NCSS announces kindergarten round-up dates and procedures

Newton County School System will conduct Kindergarten Round-Up for the 2017-2018 school year next week. Children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2017, to register for the upcoming school year. Parents should make plans to bring the prospective kindergarten student with them to the round-up so teachers can conduct screenings with the children. (Children currently enrolled in Newton County School System’s Pre-K program do not need to attend Kindergarten Round-Up.)

At the time of registration, parents must provide their child’s Social Security Card, certified birth certificate, Immunization Record Form #3231, and Eye, Ear, Dental (EED) and Nutritional Screening Form #3300.  If there is no Social Security card, a waiver may be signed at the time of registration. Forms #3231 and #3300 should be obtained by the child’s physician or the Newton County Health Department.

In addition, parents must also provide two (2) proofs of residence as follows—one from each of the two categories below:

Category 1: Utility bill with name and address (only garbage, electric, water, or gas will be accepted.)

AND

Category 2:  Current lease agreement, rental agreement or mortgage statement from the purchase of a home.

Should the child not live with one or both parents, guardianship or custody documents will be required.

Parents should register students at the school they are zoned to attend. Registration dates and hours are as follows:

  • Wednesday, May 3, 2017                       9:00 AM –1:00 PM
  • Thursday, May 4, 2017                   9:00 AM –1:00 PM & 3:00 PM –6:00 PM
  • Friday, May 5, 2017                        9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
