Fort Wayne Community Schools staff members will be visiting homes throughout the district this week reminding families of the upcoming registration dates.

Families can register for the 2014-15 school year from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 1, and from noon-7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 4. All registrations take place at the school the student will attend. All students, including those who are returning to the same school, must register. Families unable to attend the scheduled registration dates can contact their child’s school to make other arrangements.

This is the third year FWCS staff has visited families at their homes to remind them of registration. This year, staff will visit more homes than ever before, with school-based staff focusing on homes in their attendance area.

“It is important that our families know we are thinking about them even when school is not in session,” Superintendent Dr. Wendy Robinson said. “Our staff members enjoy visiting the neighborhoods where their students live, and students love seeing their teachers, principals and other familiar faces at their house. It’s a fun experience for everyone.”
