    Time Saving Tips
    • Online Registration: I registered my new student (k-5) online, do I need to attend a registration at the school? Yes, to finalize the student’s registration process you must attend an onsite registration. Please bring your online registration confirmation number and all paperwork so they can verify that all necessary paperwork has been uploaded and is legible in the APS system.
    • Your Pediatrician/Dentist may have a 7-14 day turn around time for your child's Immunization and Georgia Vision, Hearing & Dental form request.
    • Notarize your Affidavit of Residency in advance. 
    • Make sure all required documents are with you on site.  APS cannot process incomplete applications.
