The staff at Forest Elementary School is excited about meeting the new kindergarten students for the 2021-22 school year! Parents may bring the documents outlined below and their child to the Forest Elementary Auditorium from 8:30 – 2:00 on May 7 or May 13, 2021. Our Kindergarten teachers will help you register, take your pictures at our photo booth and answer all your questions about “big” school.
Potential students must have reached the age of five years on or before September 1, 2021 to register for Kindergarten.
Parents of all potential Kindergarten students must provide two current proofs of residency at registration. Two of the following items showing the physical street address will be accepted as proofs of residency (Post office box addresses are not acceptable):
• Filed Homestead Exemption Application Form
• Mortgage Documents or Property Deed
• Apartment or Home Lease (must include parent/guardian’s name, date, address and amount of rent)
• Current Water Bill
• Current Gas Bill
• Current Electricity Bill
• Driver’s License, Consular ID or State ID
• Voter ID
• MS Road and Bridge Privilege Tax and Registration Receipt (Car Tag Receipt)
In addition to two proofs of residency parents must also complete the registration information packet and provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate, the child’s social security card, and the proper immunization (Form 121) report issued through the family physician or health department.
If you have any questions about Kindergarten registration, feel free to contact Lynn Atkison, school counselor, at 601-469-3073 (extension 3004).
