Parents, if you have a child who will be 5 on or before Sept. 1, Greenville County Schools wants to hear from you.
The school district’s kindergarten registration deadline has passed and spokeswoman Beth Brotherton said that numbers are lower that the district expected based on local birthrates and enrollment projections.
“We need accurate numbers for principals to hire teachers and begin planning for the 2017-18 school year,” she said. “Also, there are many spring events that incoming kindergarteners are invited to attend and will miss if they are not registered.”
To enroll a student in kindergarten, a parent must present a state-issued birth certificate, a properly completed immunization certificate or religious exemption certificate, and two forms of proof of residence, such as a current electric bill, current mortgage, or lease statement, the latest income tax return, or a paycheck stub with address.
Parents should register at the school that their child will attend. To find out where the student will attend, call the school district’s INFOLine at 864-355-3100 or go to the Find Your School feature on the school district’s website.
