New Student Enrollment for Fall 2020
Open Enrollment 

Registration for incoming kindergartners is now underway. All students must be registered at their home school—also called “school of residence.” Go to the school office to register your student.
You can apply to attend a different school — NVUSD offers a number of specialized programs at different schools, and we encourage you to choose the best fit for your child. If you wish to apply for enrollment in a school that is not your home school (called "Open Enrollment"), you will be able to do so AFTER you register. More info:

Open Enrollment for Fall 2020 is October 28 - November 29, 2019.
New student? Register first at your home school
Tour now! Check school websites for tour dates and schedules.
Decide now! Review school websites for program information.
Open Enroll! Apply online between Oct 28 and Nov 29, 2019

Aeries Parent Portal News

November and December Lunch Menus 
More parents will receive access to the Aeries Parent Portal. There are many parents who never received the initial email with their Aeries Parent Portal login information, meaning their account stayed inactive. To remedy this problem, and give those parents access to the portal, it is necessary for NVUSD to delete the inactive account and create a new one. Affected parents will receive an alert from Aeries notifying them of the deleted account, as well as a second alert providing them with login information to their newly created account. The only action required by these parents is to activate their portal account using the new login information. Questions? Please contact your school office.

Aeries Mobile App. The Aeries Mobile Portal honors the same Aeries security and portal options that provide the information available to the parents and students when they access the Student Portal on a browser.
The Aeries Mobile Portal App is available for both iOS and Android phones. More information
