Kindergarten registration slated

Evergreen Elementary School will accept kindergarten registrations for the 2016-17 school year Feb. 1-11 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the office.

Your child does not need to be with you. An appointment for screening during the month of May will be made at registration. State law requires kindergarten attendance prior to first grade. To be eligible to register for kindergarten in 2016-2017 your child must be five years of age on or before Aug. 1, 2016.

Required documents include the child’s state birth certificate, immunization records, and custody papers if applicable. You also need to provide proof of residency in the Evergreen school district. The following verification documents will be accepted: a valid driver’s license or photo state I.D. card with current address in the district; a copy of the deed, escrow papers, or lease/rental agreement for your residence in the district; and a copy of a current utility bill/deposit receipt (phone, gas, and electric) or a current active bank statement that includes your name and address.

Parents with questions should contact the Evergreen Elementary School office at 419-644-9221.
