Some grades pre-register for schools next week
St. Mary Parish Public Schools will begin registration for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first-grade students next week.
In accordance with the age guidelines set by the Louisiana Department of Education, all pre-kindergarten students must be 4 years old and all kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 30 for the 2012-2013 school session.
Any student entering first grade in the fall and not currently enrolled in a public school kindergarten should register on the designated registration days.
Registration for all elementary schools in St. Mary Parish will be held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 27.
Early registration is essential as it enables the school system to plan accordingly for personnel and teaching materials, thereby ensuring a successful start to the new school year. Parents and guardians are asked to attend registration at the school in their attendance zone. Upon the completion of registration, the pre-kindergarten teachers at each school site will contact parents of potential pre-kindergarten students to set up screening tests. These tests are required for admittance to St. Mary Parish pre-kindergarten classes.
Parents are asked to bring the information listed below on the day of registration:
Birth certificate, immunization record, Social Security card, allergy information, proof of residency, proof of income (pre-Kindergarten students only).
Anyone needing additional information can contact Elizabeth Theriot at the Central Office Complex in Centerville at 836-9661.
