Washington Schools Announce Kindergarten Pre-Registration

Last updated on Tuesday, March 5, 2013

(WASHINGTON COUNTY) - The Washington Community Schools have announced that Kindergarten Pre-Registration will be held during the week of April 8th to 12th.

Any student who will be at least five years of age before August 1, 2012 is eligible to attend kindergarten. Please bring your child's birth certificate and immunization (shot) records to the office of the elementary school located in the school district where you live.

Indiana law requires children entering school to have five (5) D.P.T.; four (4) polio; two (2) MMR; and three (3) doses of hepatitis B vaccine ( 4 D.P.T. and 3 polio are acceptable if the 4th D.P.T., and 3rd polio was administered on or after fourth birthday). Starting with the 2010-2011 school year all students entering Kindergarten or 1st grade must have two (2) chickenpox shots or a history of the disease documented by a health care provider. The school nurse will copy and check immunization records as part of the kindergarten registration. All immunizations must be completed by the first day of school. If you have any questions please call Central Office at 254-5536.

It is very important that all students who will be attending Kindergarten in the 2013-2014 school year take part in Pre-Registration. The schools need accurate enrollment data in order to plan for the fall. The elementary schools will be accepting Pre-registration information over a five day period, April 8th to April 12th, from 8 am until 3 pm daily.
