Parents new to Toms River Regional Schools or those returning to any of the schools in our district must register their children at our Central Registration Office. We are located at 54 Washington Street in downtown Toms River, across from Town Hall. The staff at our office will be able to answer most questions regarding the schools as well as provide information regarding necessary paperwork needed for registration. It is not necessary to bring your child. You need only bring the required documents.

Here are three situations that make a family eligible to send children to Toms River Regional Schools:
  • If you and your child are residents of Toms River, Beachwood, Pine Beach, or South Toms River (i.e. you own, lease, or rent a home or apartment), bring copies of the four (4) documents for verification of residency detailed in the Application for Registration- Proof of Residency Checklist. 
  • If you are not a resident of Toms River, Beachwood, Pine Beach, or South Toms River, but are legally domiciled with your child in the home of a resident, the resident (homeowner) must provide the four (4) documents for verification of residency detailed in the Application for Registration- Proof of Residency Checklist AND the parent or guardian must provide two (2) documents for verification of residency as detailed in the Application for Registration- Admission of Domiciled Student Checklist. Bring both forms to help document what you have provided.
  • If you, the parent, are not a resident of nor domiciled in Toms River, Beachwood, Pine Beach, or South Toms River (read two descriptions above), but a Toms River resident is the legal guardian of your child, the resident/guardian (homeowner) must provide four (4) documents for verification of residency as detailed in the Application for Registration- Proof of Residency Checklist and the Affidavit of Resident Custodian; AND the parent must submit the Affidavit of Non-Resident Parent form. All three forms are needed.
  • There are also special situations related to child protective services, court orders, and the military. Please call our staff at Central Registration so that they may assist you.

Be advised that in addition to the Department of Education Regulations N.J.A.C. 6A:22 prohibiting such conduct, New Jersey State Law, specifically N.J.S.A. 18A:38-1(c), provides that any person who fraudulently allows a child or another person to use his/her residence for school admission purposes is guilty of a Disorderly Persons Offense punishable under the New Jersey Criminal Code.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FORM

State statute 18A:40-4 requires that all students have a physical examination by a physician. Your physician will complete this form upon the conclusion of your child's physical. You may still register if your child has not yet had a physical, but the completed physical examination report must be signed by the physician and submitted to the school prior to starting school.
