The following items are needed for registration:

  1. The following immunizations and medical tests are required by law before a child can be enrolled in school: 
  • Minimum of 3 IPV (oral polio vaccine) and 4 DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) if both are given after the 4th However, a child will be fully immunized with 4 IPV and 5 DPT, regardless of the age in which the last dose was received.
  • Two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) administered after the 1st
  • One PPD (mantoux), tuberculin skin test including results.
  • Three doses of hepatitis B immunizations are required for kindergarten entry.
  • Two Varicella (chickenpox vaccine)

It is a good idea to get this examination at the same time the child goes to the doctor for the required immunizations for kindergarten.  Forms for the physical examination may be picked up at the school prior to the registration or the day of the registration. The state required dental assessment forms for students entering kindergarten will also be available at the schools. 
  1. Verification of Residency – 2 different bills verifying address 
Parents who are not able to enroll their children during the formal registration may go to the school office on any school day after the enrollment date listed above.
