How do I enroll a new student for the upcoming school year?

We would like to remind you that the district is upgrading the enrollment process to an online format for the 2017-2018 school year. This change will allow you to fill out annual registration forms online prior to District Residency/Enrollment Event rather than the paper forms that in the past were mailed to your home. District Residency/Enrollment Events will be held July 26th and July 27th, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Pleasant Hill High School for all families of the Pleasant Hill R-III School District.

Beginning July 5th, online registration will open for you to complete your family’s forms. You will receive an email that day to remind you to register online. A link to the registration will be provided in the email along with additional instructions.

To make Residency/Enrollment Event more efficient and less time consuming for you, please complete the online registration no later than midnight on July 25th. If you do not have access to a computer to fill out the registration forms, there will be computers available at Pleasant Hill High School on the nights of Residency/Enrollment. For families without computer/internet access at home, there will be a computer available for registration at Central Office, located at 318 Cedar Street, prior to Residency/Enrollment Event. Central Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Another option for families is to utilize the computers available at the public library.

We ask families to attend on a designated night according to the oldest child’s last name. If you are unable to attend on the scheduled night you may attend the other night.  

Last Name:  A-K July 26th, 1:00-7:00 p.m.
Last Name:  L-Z July 27th, 1:00-7:00 p.m.

Residency will need to be verified with a current utility bill (gas, water, or electric) that is no more than 30 days old.  The bill must include your name and physical address.  Shut off notices will not be accepted as proof of residency.

Any family not able to attend on July 26th or July 27th will need to come to Central Office, located at 318 Cedar Street, beginning Monday, July 31st, to begin the residency/enrollment process, followed with a visit to each building your children attend to complete the process.

We will send reminders and additional information as Residency/Enrollment Event approaches to help you prepare for the 2017-2018 school year.

Building principals, counselors, secretaries, nurses, food service and bus company staff will be on hand to offer assistance and answer any questions.

School offices will open July 24, 8am to assist parents with any needs they may have for the upcoming year
. All school offices will be closed on July 26 and July 27 for enrollment.
