Greenville City Schools schedules kindergarten registration


GREENVILLE – Greenville City Schools will hold kindergarten registration at the Elementary School from 4-7 p.m. April 2, from 4-6 p.m. April 3 and 4-6 p.m. April 4.

Parents also can register their children from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at Memorial Hall or register children online at https://greenville.esvportal.com.

Children do not need to be present for registration. Children must be 5 years old by Aug. 1 to be eligible for kindergarten.

Once a child has been registered, parents will be assigned a kindergarten screening date. Kindergarten screening will be held the week of May 6.

At screening, children will be given a short academic, speech and health screening, and parents will be provided information about kindergarten at Greenville City Schools.

Screening is an opportunity for parents to have any questions answered and for students and parents to visit the school. Screening is vital for families to get information about how kindergarten has changed over the years and learn about the district and a typical day in kindergarten. Greenville City Schools also will gain information about children that will help the school place them in their kindergarten classroom.

Students will have the opportunity to get on a school bus and learn about bus safety. They also will receive a pencil, magnetic dry erase board and marker, magnetic letters, crayons, scissors, a book about manners at school and a Wee Wave drawstring bag to keep everything tidy. Parents will learn how to use these materials with the students to provide the best start to school curriculum.

Parents are encouraged to register their children early so that they can be included in the screening process.

Documents needed to complete the registration include official birth certificate, immunization records, two documents for proof of residency (something with a mailing address included,) parent or guardian photo ID and custody papers if applicable.

Anyone with questions may contact Elementary Principal Jody Harter at 548-3185.
