 Enrollment at HPHS is a two-step process.  Our HPISD online application must be completed AND the required enrollment documents will need to be provided by uploading them to our secure upload link.  Please print the following New Student Enrollment Checklist and collect the enrollment documents listed prior to beginning the application process.


STEP #1:

Parents will first need to complete a Skyward application to create a parent/student account with HPISD.  Once the online application is completed please return to this enrollment page to upload the required enrollment documents (see Step #2 for the document upload link). 


FOR NEW SKYWARD USERS:   If you are new to the district and do not have a parent Skyward accountclick here to begin the new student enrollment process.


FOR RETURNING SKYWARD USERS:  If you already have a parent Skyward account (have other children who are current HPISD students or you are enrolling a student who previously* attended an HPISD school) click here to begin the new student enrollment process. *You may need to contact the school where your student will be attending to have your old Skyward account reactivated.



STEP #2:

Parents will upload the required enrollment documents by using the following secure upload linkClick here for New Student Enrollment Document Upload Form

It is recommended that you have your enrollment documents scanned and saved into PDF files and ready to upload prior to starting the process or accessing the New Student Enrollment Document Upload form. This will minimize any delay in processing your child’s enrollment due to missing required documents. Please print and refer to the enrollment checklist posted above to assist you in collecting the documents you will be required to upload during this step. To learn how to scan a document into a PDF file using your smartphone, click here.


Important links for new student enrollments can be found below, including information regarding enrollment of students with 504, or Special Education accommodations as well as information regarding our TAG program.



*Enrollment applications (Step 1) are not reviewed until after the subsequent enrollment documents have been uploaded and submitted (Step 2). 


After the both the application and enrollment documents have been reviewed you will receive an email of approval or notification if there are missing documents that you will be required to submit.


In order to have an enrollment appointment scheduled both Steps 1 and 2

of the enrollment process must have been completed, submitted and approved.


Enrollments are available by appointment only.

No walk-in appointments can be accommodated.

Services related to 504 Plans or Special Education:
Please be advised if your new student requires 504 or Special Education services I will see that the appropriate Coordinator is requested to be in attendance at your student’s enrollment meeting with the Counselor. Your student’s 504 or Special Ed documents should be turned in as part of the enrollment packet along with the other required enrollment documents and I will take care of forwarding any special services documents on to the appropriate Coordinator. If your student has received prior services for 504 or Special Ed please be sure to indicate this on the “Services Previously Provided” form found in “Step #5 Additional District Forms” of the enrollment application.


*If you are enrolling a new student that has been receiving 504 Accommodations at their prior school please be sure to include, with your new student enrollment documents upload, a copy of their physicians report/testing and letter/statement from the transferring school that shows the accommodations the student received during the 2020-21 school year. Not including or missing 504 Documents could delay the scheduling of your students enrollment appointment. 

*If you are enrolling a new student that receives Special Education Services please be sure to include, with your new student enrollment documents upload, a copy of their IEP records, goals/objectives/date of last ARD and any other pertinent SpEd paperwork from the transferring school.  Not including or missing SpEd documents could delay the scheduling of your student’s enrollment appointment. 



If you are interested in your new student being tested for the HPISD Talented and Gifted program, please be advised that TAG testing for new students will take place after school starts. If your student was in the TAG program at their transferring school please be sure to indicate this on the “Services Previously Provided” form found in “Step #5 Additional District Forms” of the enrollment application. Also, when you meet with your student’s counselor, for the enrollment appointment, please let the counselor know that you would like for your student to be tested for TAG.
