For new students entering elementary and middle schools, there will be an open house registration day Wednesday where school staff members will be on campus to help folks register, said Nan Kiel, with the school district communications staff. For details, call the school.

If you miss that day, don’t worry. “Some may do it on the first day of school and others may schedule appointments,” she said.

As for high-school-age students coming to Cobb schools for the first time, registration is by appointment only. Kiel said parents should call the specific school for more information.
