Welcome to Tangipahoa Parish School System! Parents/Guardians of new students to our school system are required to register and provide two (2) proofs of their physical 911 address. A student is assigned to a school in his/her home attendance zone, which is based upon the 911 physical residence of parent/guardian. Use the School and Bus Lookup Tool in the left menu to find out which school your student will attend. Please follow all steps listed under “Registration and Admissions”. To avoid delay in enrolling your student, please bring all required documents with you at the time of registration.
Our Student Registration Office is located on the first floor of the Tangipahoa Parish School System Special Services Center, 1745 Southwest Railroad Avenue in Hammond.
Office hours will be 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Any person who presents or is involved in presenting and/or processing of any document that is falsified or otherwise constitutes a fraudulent document presented for the purpose of having a student assigned to a District school for which the student is not zoned to attend under the District's desegregation orders shall be subject to the penalties for perjury or for making a false statement in a federal legal proceeding.
