“This is a contactless way for our new families to complete the enrollment process from the convenience of their home,” said Courtney Long, director of student services.


Those who enroll online will receive communication back from the district within 3 business days, confirming the receipt of their enrollment and notifying them of the next steps in the process.


For those unable to complete the process online, an in-person new student enrollment will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, and Thursday, Aug. 6, at Waynesville High School, regardless of the child’s grade. Families are asked to wear masks and to observe distancing guidelines from other families and may be asked to wait in a waiting area to maintain social distancing.  Families who are completing the process in person on Aug. 5 and 6 should go to the main entrance at Waynesville High School. It is not necessary for the child to be present at the time of enrollment.
