Bring vaccination records to kindergarten sign-up

Thu., March 3, 2011

 Kindergarten registration for the 2011-’12 school year starts today in the Central Valley School District. Parents can register students at their neighborhood school.

 Classes are available for the mornings, afternoons and all-day, tuition-based classes with extended child care. Options vary by school.

 Parents should bring up-to-date immunization records, original state-certified birth certificates and proof of residence with a utility bill.

 They should also bring proof of immunity to chickenpox. This includes two doses of varicella vaccine, a titer test which confirms immunity, or verification of having had chickenpox by a health care provider. Parental reports of students having had chickenpox are not accepted. New students can’t be enrolled until vaccinations are complete.

 Kindergarten students must be 5 on or before Aug. 31.

 Students in the Greenacres and Liberty Lake elementary attendance areas can register at the Kindergarten Center, 1512 N. Barker Road.

 New first-grade students can also enroll at their neighborhood schools. They must be 6 on or before Aug. 31.

 For more information, call the district office at (509) 228-5425 or visit
