Parents can register their child for kindergarten for the 2012-2013 school year during the Manatee County School District’s annual “Kindergarten Roundups” at elementary schools across the county.
Anna Maria Elementary principal David Marshall announced this week the AME roundup will be 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursday, April 12.
Kindergarten for the 2012-13 school year is available to students who are 5-years old on or before Sept. 1, 2012.
To register, parents or guardians are asked to provide the child’s birth certificate, a physical examination certificate (performed within 12 months), a Florida certificate of immunization and proof of residency.
To prove residency, parents or guardians may provide current documentation, including an electric or water bill showing the address and name of the parent or guardian, a lease agreement with the name of the parent or guardian, or an official letter from the company providing housing that contains the parent or guardian’s name.
AME teachers and school staff will be available at the Kindergarten Roundup to answer questions and provide additional information about entering public school.
