Enrollment & Registration Process

  • Families with school-age children who are new to the Cape Henlopen School District (including those entering Kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year) should be aware of our updated registration process for students via a central registration location at the District Office. This new process is effective May 28, 2021. 

    When registering any new student an enrollment packet is required. This packet can be downloaded and electronically completed, or printed and filled out through our website. Once the enrollment packet is completed and all accompanying documents are submitted, an in-person appointment will be scheduled to finalize the registration. 

    Required Registration Documents include:

    • Completed Enrollment packet (5 pages) (make linkable to enrollment packet online)
      • If you are registering your child for Kindergarten, you must also submit the KN Registration Questionnaire. Click here to access this additional form. (make linkable to KN questionnaire online)
    • Proof of Residency for Parent/Guardian* 
      • *If you do not have a utility bill in your name, the homeowner will be required to sign an Affidavit to complete the address verification portion of the packet.  Please contact the Central Registration Office to request additional information on this process. 
    • Student’s Birth Certificate
    • Photo ID of Parent/Guardian
    • Guardianship, Custody or Caregiver papers (where applicable)
    • Proof of Immunizations and Physical (within the last 2 years)
    • Last Report Card
    • Copy of Transcript (if entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grade)

    All registration documents may be submitted electronically to Central Registration at registration@cape.k12.de.us. When sending the documents in an email, please include the first and last name in the subject line of the student who is being registered. The documents can also all be faxed to (302) 644-6103, at the attention of Cindy Brown. If you wish to mail the documents or drop them off in person, you can do so at the Central Registration Office, 1270 Kings Highway, Lewes DE 19958. 

    In-person appointments will be scheduled once ALL forms have been received by the Central Registration Office. Appointments will be scheduled beginning in June 2021 and will be ongoing throughout the summer. It will be at this appointment that all registration documents will be finalized and signed by the parent/guardian. 

    If you have any questions, please reach out to Cindy Brown at cindy.brown@cape.k12.de.us, or at (302) 703-3509.
