2020-21 New Families Registration

Please visit this website:  Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year for MPS District updates on the coming school year.

New Families Registration Information for the 2020-21 school year will be provided here on how and when to register your High 5-er, Kindergartener, and new 1st through 5th grade student(s) at Whittier.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will registration be held? This date has not been determined since we are currently closed due to COVID-19. We hope to be able to do a robocall once we have the date set. Information will also be available on our website. For now, we know that registration will not take place until August or September – stay tuned for more information.

We have your registration forms from the Placement Center, and we will have those and the rest of our information packet available for you to complete when we are able to see you at Whittier.

If you have any questions, please leave a message at our main office, 612-668-4170, and someone will get back to you.

We aren't able to have the physical form completed by our doctor's office before the first day of school or are not able to make an appointment for our child's 5 year physical. What should we do? Typically, we ask that the physical form be turned in before your student starts school in September. Due to circumstances caused by COVID-19, we will be more lenient this year if you are not able to get everything completed right on time.

I have a health-related question. Who should I contact? Feel free to contact Akpene Asempa, School Nurse, at akpene.asempa@mpls.k12.mn.us or 612-692-0062.

We are delighted to have you and your child join the Whittier Family, and we look forward to meeting you in person!
