School sets registration dates for kindergarten

The South Whidbey School District has set May 13 as kindergarten registration day for children who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 31, 2003.

Registration will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. in the Primary School multi-purpose room. It takes about one hour.

Parents will need state certified birth certificates, dates of immunizations, two emergency contacts on South Whidbey, names and phone numbers of doctor, parents, place of employment (if applicable) and any childcare providers.

School district officials said that by the time children enter kindergarten, they must have had these immunizations:

  • Four doses of DTP, DT or TD with last dose on or after fourth birthday
  • Three doses of Polio vaccine with last dose on or after fourth birthday.
  • Two doses of Measles/ Mumps/Rubella vaccine, one on or after first birthday, with the doses 28 days apart.
  • Three doses of Hepatitis B vaccine.
Immunizations are available at the Island County Health Department across the street from the primary school, from 1 to 5 p.m. any Tuesday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 13. Call the health department at 321-5111 Ext. 351 for more information.

The school will also register students for full-day kindergarten programs, for which a monthly tuition is charged.

If more students sign up than there are places available, attendance will be determined through a lottery drawing. Parents are asked to complete a letter of interest and attach a deposit check for $50, which will be applied to the first month's tuition.

Parents with children who will be in first or second grade next year and who will be attending South Whidbey Primary School for the first time can register them at any time.

For more information, call 221-6200 and ask for Donna Evans or Pat Jolin.
