Online Registration and
Address Verification


Online household registration and address verification April 9-19

Families with students enrolled at Laramie County School District 1 schools will complete online household registration and address verification from April 9-19 using their Infinite Campus Portal account.

During this time, families must bring proof of address verification to their child’s school. Acceptable forms of verification include light/gas bills, lease agreements and mortgage contracts. Water, cable and phone bills will not be accepted.

“It is very important for parents to complete the process by April 19,” said Dr. Tracey Kinney, LCSD1 assistant superintendent of instruction. “After that time students are in danger of losing their seat at their home school or the school that they are currently attending.”

Parents/guardians with kindergarten students will attend Kindergarten Registration/Address Verification April 9-12. School specific times and dates will be announced. At this time, kindergarten students will be registered for school. Proof of address, birth certificate and current immunization records must be provided. Kindergarten students must be 5 years old by Sept. 15, 2019.

In late May, with the exception of waived students, parents/guardians who have completed registration and address verification, will receive notification of their child’s school placement for 2019–2020.

Throughout the summer, families new to the district will complete online household registration and address verification at any of the district’s secondary schools, with the exception of Triumph. In mid-August, this process will be completed at the student’s attendance-area school. They must provide proof of address documents, a copy of the child’s (or children’s) birth certificate(s) and immunization records.

Attendance-area schools can be found by entering the parent/guardian’s address on the district website: www.laramie1.org. Click on “District Resources,” “School Maps and Boundaries.”

Returning elementary students that have moved during the summer have the option to attend school at the location verified in the spring for the upcoming school year (families must provide their own transportation), or may attend their new attendance-area school.

Parents/guardians will receive elementary class list notifications in August.
