It's that time of year again to dig out birth certficates and get copies of medical records for Centennial School District's kindergarten registration.
Parents can start the process on March 6 at 7 p.m. at each of the district's elementary schools. Children must be five years old by August 31, 2013 to enroll in the 2013-2014 school year.
According to the district, parents need to bring the child's original birth certificate and a separate copy, along with four proofs of residence. A lease, agreement of sale or mortgage statement is mandatory, plus three separate proofs such as a utility bill, tax bill or pay stub.
The child's immunization history is also required and need to show that the student has received the following shots:
- 4 doses of tetanus (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday, usually given as DTP, DTaP, DT or Td)
- 4 doses of diphtheria (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday, usually given as DTP, DTaP, DT or Td)
- 3 doses of polio
- 2 doses of measles (usually given as MMR)
- 2 doses of mumps (usually given as MMR)
- 1 dose of rubella (German measles, usually given as MMR)
- 3 doses of hepatitis B
- 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine or history of the disease
Kindergarten classes will be split into morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session begins at 8:45 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m., and the afternoon session begins at 12:45 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.
If you are unsure as to which school your child will attend, call the district registrar at 215-441-6000 x 11046 for assistance. If you are unable to attend the meeting on March 6, contact the registration office after March 6 at 215-441-6000 x 11046 to arrange an appointment for registration.
