How To Enroll Your Child

How to Enroll a Child in Our District


Student Enrollment

Welcome to the Meadow Heights R-II School District!  We are extremely proud of our students, staff and the wonderful support of our community and invite you to join our school family!

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration is typically held in the spring for the next fall term.  The elementary office will post these dates and times prior to kindergarten screening.  Later screening for kindergarten will be held at our pre -school screening (also in the spring). A kindergarten student may still register without screening providing the necessary paperwork is submitted.

The all-day kindergarten program is a totally integrated instructional program.  Parents are involved through home communications, parent-teacher conferences, and PTO activities. We encourage parent involvement and welcome parent participation.
