Kindergarten Roundup dates set for GCSC

Kindergarten Roundup dates have been set for students entering kindergarten in the Greencastle Community School Corporation for the 2018-19 school year. Ridpath roundup will take place Tuesday, April 10 from noon to 7 p.m. Roundup for Deer Meadow will take place Wednesday, April 11 from noon to 7 p.m. These sessions are only for incoming kindergarten students.

To be eligible for kindergarten, children must be five years old on or before August 1. Parents should enroll their children at the appropriate school for the area in which they reside. Anyone who is uncertain about which school their children will attend may call either school for assistance.

Parents need to bring the following with them: your child; a certified copy of your child’s birth certificate (not a copy from the hospital); and your child’s shot records.

Requirements for immunizations are listed on the school corporation website under the “Families” tab; then “Information Resources” link, then click on “Health Services” link, and click on “Forms” and you will find immunization requirements link to open. Parents will complete some general paperwork and the initial online process in the computer lab. Children will participate in some basic assessments for language arts and math.

Kindergarten teachers and other school staff members will be present throughout the afternoon and evening. Speech and hearing screenings are available during Roundup.

Parents will have an opportunity to complete paperwork during roundup to bring any known speech or hearing difficulties to the attention of the appropriate GCSC staff members.

Both schools encourage you to share this information with others who have children who are eligible to enroll in kindergarten. If you have any questions, please contact Deer Meadow at 765-653-3518 or Ridpath at 765-653-3315.
