Online Registration Tips

2023-2024 School Year
Online Registration Tips


  • Online Registration is scheduled to open on Tuesday, April 25th for NEW TK-8th grade students.  Please begin to gather all necessary documentation  to upload during the Online Registration process.  If you do not have a birth certificate, please request a copy for the county your child was born in for registration purposes.
  • New parent and current parent links are different.
  • If you are registering a new student, please update information for all other children you currently have attending McCabe.  You will not need to update registrations during the summer.
  • DO NOT create a new ParentVUE account if you currently have or have had a child at McCabe in the past, even if your child is no longer at McCabe.  We’ll be happy to look up your account and help you log in.
  • If you’ve forgotten your User Name or Password for ParentVUE, contact the district office at (760) 335-5200 or email us at for assistance.
  • Current Speech Students: DO NOT register as a new student.  Contact the district office and we will move your child from Synergy’s preschool registration and have you update your child’s information and provide documentation.
  • Current TK students do not need to reapply, simply update their information and attach current bills.
  • Although not required, it is strongly recommended parents list their educational level and ethnicity during the online registration process.
  • DO NOT delete a past student.  Simply exclude to keep the child in our system for future reference.
  • Be sure to click the yellow “In Progress” bubble after adding, editing, or excluding a child.
  • Be sure all appropriate boxes are checked for each parent.
  • Include each parent/step-parent under parent, not under emergency contacts.
  • Be prepared to include contact information for AT LEAST 3 emergency contacts.  If additional contact space is needed, contact the district office and we’ll add the contacts for you.
  • Be sure to add ALL new students or update current students BEFORE clicking “Submit.”
  • Review and scroll to the bottom of the “Review/Submit” page and check the small box at the bottom of the page before submitting.
  • Interdistricts: Parents are welcome to complete the Online Registration, but this does not guarantee the interdistrict will be approved.  Interdistrict petitions are approved based on space.
  • Declarations of Residency’s must be notarized and provide necessary documentation in the district office.
  • Keep in mind the busiest times in the office are during the arrival/dismissal of students and during lunch.  Registrations during the busier times may take a bit longer.


  • Immunizations will be accepted from outside of the country.  Health and dental exams must be from a U.S. doctor.
  • Click HERE for a list of required immunizations for TK-7th grade students.


  • Health/Dental exam forms and waivers are available on the McCabe website.
  • Online Registrations will NOT be accepted without the health/dental exam(s) or waiver(s) or up-to-date immunizations.
  • Schedule physical and dental appointments NOW as it is difficult to get appointments as we get closer to the start of the school year.


  • A bus sign-up Google form will be available through the McCabe website in mid-June, once the current school year has ended.
  • TK/Kinder/1st grade students WILL NOT be released from the bus unless a parent or emergency contact is at the bus stop to take their hand.  Students will be returned to school for parent to pick up.
  • Blue Notes: Should your child have an appointment, need to leave early, or have a change plans for going home, please contact the McCabe office before 11AM for a Blue Note.  This gives the teacher enough time to have the child ready when you arrive to pick them up
  • Breakfast and lunch will be free to all McCabe students for the 2023-2024 school year.
  • Free/Reduced Lunch Applications will open online in August.  Although lunches are free, we ask that each family complete and submit a Free/Reduced lunch application regardless of income.
  • If you plan to deliver a homemake or fast food lunch to your child, please remind your child to check the office on his/her way to the cafeteria.  To avoid classroom interruptions, students will not be notified when the lunch has been delivered. 
  • ParentSquare will be accessible to parents once the student has been placed in a class, usually the Friday before the first day of school.
  • Wish Lists will be posted on the website for the 23/24 school year in June.  These items are simply suggestions for those who wish to purchase supplies. Supplies are NOT mandatory.
  • Meet the Teacher Event: The last Friday before the first day of school: August 18, 2022 at 10:00AM.  Feel free to bring the child and whoever may be picking the child up from school to meet the teacher.
