Enrollments / Withdraws

New Student Enrollment

Step 1 - Proof of Residency
Parents and guardians are required to prove two things: (1) that they have a legal right to enroll the student (parent's name is on the birth certificate or documents showing lawful control of the student under the order of court), and (2) that they are permanent residents of Mesquite ISD.  The following documents are required:

Group A
(1 document from this group)

  • Social Security letter / check
  • Voter registration card
  • Food stamps
  • Income tax return
  • Driver's license
  • State ID

Group B
(1 document from this group)

  • Utility bill (electric, gas or water - no cell phone bills)
  • Mortgage / deed
  • Lease agreement with landlord contact
  • Closing statement on home

Email these documents to Sherri Fortenberry:  sfortenberry@mesquiteisd.org

Step 2 - Online Enrollment
Please complete the Online Enrollment before coming to enroll. 
If you are having issues, email Sherri Fortenberry: sfortenberry@mesquiteisd.org

Upload Important Documents

  • Parent Driver's License (address must match residence)
  • Student's Birth Certificate
  • Student's Social Security Card
  • Immunization Record
  • Transcript showing all current credit (incoming 9th graders must show final report card with "promoted")
  • Withdrawal Form from previous school
  • If your child receives special services like SpEd or 504, providing current paperwork helps the counselor to assign the correct classes for your student.

    When you have completed this, please email Sherri Fortenberry:  sfortenberry@mesquiteisd.org

    Enrollment is not complete until you have been notified of completion by NMHS staff.  Failure to have all of the listed documents will delay the registration process.

The district may investigate residency as necessary (including home visits) to verify the student currently resides in the District with the intention to remain.


To withdraw your student to go to another school, parent or legal guardian must be present, and provide a valid ID (driver's license of State ID).
