Newton Falls – Registration for children entering the Newton Falls School System for the 2015-2016 school year was held in February and the beginning of March. If you have not yet registered your child for next year’s kindergarten, it is important that you do so immediately as there is a mandated screening time which will take place at the end of April.
You do NOT need an appointment, but please only come during these times: 8:30-11:30 or 12:30-2:30. It is not necessary to bring your child at this time. To qualify for kindergarten, child must be 5 by August 1, 2015.
You should bring the following items with you when registering: Your child’s legal birth certificate, immunization records (see list below), proof of residency (driver’s license, utility bill, etc), child’s Social Security Number and custody papers (if applicable).
The Ohio Department of Health requires that all children entering kindergarten in the state of Ohio shall be immunized as follows: 5 doses Dtap vaccine (unless the fourth dose was administered after the 4th birthday), 4 doses Polio vaccine (last dose must be given after the 4th birthday), 2 doses MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) , 3 doses Hepatitis B vaccine and 2 doses Varicella Vaccine.
Please check your child’s shot record now which will give you ample time to complete these requirements prior to registration. Your child can not start school the first day without a completed immunization record.
If you have any questions, you may contact the school secretary, Mrs. Dee Howard, at 330-872-5225 (ext. 2301).
