Important Notice Regarding Registration for the Upcoming School Year:
The Petal School District will be using a new online process as part of student registration for the 2015-2016 school year.  All parents/guardians will be required to complete part of the registration process online.  Additional information about this new process will be sent by email to all parents/guardians who provided an email address during the school year.  Letters will be sent through the US Mail for those who did not provide email addresses. Please expect to receive that information within the next few days.  All returning kindergarten, first and second grade students, as well as, pre-registered Kindergarten students will need to complete forms online. Once you follow the link, you will be prompted to create an InfoSnap account.  You will then check the current information, make changes as needed, and update your child's medical history.  We are very excited about this new online process and know you will be as well.  These online forms will provide us with much of the information we need for your child this school year and eliminate a great deal of written paper work for you!  Be sure to check your inbox and SPAM/junk mail over the next couple of days for the link to register your child.  Information will also be posted on the Petal School District webpage and Facebook page regarding dates to bring your two proofs of residency to complete the registration process.  

The Petal Primary School Library will be open June 3-July 22 every Wednesday, 8:00-3:00.
