Existing Families with a New Student

Kindergarten Enrollment

Mehlville offers full-day, tuition-free kindergarten. Children must be five years old before Aug. 1, 2020, to begin kindergarten in the fall.  Each January, Mehlville elementary schools begin accepting kindergarten enrollment for the following school year. 

Parents must have a Parent Portal account to enroll a new student via the online application.  If you do not have a Parent Portal account or have forgotten your username and/or password, please contact your child's school.
