            rocket        Student Transfer:          rocket

Hardship, Curriculum Necessity and Medical transfers expire at the close of the school year.

They must be renewed annually.  Provision is made by the Caddo Parish School Board for students to transfer from a school in which they are a part of a majority race to a school where they would be part of the minority race.  Transportation for a student who is transfered under the provisions of the Majority to Minority (M to M) policy will be provided to a school nearest the student's home school attendance area.

New enrollees from out of parish or state must first go to the Caddo Parish School Board and obtain "Permission to Enroll" by presenting proof of address in the form of current, paid utility bills.

After obtaining Permission to Enroll from CPSB, if applicable, bring your child's:

birth certificate   , social security card,    LA shot records,

last report card and/or test scores,   utility bill at current residence and

a valid form of identification to Walnut Hill. At the school your child's counselor will review your paperwork and have you complete a student information form as well as a health infor mation form.

All students taking medications at school will need to take a medication form to their child's pediatrician and deliver the medication to the school as needed for refills to Mrs. Scott or Mrs. Boston in the office.  You may not sen medication refills to school with your child. Medication must be signed in by a parent or guardian.

If you are not a parent listed on the child's birth certificate and are a legal guardian, please submit legal custodial papers at the time of enrollment.

If you maintain sole custody or split custody, please submit legal custodial papers at enrollment.
