Registering Your Child for the Residential Campus
Parents are required to complete all registration materials before their child enters NMSBVI. Included in the packet of registration forms parents complete annually are forms relating to tra­vel and various permission forms. The permission forms are used as guidelines as circumstances require. Copies of these forms are maintained in the education department and in the residential life department. Parents are asked each year to complete forms concerning their child's health and return them to NMSBVI at the beginning of the school year. Please be aware that your child's medical history, your family physician's name, address, and phone number, any recurrent or chronic medical problems, any special diets or allergies, and a current immunizations record must be on file each year. It is difficult and at times impossible to provide your child with medical attention without this information.
Please provide Health Services with current medical insurance information. 

Communication is the key to good relations between the home and school.  NMSBVI staff members make frequent calls to students' homes. It is imperative that parents inform the school of any change in general information (e.g., address, telephone number, student permissions, etc.). 

To notify the school of changes, call the education office:  (575/800) 437-3505, extension 4427.
