ONLY THE RESIDENTIAL OR LEGAL CUSTODIAN/GUARDIAN OF THE CHILD MAY ENROLL THE CHILD IN SCHOOL. Parents, legal custodians/guardians need to enroll their child(ren) in school in the building(s) which the child(ren) will be attending. Enrollment is by appointment, and all steps must be completed before a student may attend Highland Local Schools. School contact information can be found at the bottom of the page.
This is a simple process. To the right under ‘enrollment steps’ you will find a records release request form, an enrollment process checklist, medical action plans (if applicable) and a link to FinalForms. Please follow this link to create or access your FinalForms account.
FinalForms is an on-line program which will enable you and your student(s) to complete and file MOST forms electronically. After the initial inputting of information, this program will save time. All parents of Highland students are required to use this program. The custodial Parent or Guardian must have a valid email address. The #1 contact in FinalForms will be the number used for School Messenger, our parent notification system. It is then up to the parents to keep their child's information updated, plus your student's information will carry over from year to year.
If you are enrolling a child(ren) in Kindergarten, please review the Kindergarten Readiness Activities Packet.
