Screenings are done on a first-come, first-serve basis. The screenings will take place Wednesday, March 10, 20121 in the Van Buren Elementary School. All youngsters must be five years of age on or before August 1, 2021 to attend.

This registration/screening is only for in-district residents. Those gaining possible acceptance through open enrollment will have a scheduled later on but still need complete kindergarten registration with their home district.

Parents must sign up for registration/screening so that we may have an accurate count of our incoming class size for the upcoming year and set bus routes in a timely fashion.

Parents or guardians should bring the child's following documents:

  • Birth certificate
  • Actual dates of immunizations
  • Social security number
  • Custody Papers (if applicable)
  • Proof of residency (utility bill or land deed in your name)

Centers will be set up to accommodate speech, hearing, language, and vision development.

Please be advised of the necessary immunization requirements: DTaP/DTP – 5 doses, Polio – 4 doses, MMR – 2 doses, Hepatitis B – 3 doses, and 2 doses of the Varicella vaccine or a letter from your doctor with verification that your child has had the disease.

For more information on immunizations, please contact the Hancock County Health Department at 419-424-7869. Please call for a clinic appointment. You are encouraged to do this as soon as possible as summer clinics tend to be very busy.
