Kindergarten Round Up

Kindergarten registration packets will be available at Kindergarten Round-up on Tuesday, April 9th, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. You and your child are encouraged to drop by and visit a classroom and meet our kindergarten teachers.  

A child is eligible to enter Kindergarten if he or she is five years old on or before August 15, 2024. Children may not enter first grade unless they have previously completed an approved Kindergarten program.

For children entering a Knox County school for the first time, admission requirements include:

• A birth certificate or officially acceptable proof of birth date

• Social Security Number (optional)

• Current Proof of residency within our school zone(KUB, HALLSDALE-POWELL, OR LEASE AGREEMENT).  If you are living with someone else, you will need to pick up a separate form from the front office.

  • And any custody papers applicable, prior to dropping off paperwork

• Proof of up-to-date immunizations and of a health/physical examination, recorded on a Tennessee Child Health Record completed by a medical provider or a County Health Department.  The form to be completed may be obtained from a medical provider or from the Health Department.

  • The health/physical examination must have been completed within the past 12 months prior to entering Kindergarten.
  • No student will be enrolled or allowed to attend school without a completed Tennessee School Immunization Certificate. This will be strictly enforced.
  • If possible, please bring your child’s completed Tennessee Child Health Record with you to our Round-Up program. If this is not possible, please schedule the necessary medical appointment as soon as possible.
  • We would also strongly urge you to have your child’s vision checked by an eye specialist (optometrist or ophthalmologist) if this has not been done within the past year.
