District-Wide Returning Student Verification Forms
The “Returning Student Verification” process is currently open. All current Wards Creek parents should have received, or will soon be receiving, a notification to complete this process. If you did not receive anything, please email Tammy Stewart. Please note that this is a District required process that must be completed in order for your child to be appropriately placed in a class for the next school year. Some things to remember:
– If you have a current Wards Creek student and you plan to stay at Wards Creek, please complete your RSV as soon as possible. Completing the RSV ensures that your child receives a teacher assignment for next year.
– If you have a current Wards Creek student and you are moving to a different St. Johns Co. school for 2020-21, you should complete the RSV.
If you have a student at another St. Johns Co. school, but you are moving into the Wards Creek zone for 2020-21, you should complete the RSV and enter your new address information. Completing the RSV ensures that your child’s information gets moved and he/she receives a teacher assignment for next year.
– If you are not returning to Wards Creek or any St. Johns Co. school next year, you should still complete the RSV – there is a section for you to tell us that you are not returning. This will ensure that your child is properly withdrawn at the end of the school year.
– You should only complete the “New Student Pre-Registration” if you are brand new to the St. Johns Co. School District. If you have questions about registering a brand new student, please visit our Registration page.
Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on March 2nd.
District-wide registration for the 2020-2021 school year is now OPEN. Please click the Pre-Register My Student For 2020-2021 button on our school registration page to complete an online registration form for your child.
Returning Student Verification email forms (snapcodes) will begin sending on Wednesday, April 29, 2020. Please note: you may receive your children's snapcodes on different dates, depending on student grade level and the school each child attends.
Current 6th grade students: Snapcodes for all 6th grade students will be sent at a later date due to the tdap vaccination requirement. If your 6th grade student is up to date with all immunizations, including the tdap immunization, and you have an updated copy of their HRS 680 immunization form, you can email [email protected] to request your child's snapcode. Otherwise, all 6th grade snapcodes be sent in the next few weeks.
This is just a reminder that anyone (parent, guardian, friend, neighbor, aunt, uncle) must have school access to attend an event at Wards Creek Elementary, have lunch with a student and/or attend an awards assembly. If you have not already done so, please complete the School Access Form. The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access. Once the application is approved, school access will be valid for three years.
FortifyFL is a website and app developed at the direction of the Florida Legislature. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or getfortifyfl.com.
