Open Enrollment Help for Returning Students

Some tips to make open enrollment easier:

  • We recommend you use the browser Chrome

  • No snapcode is needed. Please enter your child’s birthdate in that screen.

  • If your student is returning to Stevenson or Mistral, please do not request a school. Your school is already assigned.

For help with online enrollment issues, please contact Student Services at [email protected]  or 650-526-3500 x 1008 (Student Services)

  • If your second child is not linked to your Powerschool account

  • Trouble uploading a document

  • Difficulty with the back/submit button

Thank you for your patience and support.
