Existing Hazelwood Families with a New Student

  • Enrolling Your Student (Grades KG -12)

    Hazelwood offers a full-day, tuition-free kindergarten. Children must be five years old before Aug. 1, 2021, to begin kindergarten in the fall.

    Due to COVID-19, we are asking all families to enroll their student(s) through the district's Online Enrollment, starting June 1, 2021. If you do not have access to technology to complete the process online, please call the Office of Residency at 314-953-5141.

    Upon completion of enrollment, please reach out to the registrar at the school your student(s) will attend regarding your student's schedule.

    Step 1

    Gather documentation required to complete the enrollment process:

    • Unexpired driver’s license or state identification of the parent or guardian enrolling the student
    • Birth certificate issued by the Bureau of Vital Statistics
    • Current immunization/health records
    • Transcripts and/or transfer of grades from the previous school(s) (Required prior to enrollment completion)
    • Discipline Record from the previous school(s), for grades six through twelve (Required prior to enrollment completion)
    • IEP and evaluation (if the student is receiving Special Education services)
    • Proof of residency (please see details below)

    Proof of Residency

    The Hazelwood School District requires all families to provide documentation showing they live within the district's attendance area. If you have questions about proof of residency, contact your school registrar.

    Each family must submit one item from List A and List B in the enrolling parent's name. 

    Unless a student is exempt from the proof of residency requirement, one document from each List A and List B are required. Electronic documents are permissible if they are current and contain the information required for the district to verify proof of residence (date, name, address, applicable signatures, etc.). The district has the right to request an additional proof at any time or to employ other means to verify residency. Under Missouri law, misrepresenting residency is a criminal offense. If a family’s residency status is found to be inaccurately represented or changes without notification to the district, the district may act to recover the cost of services provided.

    List A Documents

    • Deed
    • Mortgage statement dated within 30 days of the date of submission
    • Unexpired lease/rental agreement signed by landlord and tenant and including the address, apartment number, and date of rental
    • Real estate tax receipt dated within 1 year of the date of submission

    List B Documents

    (One utility bill dated within 30 days of the date of submission for verification. Bill should include customer name, service address, and billing date)

    • Electric bill, Water bill, Gas bill, Sewer bill, Trash bill, Internet bill, or Cable bill

    Step 2

    For families who are new to the district (and have never attended a Hazelwood School District school) begin the verification process by completing the 2021-2022 Quick Registration Form and submitting it by email to residency@hazelwoodschools.org

    For existing Hazelwood School District families please find the instructions for "Adding a New Student" here.
