Kindergarten Registration 2019-2020

Elementary schools in the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public School District are welcoming parents of rising kindergarteners to register their children for the 2019-2020 school year. To register, students must be five years old on or before August 31, 2019.

All seven elementary schools will hold kindergarten registration at the same time at their respective schools. Dates and times are:

Monday, April 15th (12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)
Tuesday, April 16th (3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
Wednesday, April 17th (8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.)

To enroll a child in kindergarten, parents must bring their child and the following items:

1. The child’s legal birth certificate (certificates must have a seal) OR, if your child does not have a legal birth certificate, other documented proof of age must be presented. This statement does not guarantee that the documentation presented in lieu of a legal birth certificate will be accepted. Exceptions to a legal birth certificate will be made on an individual, case-by-case basis.

2. Your child’s social security number is strongly encouraged to be presented in order for his/her identification information to be complete in our student accounting program.

3. A current proof of residence (such as an electric bill, mortgage statement or lease agreement) must be available for review/documentation.

* If you do not have a physical form for your child’s doctor to complete and sign, please let the person registering your child know and one will be provided for you.

After completing the enrollment process, acceptance into Kindergarten will be based on the following criteria:

1. Parent(s) or Legal Guardian MUST reside in the school’s attendance area and provide documentation as parent or legal guardian of child.

2. The child MUST be five years old on or before August 31, 2019.

3. The child MUST have an up-to-date immunization record (all immunizations must be up-to-date before the 30th calendar day from the first day of the student’s attendance in kindergarten).

4. Parent(s) or Legal Guardian MUST present a physical form for the student – signed and completed by the child’s doctor –
