Re-enrolling a student who previously attended a Washougal school?
If you’re re-enrolling a student, you don’t need to fill out the New Student Online Enrollment form.  Simply contact your child’s school office, and let them know you want to re-enroll.  They can use previously provided information to reactivate your student in our system, and will guide you through the process.  If you want to do this during the summer break, please reach out to Chiska Leigh at District Office, and she can help.

Please note:  Currently enrolled students do NOT need to fill out a registration form for the next school year! 

Please gather requested documents and make sure you provide them to the school office as soon as you can. Your child’s registration at the school will not be complete without these essential components. 

Washougal School District uses the Skyward system’s Family Access to process new student enrollment.  

  • If you currently have students enrolled in our district, and are enrolling a younger sibling or other additional students, you can log into your Skyward account and choose “New Student Online Enrollment” in your Family Access menu.
