New Student Registration

Welcome, we are excited for your child to join Wasatch Elementary! The following will provide you with information regarding the registration of your student.

Please note, there will be no in-person event for Kindergarten Registration. Kindergarten Registration will be online this year. We would encourage you to upload documents, however, documentation will also be accepted at the office.

Registration is a 2-step process

If you do not have access to the Internet at home you may register anyplace you can find access to the internet, you may call the register at the school and provide the information over the phone, or contact our office.

Step 1

Submit basic information.

Preregistration Form – Follow this link and fill out the basic information

The school’s registrar will create a Powerschool Parent Account and send you an email with further instructions. This process will take place in a matter of 2-3 days while the school year is still in session. Registrations that are submitted during the summer months may have a longer delay, and if the enrollment is for the next school year it will happen during the summer time.

Step 2

Login to Powerschool using the information sent to you in the email from the registrar.

Fill out the second portion; this should take you approximately 20-30 min. If you need assistance, please contact your school, or visit our office.

Individuals with Disabilities

Provo City School District is interested in alleviating any unnecessary stress to individuals with disabilities. When students with disabilities are beginning school for the first time in a Provo school, they and their parents are encouraged to visit the school to identify barriers, which may require adaptations to accommodate their needs. To expedite any such accommodations, early contact with the Principal will be helpful.
