Things to know:
It is important to complete the entire online enrollment application for your child. If parents do not complete the process, their child is not actively enrolled in the district.
If you need assistance in completing the online enrollment application, please call the office at the school your student will be attending.
If you do not have access to an appropriate device, please call the school to schedule an appointment to use a district computer to complete your new enrollment or family information update. We will be happy to assist you in completing the online process if needed.

Documents that must be sent to the building office prior to the start of school:
During the admission process, the district may require the parent/guardian to provide documentation of the student's age for the purpose of determining whether the student satisfies state entrance age requirements. Such documentation may include, but is not limited to, a birth certificate, immunization records, a baptism certificate, any government-issued identification or an affidavit sworn by the parent/guardian in the presence of a district official. (Proof of Age: See Policy JEC-1 for acceptable forms of documentation)

Admission of Resident Students
All students, five to twenty-one years of age, who reside within the boundaries of the District may attend District schools tuition-free. In order to “reside” within the District, the student must be physically domiciled within District boundaries. The domicile of a minor child is generally the domicile of the student’s parents or guardian.
A student may only register in the District if the student provides proof of residency or if the student or parent requests a waiver from the Board of Education on the basis of hardship or good cause. Parents will be required to sign a “Proof of Residency” form at the time of enrollment. If the Superintendent has reason to suspect that the admission of a student will create an immediate danger to the safety of others, a hearing will be convened. At the hearing, the District will determine whether the student may enroll.
Designated attendance areas for all schools shall be established by the Meramec Valley R-III Board of education to make optimum use of district school facilities. Students residing within the attendance area of a school shall attend that school except as otherwise provided by the policies of the Meramec Valley R-III Board of Education.
