Welcome to Online Registration!

Thank you for being a part of the Spartan family! This page will help walk you through the Online Registration (OLR) process using our main district information system, Skyward. Below you will find the content laid out in a Frequently Asked Question format. If you have further questions, please contact Ami Lawson at the district office (309) 379-6011 ext.1127.


"Where do I go to register my child for school?"

First, you should go to the school building that your child will be attending and speak with the school secretary. They will provide you with your Skyward Family Access account which is needed to continue the online registration process. You can view our District Map if you are not sure which elementary school your child will attend.

Online registration (OLR) can be found in Skyward Family Access. Here is a link to that location; LINK. If you do not know your username and/or password, first try the "Forgot you Login/Password" tool found on that site and enter the email address that you provided to your school's secretary. If you are still unable to login, you can contact your school secretary or the district office (309-379-6011 x1127) for your information.

Once logged in, you will find a registration tab along the left side of your screen. When you click on the Online Registration button, you will see some instructions, as well as a link to register your child. If you have more than one child at Olympia, you will see a separate link for each child.

"What Is the Emergency Information Section, and When Do I Check That Box?"

This section in online registration will be used to provide all district staff with critical information regarding your student. While this is not a required field, if your student has critical information to be shared, it is valuable information for the district to have. If your student does not have any critical information to be shared, please leave this area blank. Critical information is any critical/emergent information that may be beneficial for Olympia staff to know.
