It’s Time for Kindergarten Enrollment in Rock Hill Schools
Rock Hill Schools is hosting an event on Saturday, March 11 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Rock Hill Schools district office to help families enroll their children in four-year-old and five-year-old kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year. While the first day of school is six months away, the early enrollment event can help reduce the first day jitters for both students and parents.
The drop-in event will allow families a one-stop shop to complete registration, meet school representatives, and enjoy a carnival-like atmosphere where each registered five-year-old kindergartener will receive a class of 2030 t-shirt and free shaved ice compliments of Kona Ice. Students and their families can also take pictures with area mascots, practice boarding a school bus, and sit in a Rock Hill Fire Department fire truck.
To register for kindergarten, children must be five years old on or by September 1, 2017 and must be four years old on of by September 1, 2017 for pre-kindergarten. To enroll, a parent or legal guardian is expected to provide:
- legal birth certificate,
- a current S.C. Certificate of Immunization record, and
- proof of residence.
Accepted proof of residence documents are an electric bill, gas bill, and a rental or lease agreement. The parent or legal guardian’s name and billing address of the residence must be on the document.
Rock Hill Schools offers a limited pre-kindergarten, or 4K, program. There are several options available to families depending on the child’s attendance zone.
- A half-day program is available at Central Child Development Center. Sessions are available in the morning and afternoon. Families can register at Central Child Development Center or the district office. Students will be screened in late spring and families will be notified in July if their child has been accepted.
- Children living in an attendance zone of a Title 1 school are eligible to apply to a full-day 4K program. Schools included are Belleview, Ebenezer Avenue, Finley Road, Oakdale, Rosewood and York Road. Space is limited in the full-day 4K programs. Once the program is full, applications will be considered for placement in a half-day program at Central Children Development Center.
- Two schools – The Children’s School at Sylvia Circle and Old Pointe – offer a tuition-based full-day program. Families interested in the tuition-based programs should contact the schools directly to register.
