Parents of students entering the Hernando County public school system for the first time can register their children at the schools they will attend. To find out which school your child should attend, call (352) 797-7003. To register, students need the following items:
• A birth certificate for prekindergarten, kindergarten and first-grade students new to Florida who did not attend a kindergarten program in another state. A hospital record is not acceptable.
• Proof of a physical examination within the past 12 months. The Hernando County Health Department performs physicals at its Brooksville and Spring Hill locations. Call (352) 540-6800.
• Proof of residency, which can be a copy of your most recent utility bill.
• All students, including transfers, must have a complete, current certificate of immunization prior to enrollment.
