Kindergarten registration information
Kindergarten registration information for Floyd County Schools
Posted on 03/28/2011
Registration forms are now available for parents to sign-up children for Kindergarten classes to begin in August in Floyd County Schools. A registration packet is available at each primary and elementary school with a Kindergarten class or the registration documents can be downloaded from links below this story. A child must be five years-old on or before September 1, 2011 to enroll. A screening will be held in each area elementary and primary school for students not currently in a Pre-K program.

If your child is participating in a Georgia Lottery funded Pre-K program, forms have been sent to all Pre-K programs and made available to parents through those programs. Students in the Pre-K program have or will be screened for Kindergarten while participating in the school or private daycare Pre-K program and will not be required to attend the screening held at a school. 

For those children not currently participating in a Pre-K program, a screening will be held on Thursday, May 5, 2011 from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The screening will be available at the school the child will attend in the fall. No appointment is necessary. The screening instrument the children will be given asks basic questions related to alphabet, number and shape recognition. For parents of a child not currently enrolled in a Pre-K program, it is very important to make arrangements to attend the Kindergarten screening on May 5 at the school in your district. 

The Kindergarten pre-registration helps the school know how many students to expect in the fall. Participation in the screening also gives parents an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what they can do to help their child prepare for Kindergarten. 

Important Reminders: 
  • A parent needs to accompany a child attending screening on May 5. 
  • The parent and child must attend the screening at the school in their district. 
  • You will need to provide the official birth certificate for the child 
  • The child's social security card or number will be needed to register (optional with a completed waiver) 
  • Proof of residency will be required. You may use a current utility bill for this purpose. 
Parents should bring immunization and eye/ear/dental screening certificates, but these are not mandatory the day of the pre-registration and screening. These must be completed by the first day of school in the fall.
