Registration Procedures for BH-BL Pupils
Hills-Ballston Lake School District does NOT accept
non-resident or tuition-paying students. All pupils
must be legal residents of the school district.
Parents of new elementary
pupils should be aware that their child will
probably -- but not always -- attend the elementary
school that is closest to their home. In order to
keep class sizes as small as possible across the
district, we have a few cases each year where new
elementary children are placed in a different school
with smaller classes. Mrs. Martini (see below) can
answer questions about this policy.

Hills-Ballston Lake Schools is to document that
students are legal residents of the district.

to the child's new school, along with the child's
health and immunization records, last report card or
