Corvallis and Philomath School District Sites
In order to enroll your children in Corvallis Public Schools, you will need to bring documents and immunization certificates from your home country. For more information, contact the Corvallis School District at 541-757-5811.
If you are not sure about which school attendance area you live in, please call the school district office, 541-757-5811. School district policy allows parents to request the school they would like their children to attend. Parents of students on transfer are responsible for transportation to and from school unless space is available on a district bus that travels an appropriate route. If you plan to register your child at a school outside the attendance area, request a student transfer form when you register your child.
To complete the registration forms, you should bring:
Children who live close to school may walk or be transported by parents. Those who live one mile from the building (unless some hazard exists, such as a busy highway) may ride the bus that takes all elementary students to and from school in the morning and afternoon. Parents of children in half-day programs, however, will need to provide their own mid-day transportation.
Supply lists vary from school to school. Check with your school. Remember school offices are closed from the end of June until mid-August. District-wide lists published in the Gazette-Times or posted in stores may not reflect the specific needs of your child's classroom.
Oregon law requires that children be adequately immunized against diphtheria tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, hepatitis B, and rubella. On registration day parents must bring a child's immunization records to school. School staff will then advise you about needed immunizations. Most of them will need to receive a booster dose of diphtheria/tetanus vaccine and polio vaccine to meet the requirements of the law. Those who have not had one dose of measles/mumps/rubella vaccine will need one dose. Visit the Oregon Department of Public Heath's Vaccines And Immunizations website for additional information.
To be ready for school, make plans now to have your child immunized. Please do one of the following:
