We are excited to welcome the Class of 2030 to begin their journey of learning in kindergarten in August 2017 in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD! Kindergarten Roundup is the designated time each year for parents to complete school registration for their children who will be kindergarteners in the fall. This year's Roundup will be May 1-5. Parents will enroll their child online through our Skyward portal then will need to bring certain documents to the school to complete registration. Each EMS ISD elementary campus has specific dates and times within that week to assist parents with completing registration. Please see below for the Kindergarten Roundup schedule as well as information to help parents prepare for kindergarten enrollment. Welcome to EMS ISD!

New Student Residency Verification Requirements

As a public school system, EMS ISD schools welcome all students who live within the boundaries of the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District and meet state age and health requirements. New students will need to verify their residency prior to the start of school.

This can be done easily by submitting a copy of one of the following acceptable documents listed below PLUS a copy of a driver's license with matching address information.

Students may not be enrolled in the district if they do not provide proof of residence in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. Failure to provide adequate information will result in immediate removal of students and may subject parents/guardians to payments of costs of educational services.

 
Proof of Residency Requirements
  • Parent or guardian’s drivers license or government issued identification
  • Proof of residency – current (last 30 days) original utility bill in parent or guardian’s name (gas, water, or electric)
  • Address on driver’s license and utility bill must match

If you do not have a current utility bill, other acceptable documents include:

  • Mortgage/rent receipts for current or previous month
  • Lease agreement dated within the last 30 days*
  • Deed of sale dated within the last 30 days*

*If your lease agreement or deed of sale is not dated within the last 30 days, please bring a current utility bill with a matching address with your driver’s license. For special circumstances, please contact the registrar at your child’s school or the Student Services office.

Students may not be enrolled in the district if they do not provide proof of residence in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. Failure to provide adequate information may result in removal of students and may subject parents/guardians to payments of costs of educational services.
