New Student Remote Enrollment Procedure

  • Dear Prospective Roosevelt Parent,

    We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during this extraordinary time. As you know, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Roosevelt Elementary School’s doors are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We, however, are committed to continuing to educate, connect, and serve our school community remotely. As a result of the closing of our buildings, parents wishing to enroll new students are asked to complete the entire process remotely until further notice. Please find important information below as it relates to specific enrollment processes:

    New Student Enrollment for the 2020-2021 School Year

    In order to obtain enrollment documents, you must first prove residency within Roosevelt Elementary School’s boundaries. Required documents can be found using the following link: Documents Required for Verification/Proof of Residency. * Please sign up for an appointment to “pick up” an electronic enrollment packet by visiting our website, https://www.smmusd.org and click on the “Enrollment” tab.* At the time of your appointment, proof of residency documentation will be submitted to roosenroll@smmusd.org. When proof of residency is verified, the enrollment staff will provide fillable enrollment documents to complete electronically.

    Once you have your electronic enrollment packet, please be sure to sign up for an appointment to “drop off” your electronic enrollment packet to us. The system will open on our website https://www.smmusd.org/roosevelt on Monday, May 4th at 4:30 pm under the “Enrollment” tab. Only completed packets that have been accepted by the enrollment office will establish preliminary enrollment for your child(ren) for the 2020-2021 school year.

    Please note, for those of you who submit proof of residency electronically, you will be required to submit updated physical hard copy proof of residency documents to our office staff within the first 3 weeks of school reopening. These physical copies must be from the same companies you provided electronically, and no more than 45 days old.

    If you are interested in childcare, please be sure to fill out the pre-enrollment form by clicking the link below. Please scan and email completed forms to Sharon Lee at slee@smmusd.org.

    Information Regarding Immunizations
    All required vaccine documentation must be scanned and submitted with the other required documents before new students can enroll in our district. If your student is missing immunizations due, please call your medical provider & schedule an appointment to get updated. Vaccine appointments are considered a necessary service and according to the website Shots for Schools: “Even with current school closures, immunization requirements for admission to school or child care in California for the 2019-2020 and 2020- 2021 school year remain in place”. If you are having trouble getting an appointment at your medical provider, please reach out to other local clinics; they may be accepting “immunization only appointments”. Please note, you will also be required to submit all required vaccine documents once schools reopen. Please refer to www.shotsforschool.org for more detailed information regarding immunization requirements.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the Roosevelt community and to meeting you all in person. Please do not hesitate to contact our enrollment clerk, Sami Reilly at roosenroll@smmusd.org, if you have questions.

    Take care, stay healthy, and stay safe.
