  • Important Information Regarding Your Student’s Enrollment for the 17-18 School Year!
    You should receive a letter early in the week of July 17th from the San Mateo Union High School District informing you that the 2017-18 Online Annual Enrollment System powered by InfoSnap is now open! The On-Line Annual Enrollment process performs two important functions. First, it gives you the opportunity to verify for us that the information we have about your student is correct. Second, it gives you the opportunity to provide us with important items such as Health and Medical information which will allow us to better serve your student. It is very important that the Parent/Guardian complete this information. Our on-line enrollment site is safe and secure! Please note: ALL students, grades 9-12, MUST complete the On-Line Annual Enrollment process! The deadline for completing the On-Line Annual Enrollment is Friday, July 28, 2017. Again, it is very important that the On-Line Annual Enrollment be completed by the student’s parent/guardian! Please be advised that the On-line Annual Enrollment must be completed prior to picking up your student’s class schedule!
