Online Pre-Registration (OLR) is a self-service parent portal that allows parents and guardians to pre-register students online anytime from anywhere. OLR will be used in place of paper registration forms. The school will contact parents and guardians to schedule an in-person appointment to finalize the registration process.
- Parents and Legal Guardians can:
- create/activate a ParentVue account to use Online Pre-Registration.
- complete all pre-registration information online from any internet enabled device.
- save their work and return to finish later.
- pre-register all their children new to NNPS at the same time.
- upload supporting enrollment documentation.
- monitor the status of the pre-registration after it is submitted.
- Pre-registration screens guide parents/legal guardians and ensure that all screens and fields are completed.
- Every NNPS School has a computer available for online pre-registration for families that wish to complete the process at the school.
- Students will be pre-registered at their zoned school.
Important Enrollment Information
To help ensure that schools and students are well prepared for the first day of school, parents are encouraged to register their child or children at their zone school as soon as possible. Doing so helps our schools and teachers be equipped and ready to make each student's first day pleasant and productive.

VISIT YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL
Once your pre-registration information has been reviewed, your child’s school will contact you by phone or email. To finalize registration, you must visit the school in person to provide your proof of identification and any additional information your child’s school may require.
Beginning April 15, all schools will have office hours every Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parents will be able to register and withdraw their children by appointment only. Parents may request an appointment by visiting the "contact us" link at the top of the school's webpage or by calling the school and leaving a message. A school administrator or office professional will contact the parent to set up an appointment time. Parents are asked to bring a photo ID to their scheduled appointment and should avoid coming to the school if they are ill.
