The Office of Student Enrollment and Assignment will be closed through May 15. We are hoping to reopen at 8:00 a.m., May 18.
The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has restricted all student enrollment, transfers, and withdrawals at this time. In the interest of promoting the safety and well-being of our community, we are not able to enroll new students while schools are closed.
Students who have relocated are encouraged to stay connected to their previous school’s resources and remote learning opportunities.
The Office of Student Enrollment is responsible for new student registration, address changes, transfers and school assignment for new and continuing students.
You may complete the online pre-registration process in advance or at Lincoln Center. To finalize your child's registration, you must appear in person at Lincoln Center. Only parents or legal guardians may register students. Legal guardians must present court-ordered custody or guardianship documentation. Notarized statements and powers of attorney are not acceptable.

New students will be reassigned to overflow schools based on their addresses. Transportation is provided. Students reassigned in 2019-20 will continue their assignments; transportation is provided.
The Board of Education voted to close Smith Middle to students enrolled after July 18, 2019. New students enrolled after July 18, 2019 will be reassigned to other schools as outlined in Option #6 on the agenda abstract.
No neighborhoods with current Smith students will be reassigned. The new development at Carraway Village, which had no Smith students on July 18, was reassigned to Estes Hills Elementary, Phillips Middle, and East Chapel Hill High.
