Enrollment and New Student Registration

Enrollment and New Student Registration

Welcome to Suffolk Public Schools!

**Please note schools are currently closed, so parents should call the school at 757-923-4169 to schedule a time to bring all documents necessary to complete the enrollment process.***

Here are some things to keep in mind as you register your child for the 2022-2023 school year:

  • Students entering Kindergarten must have reached their fifth birthday on or before September 30th of the year in which they enroll.
  • At the time of registration, the parent or legal guardian (proof of guardianship required) must submit a photo identification and ONE item for proof of residency in the City of Suffolk.
  • Acceptable proofs of residency include:
    ~Utility bill (gas, water or electric) within the last two months for the current Suffolk address,
    ~Rental lease, rental agreement, deed, or mortgage contract for the current Suffolk address (signed), or City of Suffolk receipt for paid personal property taxes

To enroll a child in a public school division in Virginia, state law requires the parent/guardian provide certain information to the school division:

  • Original Birth Certificate
  • School Entrance Physical and Immunization Record (the school physical form can be found on the Virginia Department of Education's website and completed by your child's physician)
  • Custody or Court order/Foster Care Information Form (if applicable)
  • Individual Education Plan (IEP) or 504 (if applicable)

Please visit the Suffolk Public School's page for New Student Registration for documents that can downloaded and completed. Once you have all of the completed documents ready, you can call the school to schedule an appointment to complete enrollment. If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact the Office of Student Services at 757-925-6750.
