Skyview announces registration changes

This year, Skyview High School is implementing a new process for preregistered students to get their schedules and lockers, and pay fees. Students will need to stop by the school according to the following schedule:

Monday -- Seniors from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and juniors from noon to 3:30 p.m.

Tuesday -- Sophomores from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and freshmen from noon to 3:30 p.m. During the freshmen time, there will be an open house, offering root beer floats and tours of the building.

During these times, students can pay fees, show proof of immunizations, pick up class schedules, sign up for lockers, purchase new student activity passes and pick up parking stickers.

Counselors will be available to help students with incomplete schedules. Returning students who want to make schedule changes must wait until after the first day of class to do so.

Students who are new to the district and school will be able to register for classes during the listed time, provided they can show proof of immunizations in accordance with Alaska state law.
