Thank you for allowing our School Counseling office to be the first to welcome you to Lois Hornsby Middle School, home of the Hawks! In order to make the process of enrolling your child as seamless as possible, please provide the documents below. The documents are needed for students that are new to Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools, as well as those that are transferring into Lois Hornsby Middle School from another WJCC School. Documents must be received before a schedule can be provided.

Primary documents include a utility bill (gas, water, or electric), lease/rental contract, evidence of purchase, real estate assessment, and personal property tax assessment. The name of the parent or guardian must appear on the document. Documentation must be dated within 30 days of the date of enrollment. (If the parent or guardian and the child reside with someone else or in temporary housing such as a shelter or hotel/motel please notify the registrar immediately.)

Applicable custody documentation- If your name does not appear on the child’s birth certificate, documentation that you are the custodial parent or guardian for the child will be required.
