Today (Thursday) is opening day for kindergarten registration at Chase County Schools.
Parents can begin registering their prospective students that day through April 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The office will stay open until 6 p.m. one evening during the registration period on Thursday, April 22.
CCS Elementary Principal Nathan Vitosh said there are 51 youngsters in the district who are eligible for kindergarten this fall, based on the school census.
However, he realizes not all parents will choose to send their child even if eligible.
Parents planning to register their child for school this fall should bring with them several important documents if they are completed, Vitosh said, including a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, and documentation of several health checks.
All parents with eligible 2010-11 kindergartners should have received a letter in which those requirements are spelled out.
Students will not be able to attend school this fall without all of those documents on file, Vitosh said in the letter to parents.
Following the registration period, the prospective kindergarten students will attend a visitation day at the school on Monday, May 3.
Children must be five years old on or before Oct. 15, 2010, to attend kindergarten this fall.
Parents with kindergarten eligibility questions, or who have eligible students but did not receive a letter from the school, should contact Principal Vitosh at 882-4304.
