Saturday, February 15, 2014 12:01 AM
CONVOY — Parents or guardians residing in the Crestview School District having a child five years of age on or before Aug. 1, 2014, may register their child for kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year. Parents or guardians requesting open enrollment for their kindergarten student to the Crestview School District should also register at this time.
Registration will be held Monday, March 17 through Friday, March 21 from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the elementary office (enter at door 9). No appointment is necessary.
At the time of registration, parents or guardians need to present the following: child’s original birth certificate, child’s social security card, child’s immunization record, custody papers (if applicable) and one proof of residency document (mortgage statement, lease agreement, voter registration card, utility statement, bank statement, or rent receipt. A post office box cannot validate residency requirements.).
The incoming kindergarten student need not attend during the 30 minutes registration time.
The State of Ohio requires the following immunizations for public school children:
2 doses of MMR
4 - 5 doses of DPaT, (5 doses are required unless the 4th dose was received after 4 years of age)
3 - 4 doses of polio (final dose must be after 4 years of age)
3 doses of Hepatitis B
2 doses of Varicella (chicken pox)
The Hepatitis A vaccine is also recommended, but not required.
All immunizations are required to be documented by the 15th day of school.
Parents will need to update immunizations with their child’s physician or with the Van Wert County Health Department. The Van Wert County Health Department (419-238-0808, x103 or x107) is currently scheduling appointments for immunization clinics. Vision, hearing, and speech screenings will be conducted at the beginning of the 2014-2015 kindergarten school year as a part of kindergarten screening.
