Beginning on Monday, July 15, 2019, parents of all returning Duneland School students may register their children online using the Parent Access Portal. Online payments will be available for grades K-6 only on Monday, July 15. Due to potential student schedule changes, online payments for grades 7-12 will be available beginning on Monday, Sept. 16.

Returning students that are transitioning to a new building will not need to provide proof of residency.Ê

Returning students whose residence has changed within the district will need to attend single-site registration, unless proof of residency was provided to the school at the time of the move. If your current address does not match the address in your Skyward Parent Portal, you must provide proof of residency at single-site registration.

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. 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.

Curricular fees are payable through Revtrak in your Skyward Parent Portal. Parents are encouraged to pay school fees online when registering. For grades K-6 online payments will also be available on Monday, July 15. Due to potential student schedule changes, online payments for grades 7-12 will be available beginning on Monday, Sept. 16. 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 July 29, 2019.)

NEW Kindergarten students whose parent/guardian attended Kindergarten Round-Up do not need to attend Single-Site Registration if they completed the New ‘Online’ Student Application, supplied all the necessary required documents at Round-Up and received an email with their Parent Access credentials. Please log in to your Parent Access Portal on or after Monday, July 15 to review the student information and submit your child’s registration.
