Back-to-School Information

What do I need to do before school starts?

1. Submit the following enrollment forms as soon as possible (if you haven’t already)

Health Forms:

Free or Reduced Lunch Forms (ALL families):

We need completed National School Lunch Program (NSLP) forms from everyone. These forms are critical for the school’s reporting, so please complete and submit at Reg Online. These forms were accidentally set to “enabled” in the Reg Online system in the Spring, indicating that the form was filled out when it wasn’t. If you filled out the form prior to July 1, it needs to be resubmitted. PLEASE go into the system and make sure you’ve signed the NSLP form.

In the interest of time, you may also submit documents electronically by emailing them to enroll@francophoneschool.org or directly to the school office, which is open from 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Other Important Registration Information

Information such as your child’s emergency contact information, and the list of people approved to pick them up from school can be provided via Reg Online. It is very important for you to complete your registration by the first day of school! If you have any issues, feel free to call the office at (510) 746-0700, or come directly to the office for help.
