Definition of "Returning Student"
As mentioned above, a student is a "returning student" if he or she did attend a District 401 school during the previous school year, including John Mills for preschool or one of our alternative schools.
For the purposes of 2022-23 enrollment, this means a student is considered "returning" if he or she was enrolled as a District 401 student during 2021-22. All returning students must enroll again if they want to attend a District school in 2022-23.
If your student did not attend a District 401 school in 2021-22, please see the New/Transfer Students page.
