Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to the HCS School Registration site. This site organizes links to policies, forms, and information to help Hamilton Community Schools engage successfully with you and your student.

Policies and other information such as school supply lists are accessed through the Policies and Information link. This section also contains student handbooks and the technology use and safety policy. Please note that registration at Hamilton Community Schools indicates knowledge of the location and contents of applicable student handbooks and technology policies and you and your student's acceptance of those policies.

Electronic registration is accessed through the HCS Registration Form link. This electronic form is compatible with cell phones, tablets, and PCs/MACs.

The Indiana Department of Education requires local school districts to maintain proof of residency documents for students attending district schools. Proof of residency is required for new student enrollments, and any time there is an address change.

The following items can be used to verify residency: Current Utility bill, telephone bill, tax return, bank statement, mortgage statement, rental/lease agreement, medical bill, or similar information. Must show a date within the last 60 days, parent/guardian name, and address. All account information can be blacked out for privacy concerns.

The PDF Forms link provides copies of required registration forms and forms for situational or athletic needs. These forms can be printed, completed, and returned to school for registration.

The Federal Government allowed schools to offer free meals to all students during the pandemic, but Congress did not extend this benefit for this upcoming year (2022-2023). Families that are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals must apply to receive them, and all other students must pay full price for their meals. This form is also required to apply for textbook rental assistance.

The application process for free and reduced-price meals opened on July 1, 2022. Families can find the form at this link: Free and Reduced Meals Application Form or in the PDF Forms link on the left of this page.

Please contact Adam Cool with questions or concerns regarding the Free and Reduced Meals application process.


Required forms must be completed before the start of school or immediately upon a student's registration during the school year.
