The St. Johns County School District is encouraging parents to register kindergarten students and students new to the county and/or the public school system before school starts on August 18.
The following elementary schools are registering students throughout the summer at their campuses: John A. Crookshank, Ketterlinus, Otis A. Mason, Osceola, and South Woods elementary schools as well as The Webster School. Due to summer programs taking place at Ketterlinus Elementary School, the administrations for W. D. Hartley and R. B. Hunt elementary schools are currently housed at Ketterlinus Elementary School.
For preregistration information regarding Patriot Oaks Academy and Valley Ridge Academy, please contact those schools directly.
All other elementary and middle schools are operating out of their area high school. Parents may contact schools at their regular phone number for registration information or go to their zoned school’s consolidation site to register their children. Consolidation sites are available at http://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/press/2014/06/06/summer-operations/
The schools are currently operating Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. All schools and district offices will be closed during the week of July 14-18 and will reopen on Monday, July 21.
To be eligible for kindergarten, children must be 5 years old on or before September 1 and must reside in St. Johns County. To register for first grade, children must be 6 years old on or before September 1 and have successfully completed kindergarten.
The child’s certified birth certificate is required at the time of registration and only the legal name is acceptable on student records. In addition, parents should bring three proofs of residency, i.e. current mortgage statement, lease or rent agreement and two other forms of residency such as a current electric bill, car registration and/or driver’s license.
A physical examination that has been performed within one year prior to enrollment in school will be accepted. Physical examinations can be acquired from either a private physician or from the county health department.
Additional information on registration and school attendance zones can be obtained from the Student Services Office at 547-7598.
