2022-2023 Registration Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Beginning Monday, August 1st at 9:00am, South Central will open online registration via Harmony Family Access. We would like to remind you to check your demographics, update phone numbers, update emergency contacts and their phone numbers, update your email addresses, and your home/mailing address.

There are some registration forms that will need to be electronically signed. Some forms will need to be signed annually when you register online (Parent Right to Know; Active Duty; Residency Information; Work Survey; CTE; Transportation Needs). The forms are listed in the online registration section in Harmony Family Access.

If you have already registered your kindergartner, you will not have to come into the school for new student registration BUT you will need to log into your Harmony Family Access account to update demographics and fill out the consent forms. You will receive an email with your student's registration code on Friday, July 29th.

All new students are required by the state to provide proof of residency. Any returning students who have moved to a new address from the one listed in Harmony are also required to provide proof of residency. Your proof of residency should be one of the following documents: Current (within the last 60 days) utility bill, telephone bill, tax return, bank statement, mortgage statement, rental/lease agreement, medical bill, and/or other official information that verifies your address. A driver's license and mailed advertisements do NOT meet the residency verification requirements set forth by the Indiana Department of Education.

Beginning Tuesday, July 26th, the school will be scheduling appointments for NEW STUDENT registration on Tuesday, August 2nd, Wednesday, August 3rd, and Thursday, August 4th. Please call the school to schedule an appointment. On those days, we also welcome families that cannot register from home to come to the school to register students. Please call to schedule an appointment. Also, please bring your username and passwords with you.

If you have forgotten your password, you will need to click the "forgot my password" link and Harmony will send an email to help you. Unfortunately, we are unable to retrieve usernames and passwords at the school.

We are looking forward to a great school year ahead!

Thank you,

South Central Schools

Return to Traditional Lunch Benefit Eligibility

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has stopped the federal meal waivers that have allowed schools to serve free meals to all students for the past two years. This upcoming school year, South Central will return to traditional edibility requirements for free, reduced, and paid benefit applications. If you do not receive an email notification by July 29th that your student(s) is qualified for free meals because of SNAP or Medicaid, please fill out a new application through Harmony Family Access. Applications will be available once online registration opens on August 2nd. Paper applications are also available in the school offices.

Students who are not approved for free or reduced-priced meal benefits before the start of school will be classified as paid and meal charges will begin the first day of school. Full pay breakfast will be $1.50 and full pay lunch will be $2.60. More detailed information about school meals for this upcoming school year will be coming soon.

Thank you,

Karen Hagenow, Food Service Director

2022-2023 After-School Care Program

After-School-Care

Dear South Central Elementary Families,

For the past several years, South Central has partnered with the LaPorte YMCA to offer after-school care for our students. Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, the YMCA will no longer offer after-school care for our students.

Little Dreamers, located at 7407 W. US-30 in Wanatah, has space available for South Central Elementary students who need after-school care. If you utilize Little Dreamers for after-school care, your child will be able to ride the bus from South Central to Little Dreamers on a daily basis. All the details of the program including the cost should be discussed with Sandra Wood, owner of Little Dreamers. The phone number for Little Dreamers is (219) 733-2800. We are very grateful for Sandra and her willingness to host our students for after-school care. If your child will be attending after-school care at Little Dreamers, you will need to let the elementary office know the days your child will be riding the bus to Little Dreamers.

I hope you are all having a great summer!

Sincerely,

Nick Kimmel, Elementary Principal
