[Baypiggies] writing simple CRUD web app, suggestions needed

I need to whip up a quick registration system for a small summer school
program my wife is part of.

The requirements are very simple:

   - parent goes to site and registers their child's info (name, DOB,
   allergies, emergency contact, etc.)
   - admins (teachers) can see registrations, search, filter, etc.
   - admins can export and print registration list

I know Python pretty well, so that's not a problem, but I've always used it
in a systems programming context for work, I've not done much web stuff.

I'm pretty sure I should choose a Python web framework to do this. I've
taken some quick looks, and I think maybe Django is the tool. But I see
Pyramid, flask, and others being mentioned, and I'm having a hard time
deciding on something.

For the task I describe above should I:

   - write it in a framework? (and which one should I use?)
   - write it in pure python? (e.g. FastCGI or something similar)
   - go with some other option?

It would be so awesome if someone's written something similar that I can
reuse, I'd like minimize the amount of code I write.

The end users of the system will be parents (who sign up their kids), and
teachers who would login and see the data, so pretty much all non-technical
people. Also, if possible, we'd like to reuse the system for other similar
school-related events in the future.

Thanks in advance for any advice,
