It is important to bring your child with you to
kindergarten registration so that your child will become familiar with his or her new
school as well as participate in a brief skills assessment. Kindergarten

children, parents are asked to bring proof of age, such as a birth

A student, regardless of grade level, who has never been in a

dental examinations. Any child admitted to school without a
certificate must present one within 120 calendar days. The form for
this examination is DHR Form 3300. All DHR forms may be obtained at
the local public health departments or physician offices.
All students entering this
school system are asked to provide to the school the studentís

County Schools for declining to provide his or her social security
number or for declining to apply for such a number.
A child entering school in Georgia for the first time must be age-appropriately
