Centennial Kindergarten Registration Begins March 6

Make sure you have all of your paperwork ready to go before you sign up for the 2013-14 school year.

It's that time of year again to dig out birth certficates and get copies of medical records for Centennial School District's kindergarten registration.

Parents can start the process on March 6 at 7 p.m. at each of the district's elementary schools. Children must be five years old by August 31, 2013 to enroll in the 2013-2014 school year.

According to the district, parents need to bring the child's original birth certificate and a separate copy, along with four proofs of residence. A lease, agreement of sale or mortgage statement is mandatory, plus three separate proofs such as a utility bill, tax bill or pay stub.

The child's immunization history is also required and need to show that the student has received the following shots:

  • 4 doses of tetanus (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday, usually given as DTP, DTaP, DT or Td)
  • 4 doses of diphtheria (1 dose on or after the 4th birthday, usually given as DTP, DTaP, DT or Td)
  • 3 doses of polio
  • 2 doses of measles (usually given as MMR)
  • 2 doses of mumps (usually given as MMR)
  • 1 dose of rubella (German measles, usually given as MMR)
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine or history of the disease

Download the student registration form and the health history form and bring it with you to registration. 

Kindergarten classes will be split into morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session begins at 8:45 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m., and the afternoon session begins at 12:45 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.

If you are unsure as to which school your child will attend, call the district registrar at 215-441-6000 x 11046 for assistance. If you are unable to attend the meeting on March 6, contact the registration office after March 6 at 215-441-6000 x 11046 to arrange an appointment for registration.
