New Student Remote Enrollment Procedure

  • April 2020

    Greetings New John Muir Families!

    I hope this letter finds you well during this very unprecedented time. As you know, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, John Muir 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 John Muir Elementary School’s boundaries. Required documents can be found using the following link: Documents Required for Verification/Proof of Residency. *Please scan and submit the required documents electronically to the following email address: nnavarro@smmusd.org. Once Proof of Residency documentation has been submitted and verified, the enrollment staff will provide fillable enrollment documents to complete electronically. The completed forms must be returned to John Muir School’s enrollment department at nnavarro@smmusd.org before May 30, 2020. These forms are required in order to 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.

    Information Regarding Immunizations
    All required vaccine documentation must be scanned and submitted with the other required documents before new students can enroll to 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 cannot wait to meet you in person and truly look forward to working with you and your family. Please do not hesitate to contact us at nnavarro@smmusd.org if you have questions.

    Take care, stay healthy, and stay safe.

    Sincerely,
    Paula Lytz
    Principal
    John Muir Elementary
