From Moore County Schools:
Dear Kindergarten Parent,
We are looking forward to working with you and your child in our kindergarten program. It will be exciting to see your child learn and grow this year. As a reminder, any child who will be entering kindergarten must be five years of age on or before August 31, 2018. Kindergarten Registration Day is March 16th, 2018 and takes place at your child’s school.
Before Registration Day, please complete the online enrollment forms that are linked on the MCS website https://www.ncmcs.org/KindergartenRegistration. If you do not have access to the internet, you may go to your child’s school and they will help you use a computer there to complete the forms. You may also drop off a paper search form, which is also on the web page, and return it to school. The school will call you to set up an appointment for March 16th. There will also be help on Kindergarten Registration Day with the process if you need it.
Parents who are unsure as to the attendance area in which they reside should call Kevin Griffin, Director of Transportation for Moore County Schools, at (910) 947-5481. Though students usually attend the school in the community where they live, parents may request that a child attend another school provided there is room available. For more information on Moore County Schools’ transfer policy, contact the office of Student Support Services at (910) 947-2976 or refer to the web page here: Transfer Requests.
If you are a new resident, enrolling a student in school takes place at the local school in your community. Parents/guardians should bring with them the following:
- Official Birth certificate
- Immunization Records/Certificates
- Copy of Child’s Physical Examination with this form: North Carolina Student Health Form
- Proof of residence (such as a Moore County property tax statement, a current lease/rental agreement, current closing statement for property purchase, or utility bill in your name)
- Proof of legal custody or guardianship
The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and the Department of Health and Human Services require that every child have a physical exam and specific immunizations in order to enter kindergarten. The North Carolina Student Health Form is to be completed by your child’s healthcare provider at the time of the physical exam. If you don’t have it by March 16th, it must be received by the school prior to your child beginning school in August.
Please contact your child’s school if you need further information. We welcome you to Moore County Schools!
