    Join the post card Greetings New Families!

    Did you know that June 2020 is "Join the Pride" month for The School District of University City?

    The District is encouraging all new families who have never attended the district to enroll and register their children online during the month of June so our staff can get to know you and also make sure you receive important information about the start of the 2020-21 school year.

    You may or may not know that the Lion is the District mascot. Our families and staff share the Heart of a Lion. When you join our Pride, you join a community where authentic relationships and strong connections matter. 

    The sooner new families register their children, the sooner they will begin to receive important communication from the superintendent and their school principals as well as critical information pertaining to the District's response to COVID-19 and the re-entry of students into its buildings. 

    Also, new families will receive a welcome packet as well as other ways to connect with U. City Schools families.

    To register first-time elementary children in the District, you will need to first look at the District's school boundaries to find your school.

    Please note: Families with children who graduated Julia Goldstein Early Childhood Education Center this spring are considered "new" families and should proceed with this online enrollment process as soon as possible. 


    Enrollment Checklist

    Starting in the summer of 2020 parents are encouraged to enroll online at www.ucityschools.org/ParentPortal. Services are available for parents or guardians unable to enroll online. Here is a checklist of what you will need to register online. It may be helpful to collect these documents before you begin the online enrollment process.

    √ Child’s Birth certificate
    √ Child’s Immunization record
    √ Photo ID (parent or guardian) along with proof of guardianship if other than a custodial parent
    √ Occupancy permit (must list the name of parent or guardian and student)
    √ Two of the following are also requested for proof of residency and enrollment:
          ∆ Current unpaid utility bill (electric, gas, water, trash, sewer)
          ∆ Current lease
          ∆  Personal property tax receipt (previous year)
          ∆   Real estate tax receipt (previous year)
          ∆  Current paycheck stub identifying employee name and address (less than one month old)
          ∆  Voter registration card (current address) 
          ∆  Property deed


    To Enroll Online Now go to www.ucityschools.org/ParentPortal

    This process will enable you to complete both enrollment forms and required yearly registration forms. It will also put your family into the full District student database called SISK-12. Once in SISK-12 you will be set to receive critical communication from the District through the summer. The enrollment process can be done in either English or Spanish.

    If you have any questions, please email parentportal@ucityschools.org or call 314-290-4078 


    If You Lack Certain Documentation and/or Digital Access to Enroll Online

    Students may be eligible to enroll even if they are unable to provide all of the requested enrollment checklist documentation listed above. Families may also lack access or the ability to enroll online.
