Residency / Enrollment
Proof of residence must be provided for every student who plans to attend Camden Elementary in the fall of 2017. Parents are asked to provide this information each year and to update other enrollment documents. As our school grows, this procedure will help maintain the Camden Elementary boundaries set by the Madison County School District.
Residency information is requested by August 1, 2017. The more promptly you provide the information, the more efficiently classroom assignments may be made.
Bring your documentation to the office between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. during the school year and 8:00 a.m.-1 p.m. during the summer. The office is open Monday through Friday (unless there is a holiday). If you have questions, please call the school office at 662-468-2833.
