Kindergarten registration August 2010
Kindergarten registration open for classes to begin in August
Posted on 08/26/2010
Registration forms are now available for parents to sign-up children for Kindergarten classes to begin in August. A registration packet is available at each primary and elementary school with a Kindergarten class in Floyd County Schools or online at www.floydboe.net. A child must be five years-old on or before September 1, 2010 to enroll. A screening will be held in the schools on Thursday, May 6 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 on May 6. 

The opportunity for those not participating in a Pre-K program to have a child screened will be on Thursday, May 6, 2010 from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The screenings 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 6 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 concerning what they will need to do before their child begins school in August. 

Important Reminders: 
  • A parent needs to accompany the child to the screening on May 6, if it is necessary for your child to attend. 
  • The parent and child must attend the screening in their school 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.
