Bright Local School District is announcing their Kindergarten Registration process for 2017. Parents/Guardians are requested to complete paperwork and schedule a screening time. A Kindergarten packet and scheduling can be completed on any school day from March 20th to March 31st between 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM at the Bright Elementary School office. Parents should bring driver’s license, proof of residence, the child’s birth certificate, shot record, social security card and custody papers (if necessary). The child’s attendance is not required to fill out paperwork, however the child should attend the screening day on Wednesday, April 5, 2017.
Bright Elementary is located at 6100 Fair Ridge Road. The screening activities will take approximately one hour.
All children who are 5 years old on or before August 1, 2017 are eligible to register.
All paperwork must be complete and on file before entering Kindergarten. All children will be screened for hearing, vision, speech and communication, other health or medical problems and developmental disorders. Fingerprinting and the Parent-Teacher Link will also be included in the registration. Immunizations will be available on screening day. There will be a $5.00 per shot fee or free if a child’s medical card is presented.
Kindergarten is required by state law. All children must successfully complete a state-approved Kindergarten program before being permitted to enter first grade. The staff at Bright Elementary is excited about this special time for the boys and girls who will enter Kindergarten next year. The registration process is designed to help make the transition to school smooth and enjoyable for the children and their families. Please call Bright Elementary (927-7010) if you have any questions.
