Central Greene schedules kindergarten registration sessions

January 25, 2013

Central Greene School District will be conducting registration for kindergarten- and first grade-eligible students March 18 through 20 at Waynesburg Central Elementary School.

Parents can complete a Community Action Southwest Pre-K program application at this time. Representatives from Pre-K will be present. Classrooms currently are in place at Waynesburg Central Elementary School and Waynesburg Central High School.

Central Greene’s policy states any child who will be 5 years old before Sept. 1 may attend kindergarten. Any child who will be 6 years old before the same date may attend first grade.

A child who now is attending kindergarten already is registered for first grade and need not register again.

It is important to register your child for kindergarten or first grade even if you are not certain you will be sending your child to school.

Please bring proof of birth (birth certificate, notarized copy of birth certificate, baptismal certificate, copy of baptism if notarized or duly certified and showing date of birth, notarized statement from the parents or another relative indication the date of birth, or valid passport); immunization records; and proof of residency (a deed, a lease, current utility bill, property tax bill, vehicle registration or department of transportation identification card).

Your child cannot be registered without a birth certificate and immunizations records.

The school nurse will check all immunization records and will give guidance on physical problems. If your child has any unusual medical conditions or history, bring the treating physician’s name and address. The required immunizations for registration are as follows:

• Four D.T. immunizations (with one being on or after the fourth birthday)

• Three polio

• Two measles, mumps and rubella

• Three hepatitis B

Two chickenpox vaccine-or documented proof of disease or titer level from your physician.

Speech and language therapists and hearing specialists will be testing children’s hearing, speech and language. A vision screening also will take place.

There will be various activity/play centers available for the children who are being registered.

Additionally, guidance counselors, a kindergarten teacher and principals will be available to answer your questions.

In order to speed up the process, registration packets may be completed in advance and brought to registration. Packets are available in the elementary school office. Packets also will be available on the day of registration.

Please bring your child to Waynesburg Central Elementary School at the date/time listed below. If you are unable to attend your session, please contact the Waynesburg Central Elementary offices as soon as possible to make an appointment for another time.
