A child must be five (5) years of age on or before August 1, 2012, to be eligible for Kindergarten next year. To be eligible for first grade, a child must be six (6) years of age on or before August 1, 2012, except for those children who attended a year of Kindergarten previously in another school corporation.

During the orientation session, a pre-school screening check will be administered to each child. All children must be screened before being admitted to Kindergarten for the first time. Those children who are not screened during the orientation will be screened the first week of enrolling their child in Kindergarten this fall. Parents MUST present the child’s official birth certificate and immunization record as required by law. (An official birth certificate may be obtained from the Board of Health in the county in which your child was born.) It is also requested that your child’s Social Security number be on file. These records will be copied and returned to you.

Each school is taking a survey to determine the number of students who will be participating in orientation. Please notify the school if you have a child or if you know of a child who will be entering school next year.
