Residency Verification

schoolresidencyBeginning on May 20, 2016 we will be conducting our annual residency verification for all students continuing at Camarena Elementary. This process is a requirement and it helps our school ensure that all students are placed appropriately based on their home address. In addition, the residency verification ensures your child’s place at Camarena. We will continue to accept residency verification through June 3, 2016.  If you do not complete the residency verification by June 3, 2016, we will assume your child is not returning to Camarena for 2016-2017 school year and his/her place will be give to another student. Please review the Residency Verification Letter sent home with your child last week to understand which documents are necessary for residency verification. You may find a copy of the letter on the link below.
