Step 1: Complete Normal Park Registration form

You will need to submit a Google form that is specific to Normal Park students. This is NOT optional. Both zoned and magnet students will need two proofs of residence ready to upload before you start. Scan in or take a picture of a utility bill, cell phone bill, bank statement, etc. Because you are uploading forms, a Google account is necessary to log in. You may have to create one if you don't already use Gmail or have a Google account.
