ONLINE REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Once all the required registration documents have been submitted, you will be given instructions on how to complete your student's registration online through PowerSchool Enrollment. The online portion of registration should be completed as soon as possible. If the number of enrolling students exceeds the number of spaces available in a particular grade level, PowerSchool Enrollment submission dates will be used to determine enrollment priority. Students may need to be overflowed to a nearby school if enrollment numbers exceed the number of spaces available.


ON-SITE STUDENT CARE INFORMATION

If you are interested in enrolling your child in our on-site student care program, click HERE to visit the Before & After School Student Care webpage for detailed information about the Wait List & Registration process. Please note, getting on the wait list does not guarantee a spot in Student Care. As is the case at many schools in the district, the Student Care Program at Gold Ridge is impacted and there is a significant wait to secure a spot. If you submit a Wait List Form and a spot becomes available, you will be contacted by the Student Care office to complete the registration process.

The window to submit a Wait List Form for the 2022-2023 school year closed on May 27, 2022 at 5:00pm.

An alternative to on-site student care is private, off-site childcare. Many private childcare facilities in Folsom offer transportation to and from Gold Ridge at all the different grade-level arrival and dismissal times.
