Welcome Back, Cardinals!

We are excited for the opportunity to partner with your family to provide a high-quality education for your child, while instilling in them our core values of integrity, loyalty, honesty, humility, and hope.

Outlined below is the Returning Student Registration process for students who are already enrolled at Melissa ISD, who will be returning for the 2022-2023 school year. You will also find detailed information about the Melissa ISD attendance boundaries and requirements. As a reminder, your child must live within the Melissa ISD attendance boundaries to attend Melissa Schools.

Attendance & Documentation

Most information for returning students will automatically populate in the online registration system based on existing school records. However, all returning families must provide current Proof of Residency documentation each year when completing Returning Student Registration.

Before you begin the online registration process, please scan or take a photo of one of the following documents to have it ready to upload when you are prompted to provide Proof of Residency:

  • a copy of a current utility bill (i.e. electric, gas, or water),

  • a current lease from within the last 30 days,

  • closing papers from within the last 30 days, or

  • other qualifying documentation outlined below.

(Note: Once you select the "Submit" button, you will not be able to make any changes to your information or upload any additional documents. Please only select the "Submit" button once you have provided your Proof of Residency.)


Incoming Kindergarten students who attended the Melissa ISD Pre-K/ECSE program are considered returning students and can be registered for school using the Returning Student Registration process.

Parents/guardians of Kindergarten students must complete a Home Language Survey in-person at Kindergarten Round-Up, or in-person at the school, in order to finalize Kindergarten registration.
