Parkway Kindergarten Registration Begins February 1

The Parkway School District will begin half-day and full-day kindergarten registration for the 2006-2007 school year on Feb. 1, 2006 at all Parkway elementary schools. Students must be five years old before August 1 to enter kindergarten. Bring the following information at the time of registration: - an official birth certificate issued by the Office of Vital Records of the state/country in which the child was born; - the child's social security number; - the child's immunization records; - names and telephone numbers of child's doctor and dentist; - names and telephone numbers of two neighbors/relatives who can be contacted in case of an emergency; and - two proofs of parent/guardian's residency. These documents should contain parent/guardian's name and address. One proof of residency must be a deed/sales contract of residence, contract to lease/rent, or current real estate tax receipt. The other proof of residency should be a current unpaid utility bill, bank statement, credit card statement, employer's record of address, or governmental acknowledgement of address (i.e., Social Security, welfare, voter registration, etc.) Tuition for full-day kindergarten is $3,025 for the 2006-07 school year. A deposit of $100 is required at the time of registration for full-day kindergarten. If more than 23 applications are received for full-day for any school, the school will conduct a random drawing to determine enrollment in the full day program.
