    EARLY ADMISSION: If you are interested in pursuing early admission to Kindergarten, please read the State policy.

    Most parents choose to enroll their 5-year-olds in kindergarten even though the state does not require children to be enrolled in school until the age of 7.

    To register your child, please go to your child’s school. If you do not know which school your child will be attending, go to the School Assignment Locator page. Your child does not have to be present to be registered, but you will need to take along the following:

    • A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, which can be obtained from the county or state health department where the child was born, or other satisfactory evidence of date of birth.

      (B) The other proof of residence may include one of the following in the name of the parent/legal guardian(s) with address and a current date:

      • Utility bill for the residence (electric, water, gas)

      • Three Hepatitis B doses. This vaccine is required of all children born on or after July 1, 1994.
    • North Carolina law requires that a kindergarten health assessment be completed on or before the first day of school before a child can enter kindergarten. The health assessment must be completed no more than 12 months prior to the Kindergarten start date.
      • If a completed health assessment form is not presented on or before the first day, the principal shall present a notice of deficiency to the parent, guardian, or responsible person. The parent, guardian, or responsible person shall have 30 calendar days from the first day of attendance to present the required health assessment form for the child. Upon termination of 30 calendar days, the principal shall not permit the child to attend the school until the required health assessment transmittal form has been presented. Health assessment forms are available at Lee County Schools, area doctors’ offices or at the Lee County Health Department. Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can get health assessments and immunizations through the Lee County Health Department.

    Schools are staffed all year and throughout the summer. Please register your child as early as possible so the school will be prepared for your child. A special registration period for entering kindergartners is held in the spring for the following school year, but newcomers arriving after that date can register any time.
