The Tooele County School District will be holding kindergarten registration for fall 2013 enrollment. It will be held at all Tooele County elementary schools on Feb. 28 and March 1.
To be eligible to enter kindergarten, your child must be at least 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1. The following documentation will be required before a child can officially begin kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year:
Official State Birth Certificate: A copy of a state birth certificate for a child born within Utah may be obtained from the Tooele County Health Department, 151 N. Main St., Tooele. A copy may also be obtained from the Utah State Division of Health, 554 S. 300 East, Salt Lake City. Birth certificates for a child born outside of Utah should be obtained from the State Division of Health in the state the child was born. Immunization Record: The following are required by Utah law for a child entering school: 5 DPT/DTaP, 4 Polio, 2 MMR, 3 Hepatitis B, 2 Hepatitis A and 1 Varicella.
Vision Screening: A child under 7 years of age entering school for the first time in the state of Utah must present a certificate signed by a licensed physician, optometrist, or other licensed health professional, stating that the child has received vision screening (Utah Code- Title 53A-11-203).
The following are highly recommended by the Tooele County School District before registering: Health Examination: Make an appointment with your physician or health clinic.
Dental Examination: Make an appointment with your dentist. Four doses of Haemophilus Influenza Type B (Hib): Dosing scheduled based on student’s current age.
Each child entering kindergarten must have a prescreening assessment. This assessment will be scheduled by your school prior to the end of this school year. It is important that you have your child registered to receive an assessment time. A kindergarten orientation will be held at local schools in August where general kindergarten information will be shared.
We appreciate your cooperation and support in getting your kindergarten student registered for the 2013-2014 school year. This helps us plan around our enrollment numbers for the upcoming year. If you have further questions, contact your school principal or you may contact the assistant superintendent at the district office at 833-1900, ext. 1152.
