Meet DeSoto County Schools' Newest Assistant Principals
For many students, these individuals may be the ones who see them safely on and off the bus each day, protect them from bullies or keep order in the cafeteria. For some children, they are the larger-than-life “sheriffs” – respected figureheads in the school.
Whether your child is a returning student from the previous school year or a brand new student to DeSoto County Schools, his/her enrollment begins by registering online.
Parents of returning students can register online for their child’s zoned school with their InfoSnap code, or come to the DeSoto County Schools’ Administrative Office at 5 East South Street, Hernando, MS, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 pm. Parents of new students to DeSoto County Schools can simply create an account using InfoSnap and register on line. If a residency affidavit is required, the parent or guardian must come to the Administrative Office. If returning on an affidavit, they may provide all updated proofs at their school.
