General Registration Information and Forms

Kindergarten students who will attend Dutchtown Elementary, which will open for the 2005-06 school year, should register  at the school in their current attendance zone.

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 Questionnaire Form

Georgia law requires that children must be five years old on or before September 1, 2005, to be enrolled in Georgia public school kindergarten programs. To register children, parents are asked to bring proof of age, such as a birth certificate; two proofs of Henry County residence; an immunization certificate on Georgia Form 3231 (available at physicians' offices and the county health department).  

 A student, regardless of grade level, who has never been in a Georgia public school must also provide certification of eye, ear and 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 social security number. No student will be denied enrollment in Henry 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 immunized with all of the required vaccines (DTP, DTaP, DT, or Td; Hepatitis B; Hib; OPV or IPV; Measles, Mumps and Rubella or MMR; and Varicella (Chicken Pox). Proof of Hepatitis B vaccination is required to enter kindergarten. Parents are being advised to begin the Hepatitis B vaccinations as soon as possible, because the series of three doses takes a minimum of four months to complete.

The first day of school for the 2005-06 school year will be August 1. For more information about kindergarten registration, please call Liz Burr, Curriculum Coordinator,  770-957-6547, at the school system administrative offices. Ms. Burr can be reached by email at
