Registration tips

  • If you are having trouble uploading your documents during the application process, please take a CLEAR/FULL (actual size) picture of the documents and call or email Fairmont for information on how to send them by email. Please do not bring documents to the office in person.

  • The Fairmont office staff will send an email to let you know if your child has a space or not in the couple of weeks following enrollment.

  • Please do not call the office asking if your child has a space. Enrollment time is extremely busy for school staff and they will not be able to tell you what number your child is on the list.

  • Please make sure the email you are registering with is one you check regularly, both Fairmont and the district send out all information to those email addresses.
