LOWELL | Registration for children entering kindergarten in the fall will be held today and Thursday at the offices of Lake Prairie, Oak Hill, and Three Creeks elementary schools of the Tri-Creek School Corporation from 9 to 11 a.m. and noon to 2 p.m.
Failure to participate in this Kindergarten Roundup may result in a child to be transferred to another school due to classes being filled.
Tri-Creek School Corporation provides only full-day kindergarten for all children.
A child must be 5 on or before Aug. 1, 2014, to be eligible for kindergarten. A legal birth certificate or hospital birth record should be presented during registration. Birth certificate verification, complete immunization records which are verified with the physician’s signature and date, and proof of physical examination will be necessary before a child may start school.
State law requires that children newly enrolled in kindergarten must have required immunizations. Information is available from the school district.
Parents and legal guardians of students new to the district will need to meet with the corporation residency official and provide a valid Indiana Driver’s License and either mortgage papers, payment book, or a lease agreement. They must also provide two of the following: a NIPSCO bill, water bill, pay stubs, insurance bill, telephone bill and bank statement. All the above items must include parents’ or legal guardians’ name(s) and current Tri-Creek address.
The residency official will be available to meet with parents from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. today and Thursday at the Administration Building, 195 W. Oakley Ave.
Students presently enrolled in Tri-Creek schools need to register in August to confirm enrollment.
