District says Montclair High School students will have to re-register and prove their residency

George Wirt:

Montclair High School students will have to get their parents to re-register them and prove they live in Montclair or they won’t be allowed back in the classroom when school starts in September.
According to an advisory issued late Thursday afternoon by the Montclair School District, the re-registration is part of an effort to “verify, update and document the residency of all students currently enrolled in the Montclair Public Schools.”
The statement, issued by Assistant Schools Superintendent Felice Harrison, said the parents or guardians of all MHS students will be required to fill out registration forms and “submit residency verification documents.”
The registration will take place at both the Montclair High School main building at 100 Chestnut St., and the George Inness Annex at 141 Park Street, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. There are no Friday hours.
