Kindergarten registration packets ready this month

Kindergarten registration dates have been set throughout the Milford public school district

Parents with children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall (for the 2013-14 academic year) are asked to go to the school and pick up a registration packet, then make an appointment to go in to register in March.

Parents can pick up registration materials at the school beginning Feb. 11 during normal operating hours prior to the official registration date.

Parents need to complete the required forms prior to attending the official registration session.

A child must reach the age of 5 before Jan. 1, 2014 in order to start kindergarten in the fall. At the time of registration, parents must bring the following items to complete the registration process:

A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate (with a raised seal);

A record of any communicable diseases the child may have had;

A record of the child’s immunization schedule; and

Two proofs of residency (examples include a current utility bill, mortgage receipt/rent receipt).

Before entry into school in August, each child must have a physical examination that includes a hemoglobin or hematocrit test, vision, hearing and speech screening. The physical examination cannot have been done earlier than 12 months prior to the date the child enters school.
