ANNOUNCEMENTS  
 

TRASH AND RECYCLE DUMPSTERS

It has come to our attention that the public has been placing their waste in Norton’s trash and recycle dumpsters.  Please note that public use of these dumpsters is strictly prohibited.  With nearly 600 Norton students and staff, we fill the dumpsters regularly and the space taken by public waste creates a problem.  If you have waste that does not fit in your trash/recycle carts at home, please go to www.cityofallen.org for information on trash/recycling options. Thank you.
 

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

You are now able to begin the enrollment process using Allen ISD’s New Student Online Enrollment system. Please visit http://allenisd.org/enrollment for complete instructions and parent tutorial. After you have submitted your student enrollment application online, you may schedule an appointment to complete the enrollment process with the Registrar,Kathy Stone, by calling 972-396-6918 or e-mailing her at Kathryn_Stone@allenisd.org.  If you have a friend that has not registered their child for Kindergarten, please have them contact Mrs. Stone at their earliest convenience.  Thank you.
