Children enrolling in grade school for the first time must present a copy of their birth certificates and immunization records for their permanent files. Students entering kindergarten, 6th and 9th grade must have a physical examination. These records must be turned in no later than the first day of school. Physicals not in by October 15 will result in students being suspended from school. All new out-of-state residents are also required to have a physical exam upon transferring. Students transferring from other districts must furnish records of transfer containing all necessary information.
Student insurance will be available. The insurance will be K&K Insurance Group. Pamphlets will be available on the plan at registration.
Students in grades 5 through 12 who are planning to participate in a sport or an activity are reminded that a completed physical examination form and either an insurance waiver form indicating proof of insurance or school insurance are required to be turned in before beginning practice. These may be turned in to the elementary or high school office or to your coach before your first practice. Physical examination and dental forms, insurance waiver forms, and school insurance forms are available in the offices.
