Kindergarten registration and child development screenings coming up
Posted: Tuesday, Feb 12th, 2013
Flandreau Elementary kindergarten registration for the 2013-2014 school year will be held at the Community Center on Wednesday, February 27, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, February 28, from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Also at this time, the Developmental and Health Check Screenings will also be available for children ages 3, 4 and 5 years old.
To attend kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year, children must be five on or before September 1, 2013. As parents, you can plan for this registration by obtaining a copy of your child’s state-issued birth certificate and immunization record. Since all students must have their state-issued birth certificate and immunization record on file, only those meeting this requirement will be able to start school in August of 2013.
One of the goals of the state and nation is that all children enter school ready to learn. In an effort to accomplish this goal, several agencies in Moody County will be available to provide Developmental and Health Check Screenings for all children ages 3-5 who are not currently enrolled in school.
To schedule an appointment for the kindergarten registration/screening, please call the Public Health Office at 997-3779. These assessments are free to all families.
Staff from the Flandreau Public School, Moody County Public Health, and Moody County Head Start will all be involved in the screenings.
