Annual Residency Verification



Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Irvine Unified School District will once again require residency verification for all IUSD students enrolling for the 2017-18 school year.

By completing the following forms for each of your students, you will be making a formal declaration that your child lives within IUSD’s attendance boundaries.

2017-18 Residency Verification and Affidavit

Hard copies are available at the school site upon request. For your added convenience, the forms are also linked above and attached to this email, allowing you to fill them out and print them at home. Completed residency forms should be turned in to your child’s school by the school’s assigned deadline. A list of acceptable documents included on the Residency Verification Form can also be found by clicking here.

If you plan to enroll a kindergartner or a new student, please visit the IUSD website at http://iusd.org/education_services/KindergartenStudentExpectations.html for necessary pre-enrollment forms.




Traffic Safety

crossing guard

Our parking lot can accommodate our staff but our school was designed for a walking community. With many parents driving, we are experiencing excessive traffic and delayed pick up for kids while fostering an atmosphere that could become dangerousfor our community. After observing our traffic patterns, I would like for you to consider one or more of the following options in order to provide a safer environment for our Northwood students, staff and parents:


  • Walk - It's healthy, environmentally friendly, and a great way to bond with others.

​ Parents can wait in one of three areas:

  1. ​In front of the school
  2. Next to the park (must stay on grass - the blacktop is for instructional use)
  3. Next to entrance off Lewis (please stay near wall)
  • Park on the street OR in our our parking lot (pick up only) - Get out and walk your child to your car. This may cost a few extra minutes, but it will reduce the traffic back up and ensure your child is safely boarded inyour vehicle.
  • Park Behind the School - There is a long stretch of sidewalk. If you drive in off of Trabuco, left on Lewis and then on Lindberg, you can park along the long stretch behind our school. Agree on a meeting place and have your child scan and look for your car behind our school - this is a great practice for upper grade students
  • Please be respectful to our neighbors and do not block their driveway.

Please note that there is no supervision for students and students must be picked up within 10 minutes of dismissal.
