LAFAYETTE — Registration is now open for Lafayette Parish School students who will be attending a new school this fall.

School officials are encouraging students to register now at their new schools rather than to wait for the first day of school.

Registration is necessary for those students who may have moved during the summer, were recently accepted into a school of choice or students coming into the school system from a private school or home school setting.

Elementary and middle school students who are advancing to their regularly zoned middle or high school do not need to register.

For more information about records required for registration or for other questions, call your local school.
