Parent-Only and Socially Distancing Registration 2021-2022



The Garfield Heights City Schools will host a by-appointment, parent-only, mandatory face mask, and socially distanced Registration at the Board of Education (Building A) 5640 Briarcliff Drive.  For the health and wellness of all parents and staff, THE PARENT/GUARDIAN WILL HAVE THEIR TEMPERATURE TAKEN WHEN THEY ARRIVE FOR THEIR APPOINTMENT AND THE PARENT/GUARDIAN WILL SIGN IN TO RECORD THEIR TEMPERATURE. Hand sanitizer will be available. If a parent is found to have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher (per CDC Guidelines), even if the parent shows no signs or symptoms, he or she will NOT be allowed to stay for the appointment and will be required to reschedule.

Once again, this is a PARENT-ONLY-REGISTRATION in order to remain compliant with the State of Ohio Board of Health COVID 19 safety precautions. 

Please keep in mind that any parent who brings children with them to the appointment will not be permitted to register. Garfield Heights City Schools are dedicated to staying safe while also providing opportunities for our students to enroll in our district, while remaining compliant, for the 2021-2022 school year.
