GLADSTONE SCHOOL REGISTRATION - ONLINE
If you did your preliminary registration prior to Aug 2, 2016, then you will receive a letter via the US Postal Service with your online registration information, including an Infosnap code. Families will receive a separate mailing and snap code for each student. Once you have your snapcode, click below to complete the online registration.
It is important to complete your registration right away so your child is fully enrolled at Gladstone Elementary. Students without complete registration risk missing out on school field trips and events and may even risk their enrollment at Gladstone Elementary.
This summer, we have been busy registering new students from every grade level! In
fact, Gladstone Elementary is now closed to permit applications for
grades K, 1, 2, and 3. Classes are filling up very quickly. If you
have a new student coming to Gladstone, get the registration in now! We
will be at capacity soon. Don't wait -- call the office and start the
registration process today!!

Gladstone provides the opportunity for our parents to receive updates via text message about dismissals and events happening at school. You can text (213) 394-4634 or text 81010 and put @gladstone5 in the message to sign up and receive texts from Gladstone Elementary.

Where are the pick up zones for students after school?
Please remember, the parking lot directly in front of Gladstone is reserved for staff only. After school, the parking lot is restricted to School Busses and Day Care Vans. At the 1:10, 2:05 and 2:50 dismissals, parents are welcome to park in the Shellman Ave parking lot or on Gladstone Street in front of the Kindergarten playground. Please remember that the Shellman parking lot is closed to incoming and outgoing traffic between 1:55 and 2:15pm. This allows us to have maximum safety for students riding the bus and students with special needs. If you ever have a question regarding where to park, feel free to email or call the school so we can help you choose an appropriate location.
