• Proof of a physical examination, dated and signed by a licensed health professional within the last 12 months

• Birth certificate

• Copy of student's last report card (if applicable)

• Legal guardianship records (if applicable)

Students entering kindergarten for the first time must be 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1. Pre-kindergarten and Head Start/Early Start programs are available to students who will not make the deadline.

Students transferring from another Florida county will be asked to present the following items upon registration at the school (please note special conditions in parentheses):

Students moving from one school to another under the school choice program should be prepared to present their approved school choice application at the time of registration.
