ROANOKE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO HOLD KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION JANUARY 17 & 18
Parents reminded to bring important documents when registering
ROANOKE – Roanoke County Schools will hold registration for upcoming kindergarten children, and children presently enrolled in private kindergarten who will attend first grade in public schools during the 2013-2014 school year.
All children who will be five years old on or before September 30, 2013, are eligible for kindergarten. Parents should register their children at the elementary school in their home area on Thursday, January 17 and Friday, January 18 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Parents should bring the following information when registering their children:
-child’s birth certificate
-child’s social security card
-child’s immunization record
-proof of residency (a mortgage, a pending contract, a copy of a lease, or a property tax statement will be accepted as proof of residency)*
* Note: A driver’s license or vehicle registration, or a voter ID card will not be accepted as proof of residency.
Schools must have the child’s physical and immunization record on file prior to the first day of school or students will not be allowed to attend school. Pupils who are presently attending kindergarten in Roanoke County Public Schools are not required to register. Children currently enrolled in a Roanoke County Public Schools preschool program who are eligible for kindergarten must go through the registration process. If the date of the current physical and immunization record on file exceeds 12 months prior the first day of school, an updated physical and immunization record is required before the first day of school.
