Information about all departments and services of the Hernando County school system can be accessed through the district's website at hernandoschools.org. Assistance and details are provided on topics such as:

• New student registration. Parents of students entering the Hernando County public school system for the first time can register their children at the schools they will attend. The website provides information about required documentation needed to register a child. Schools are open Mondays through Thursdays through the summer. Call your school for the hours it is open. If you are not sure of what school your child is zoned to attend, call the transportation department at (352) 797-7003.

• Up-to-date immunizations are required for all new students. A list of immunizations needed for specific grades is available on the website. (Scroll down the page to links offered for parents.) The Hernando County Health Department offers immunizations at its offices at 300 S Main St., Brooksville, and 7551 Forest Oaks Blvd., Spring Hill. School physicals may be scheduled, by appointment only, at the Spring Hill office. To make an appointment, or to find out what immunizations your child must have, call (352) 540-6800.

• Dress codes are available on individual school websites, which can be accessed from the Hernando school district site.
