We have gathered all the information below you need to get set for the school year.  You will find information for new student registration, returning student registration, and important links.
REMEMBER, our first day of school for students is Monday, August 14!
Registration Links
New student enrollment is only for students who were not enrolled in Ashdown School District at the end of the school year. Please click the link above to learn more. Students are not completely enrolled without online registration.
All students are required to verify their information online each school year, even if they attended  Ashdown Schools last year. This allows us to ensure all information on file is current.

District CommunicationDistrict Communication

The district utilizes OneCall as our automated notification system. To ensure you receive text and telephone communication from the district throughout the school year, please make sure that all of your contact information is up-to-date.  Text messaging is used as a mode of communication during inclement weather, and emergencies, and to draw attention to other important updates from the district. 

In addition to OneCall, individual teachers and/or buildings may use other modes of Remind throughout the year.

Bus Routes
REMINDERS: It is commonplace for transportation delays to occur at the beginning of each school year. These delays often work themselves out during the first few weeks as drivers better familiarize themselves with their routes, as students learn to navigate their new building and/or bus location, and as student enrollment stabilizes.
We appreciate your understanding, patience, and support as we work through these delays.
