Parents of students entering the Hernando County public school system for the first time may register their children at the school they will be attending. To find out what school your child should attend, call 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.
+ An up-to-date certificate of immunization for all new students. Dates and doses must be listed for DPT, polio, measles, mumps and rubella. Students in kindergarten or grades 1, 7, 8 and 9 need proof of their hepatitis B vaccinations. Students claiming medical or religious exemptions must get a certificate of exemption from the Hernando County Public Health Unit.
+ Proof that a physical examination has been performed within the past 12 months. The Hernando County Public Health Unit performs school physicals at its Brooksville and Spring Hill locations. Call 754-4067 for Brooksville and 688-5067 for Spring Hill.
