Hudson School District Begins
Online Student Registration

The Hudson School District now has online registration available for students in grades K-12 who have either attended the Hudson School District during the 2013-14 school year or attended Kindergarten registration earlier this spring. Online registration will allow families to complete student and family contact and student health information electronically. These electronic forms will help reduce the hardcopy forms parents are familiar with from past years and allow for more timely and accurate information being uploaded into the school district’s student data information system.  Please click here for further information.

Parents are strongly encouraged to complete the registration process prior to Registration Day, August 18, 2014. If you need assistance, please contact the Willow River office at 715-377-3880.
