Kindergarten Round-Up 2017

kround-up-logoShoals Elementary School is conducting its annual search for potential Kindergarten students in preparation for Round-Up. The Round-Up will be held for incoming Kindergarten students Friday, April 7th, at Shoals Elementary School from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Pre-registration is necessary for all students by Friday, March 24th.

A child must be five years old on or before Monday, August 1, 2017, in order to enroll in Kindergarten. All eligible children should enroll during Round-Up. Parents should attend Round-Up with their child and bring the child's certificate of birth, social security card and immunization records. Below are the available sessions. We ask that you choose which session works with your schedule and mark the corresponding session on the form.

Session 1: 8:30am  |  Session 2: 10:00am  |  Session 3: 1:00pm
(Space is limited for each session so we encourage you to register as early as possible)

Each session will last approximately one and one-half hours. Parents are asked to please use the front parking lot (in front of the gym) and enter through the doors past the Elementary office. Signs will be posted.

Physicals and immunizations will be offered on this date. Immunizations will be administered at the Martin County Health Department, and physicals will be offered at Shoals Elementary.

Minimum immunization requirements for all children newly enrolled in kindergarten, less than 7 years of age are: 5 doses of DTaP, 4 doses of OPV, 2 MMRs, 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine, 2 doses chicken pox vaccine (Varicella) or record of the disease, and 2 doses of Hep A. A physical, complete immunizations, social security card, and certificate of birth (not the hospital birth certificate) are all required for entry into school.

It is necessary to pre-register your child for Round-Up via mail, fax, online (touch here) or phone on or before Friday, March 24th keeping in mind that the school office will be closed March 27th – March 31st for Spring Break.
