Enrolling Your Child

Welcome back!  The first day of school is August 10, 2022.
This section includes helpful resources to ensure that you and your child are ready for the first day of school.  Find all of your back-to-school information, including bus stop information, open house and registration events, and more.  

2022-2023 Online Enrollment and Registration

Online enrollment for the upcoming school year is now available until Friday, July 15! This process replaces the paper forms sent home at the beginning of each school year. You will use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the Registration.

How do I get started?
Visit http://www.werrichmond.com/ and click on the PowerSchool Parent Portal icon. From the Parent Portal:
Select the student you wish to register along the top
Select the Student Registration Icon on the left side for 2022-2023.
Agree to the terms and conditions
Click Begin Forms
 
I can’t remember my login for the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you aren’t able to retrieve your login credentials using the “Having trouble signing in?” link on the Sign In page, please contact your school directly for assistance logging in to the Parent Portal. Please be patient and give it time to send the account recovery email.

Do I have to answer all the questions?
Required questions are marked as "Required".

What if I make a mistake?
If you would like to make a change, click on the underlined field or click “Prev” to return to a previous page.

I’ve completed the form, now what?
When you have finished entering your information, click “Submit.” This will send all of the information you’ve entered to the school. If you cannot click on this button, you will need to make sure that you have answered all required questions. The last page will show you how many required fields and which sections have missing/invalid data.

What if I have more than one student at Richmond Community Schools?
Do I need to do this for each child? Yes, because you’ll need to provide information that is specific for each child. We recommend that you submit one Returning Student Registration and then start another – this will allow you to “snap over” shared family information, which will save you time.

I don’t know what a question is asking.
You can contact Richmond Community Schools at (765) 973-4918 or email them at [email protected] to ask any general questions about the form or the Returning Student Registration process.
 
Help! I’m having technical difficulties.
For technical support, visit our PowerSchool Community help center or click “Help” from any form page.


If you do not have internet access or if your student is new to RCS, please visit your child’s school on July 27 (8 a.m. - 2 p.m.), July 28 (Noon-6 p.m.) or July 29 (8 a.m. - 2 p.m.) to register in person.    Locate the school to which your child will attend.

General Information about Bus Transportation

  • Students should arrive at the assigned bus stop at least ten (10) minutes before the scheduled bus stop time.

  • Parents/Guardians should assure that students dress appropriately for the weather, rain gear for inclement conditions, proper footwear for walking to and from and waiting at the bus stop.

  • The bus stop and the school bus are considered an extension of the classroom and students are expected to observe the same code of discipline expected in the school classroom.

  • Students are not allowed to eat, drink or chew gum while on the school bus.

  • Students are expected to abide by the school bus driver’s instructions while boarding the bus, on the bus and when departing the bus, at the bus stop or school location.

  • Expect school bus delays the first weeks of school due to traffic congestion around school buildings, schools regulating dismissals, and students becoming familiar with their bus drivers.

  • If you’re driving behind a bus, allow a greater following distance than if you were driving behind a car. It will give you more time to stop once the yellow lights start flashing.

  • It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.

  • If the yellow or red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended,
    traffic must stop.
