant deed; gas, electric or water bill; and photo ID (example: driver’s license) of parent or guardian.
Children who will be five years old on or before Sept. 1 of this year (2016) are eligible to enter kindergarten for the upcoming school year. Children who will be five-years-old between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2 of this year (2016) are eligible to enter transitional kindergarten. Parents registering their children need to provide proof of their child’s birthdate and health immunization records.
According to state law, the following immunizations are required for all new students: polio, diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis (DPT), measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), hepatitis B series and varicella (chicken pox).
Parents are asked to call or visit their home school for more information.
