Kindergarten Enrollment Requirements

Kindergarten students are required to submit the following prior to the start of school:   

All forms must be on file in the Health Office prior to the start of school.  

** Immunization records (must meet NJ State requirements with     booster shots). 

 

  • Please check with your child's doctor to make sure your child's immunizations meet NJ State requirements so they will be able to start on the first day of school. 
  • Parents with children who have a September birthday should contact their child's doctor about a immunization visit for just booster shots prior to the start of school. Those children with a September birthday can receive their booster shots prior to the start of school, then can have their well check up in September. If your student has their physical exam or immunization appointment after the first day of school, the nurse needs written documentation from your child's doctor with the appointment date prior to the start of school. 

 

** Physical exam form completed by your child's doctor

     (within 365 days of the start of kindergarten)   

** Growth & Development form completed by parent

** Dental exam form completed by child's dentist

     (within 365 days of the start of kindergarten). 

All forms are listed below and may be downloaded. 

** Please inform the nurses of any severe allergies or medical conditions prior to your child starting school to ensure the proper forms are completed and medication is in school.  No child may transport medication to school, only an adult may bring in medication.
