Enrollment Procedures

State Law requires a child to be five years of age before October 1st to start kindergarten and six years of age to start first grade.

If the child has not attended school before, it is mandatory the parent bring proof of birth for the child, most commonly a birth certificate.

All students are to have completed a health screening examination before entering school.   This examination can be obtained from your family physician or through services provided by the county health department.  Information and forms are distributed to students enrolled in kindergarten or may be obtained at your physician’s office or the health department.

State Law makes it mandatory for parents to present an immunization certificate that shows the child has been protected per state guidelines.
