Kindergarten registration scheduled

Kindergarten registration has been scheduled from noon to 7 p.m. March 14, 15 and 16 at W. W. Robinson Elementary, Ashby-Lee Elementary, and Sandy Hook elementary schools in Shenandoah County.

Children must be 5 years old by Sept. 30 to be eligible and parents must register them in the attendance zone where they live.

Information that needs to be brought to registration includes the child’s birth certificate and immunization record as well as the street address of their residence.   Also, parents will need a driver’s license or other official government identification and two documents that show the parent’s or guardian’s name and address, for example vehicle registration, a utility bill, lease or rental agreemnt, bank statement, county tax statement, a medical bill or current employer verification on the company’s letterhead or a payroll stub.

Students entering kindergarten will need to undergo pre-kindergarten screening that includes hearing and fine motor skills.  Parents will make those appointments during registration, and the screenings will be held at elementary schools in June.
