Haleyville Elementary kindergarten registration April 3

HALEYVILLE - Haleyville City Schools will hold kindergarten registration for the 2019-2020 school year Wednesday, April 3, at the Haleyville Elementary School library.  A child being registered for kindergarten must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2019, and meet Haleyville Board of Education requirements before he/she can attend school for the 2019-2020 school year.

Parents or guardians registering prospective kindergarten students are encouraged to bring the following:

  • The child's birth certificate
  • Blue immunization certificate showing that the child has had all the required immunizations:  DPT, polio, measles and mumps.  Alabama law requires proof of immunizations before a child can enter kindergarten or first grade
  • Social Security card
  • Proof of residency
  • Custody papers (if applicable)
  • Driver's license of parent/guardian

 

A team of kindergarten teachers will be administering the HES Kindergarten Screener to all children who will attend kindergarten in the fall of 2019.  Thus, it will be necessary to bring your preschool child with you to registration so the short screening instrument can be administered.  Teachers plan to make this a fun experience for the children.  Parents can help by planning to make this a special outing for their child.

In an effort to avoid overcrowding conditions and to give each child individual attention, the school asks parents to adhere to the following schedule:

Last name begins with A-L:  8:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Last name begins with M-Z:  12 - 2:30 p.m.

For parents who work and can only come during certain times, the school will adjust to accommodate working parents.

It is important that all parents or guardians register eligible children on April 3.

For more information, call Haleyville Elementary School at 205-486-3405.

The enrollment of homeless, migratory, immigrant and ELL students will not be denied or delayed in accordance to the Haleyville City School Board's policy.
