    Note to Early Childhood registrations: All of the available slots have been filled and enrollment is full. We will continue to take applications and you will be placed on a waitlist. If something opens up and your student's application is approved, you will be notified. 

    • To register a NEW student, you will create a login separate from any PowerSchool parent account. 
    • If you have previously registered a NEW student through PowerSchool registration and have forgotten your password, enter your email address and select the "Forgot Password" link.
    • If your email address is not recognized, please create a new account. 
    • If your student had previously attended a Lawrence Public school, and is returning to our district - you will register him/her as a new student. You will have a chance to mark them as a "previous student" in the application.
