    Parents may stop by the school daily between 7am - 4pm to pick up an enrollment packet.

    To be eligible for kindergarten, students must turn 5 on or before Aug. 15, 2019. To register an incoming kindergartener or a new student in another grade, you will need to bring the following items:

      • Decree of adoption or other records issued by a court

    Note: The form that proof of birth takes is an area of parental discretion, and schools will accept appropriate documentation as offered.  No one form of documentation is required or preferred over another.



    • Immunization Records - these must be on a Tennessee Form (contact Knox County Health Department if records are from another state)
    • Recent Physical Examination

    Note: If your child has not had their shots yet, you can still register. you will just need to provide proof of the shots before the first day of school.

    • Proof of Residence - the Knox County Schools requires one of the following: a) Utility Bill, b) Lease agreement, c) in cases where the utilities and/or lease agreement is in the name of a person other than the parent/guardian, the person listed must provide the utility bill and/or lease agreement and also must provide a notarized letter stating that the parent/guardian and children are living at that address.

  • Parents & Students - Thank you for a Great Job!


    Parents, chronic absenteeism is something the state is really beginning to focus on. As a matter of fact our school is held accountable for having students not in attendance. We have really made a push this year to cut down our chronic absence number. Chronic absenteeism is when a student misses 10 percent of school days, regardless if it is excused or unexcused. Last year we averaged 13% throughout the school year. This year we have cut that number down to 7.5%. Remember to save those absences for when a child is sick - we definitely don’t want your child to be here when he/she is not feeling well. Thank you and let’s keep it up.
