Parents of children who are eligible for kindergarten in August 2017, as well as Grade One students who have been attending a private kindergarten program, are urged to register their children at the elementary schools in their districts on these dates and times. Children must be five years of age as of Dec. 31, 2017 to be eligible to attend kindergarten in August 2017.
Parents must bring a copy of their child's official birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency. Proof of residency documentation includes driver's license, house deed or lease and two utility bills. Children should have the required immunization inoculations for the following: Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, DPaT, Varicella, Hib (Hemophilius Influenza Type B), and Hep B (Hepatitis B), Pneumococcal and Hep A.
State law also requires that all school children have a health examination prior to entering kindergarten. School officials encourage parents to have their private physician perform a health exam for their children prior to Aug.15, 2017 so that their child may be admitted to school on Aug. 28, 2017. Completed physical paperwork must be returned by Aug. 15 in order for students to start school.
More information, including other required health screenings, can be found on the Seymour Schools website at: www.seymourschools.org or call 203-888-4564.
