This includes both Charms and Final Forms online systems as well as new Health &amp; Well Being forms. Registration information will be covered at the New Member meeting on April 28th and we have 2 additional Registration Information Sessions scheduled on Thursday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 12th. We strongly encourage at least one parent/guardian to attend any one of these sessions that best fits your schedule. There are a number of changes to the registration process this year including new forms for student Health &amp; Well Being, Updates to Central Medications, and a new requirement this year for student physicals. Chromebooks will be available at each session (or bring your own device) so you can complete your online registration.</span></p> <p style="font: 400 11pt/1.38 Arial; text-align: justify; color: #000000;
