Middle School Enrollment Steps for HSD Residents

Attending Your Home Middle School

  1. Input your address to locate your home school. Use the Locate My School link.

Middle School Enrollment Steps for Currently Enrolled Non-HSD Residents

  • Parents received a letter informing them to renew the permit for the next academic school year.
  • August 1-16, 2024: Inter-district (from another school district to the HSD) incoming permits are due.
  • Non-HSD residents are not eligible for open enrollment.


New to Hawthorne School District?

Your student is considered a "New" Student for the 2024-25 school year if:

  • They were not enrolled in an HSD school during the 2023-24 school year or any year prior.

If your student was previously enrolled in HSD, but not currently attending a school in the Hawthorne School District, your student is not classified as a New Student. Please visit your local school site office and ask for support to complete the enrollment process.
