    Step 2:

    • After you complete your Online Application, your Elementary building will reach out to you to schedule an appointment. 


    In order to enter any of our buildings, the general public must wear a mask.  This is a preventative measure to keep both our staff and community safe and follows the Governor's "No mask, no work, no service, no exception" which is the first of five general protocols for businesses to follow as they re-open.

    At your given appointment time, while practicing social distancing/wearing of a mask, you will be required to turn in your Kindergarten Enrollment Checklist documents. The checklist can be found above.  Copies can be made at the school during this time.


    • If you are interested in a transfer to another elementary within the District, that must be made through an intra-district request. That form can be requested from the elementary school based on your address or by calling Heather Shuttleworth at the Student Services Department at 937-259-6603.  Your student must, however, be registered in your building of residence prior to the request.  These applications are on a first-come, first-served basis. Approval is based on space availability within the requested grade/school. 

    If you have any other questions, please contact Heather Shuttleworth @ heather.shuttleworth@madriverschools.org.
