Kindergarten Registration

Children must be five (5) years of age on or before August 15, 2019 in order to be eligible for kindergarten.

Kindergarten Registration
Parents should pick up a registration packet at the school where the child will be attending. 
This packet contains all the information and directions needed in order to register your child for kindergarten.

Completed registration packets must be returned on Thursday, March 7, 2019, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to the school in which the child will be enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year. If inclement weather occurs and school is closed, registration will be rescheduled.


Required Documents for Registration

Birth Certificate

An official birth certificate is required in order to register for kindergarten. A mother’s copy or a hospital-created record of birth is not considered an official birth certificate.
If your child was born in Tennessee, the local health department can provide an official certificate. A birth certificate can also be ordered online at the Tennessee Department of Health's website.

TN Certificate of Immunization (with Health Exam)

This form may be obtained from your doctor or the Sevier County Health Department. The physical must be given after January 1, 2019. This form must be submitted in order for your child to attend school.
If your child attended pre-kindergarten in the Sevier County School System or within the state of Tennessee, the pre-school immunization certificate and physical will be sufficient for enrolling your child in kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year, but immunizations must be updated to the required kindergarten standards for entry. 

Other Required Documents

Social Security Card
Kindergarten Information Sheet (included with packet)
