Registration Information for Returning Students

  • Register online NOW
    Parents of all returning Duneland School students may register their children online using the Parent Access Portal. Thank you for your time in reviewing and editing this vital information regarding your student(s) for the schools. 

    Returning students that are transitioning to a new building will no longer need to provide proof of residency unless they have moved since they last enrolled in school.

    Returning students whose residence has changed within the district will need to provide proof of residency to your child's school if your current address does not match the address in your Skyward Parent Portal.

    Please Note: If you are the parent of a current Duneland student and wish to enroll an additional student for the first time (for example, a kindergarten student), please log in to your Skyward parent account before completing the application.  Once logged in to the Parent Access Portal, look for the "New Student Application" button on the top left. This will help ensure that your new student account will be linked with your parent account.

    K-6 Curricular fees are payable through Revtrak in your Skyward Parent Portal. Parents of students in grades K-6 are encouraged to pay this year's school fees online.  Due to potential student schedule changes, online payments for grades 7-12 will be available beginning on Monday, Sept. 14. For individuals that must pay by check or cash, will need to make arrangements to pay their fees at their child’s school.  (School offices are scheduled to reopen on Monday, July 27, 2020.)

    ALL NEW students will need to login to their Parent Access Portal to review the student information and submit their child’s registration.
