Elementary Registration is July 30th!!!
All Camden Elementary students and parents—both new and returning—should plan to attend registration July 30 at the school. Registration will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 to 6 p.m.
“These registration days allow us to make important contact with our students and their families,” said Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan. “Students and parents can find out who their children’s teachers are and learn valuable information about the new school year.”
Morgan said that persons can download and complete necessary forms from the district’s website to bring with them to registration to speed up the process.
Parents can also complete applications for free and reduced priced meals online. Families must reapply for this status each year and doing the paperwork online before school starts helps speed up the notification process.
All forms will be available at the schools if persons do not download them in advance of registration.
Again this school year, a fee schedule has been implemented due to reduced local and state revenue. Fees will be assessed according to a student’s meal status as stated below:
Kershaw County School Board policy requires parents to bring to registration the following documents to enroll a student for the first time: a copy of the child's birth certificate, the child’s South Carolina Certificate of Immunization, a parent/guardian’s valid South Carolina driver’s license, a tax document with the current and correct address, a check stub with the current and correct address, either a mortgage or lease agreement or legally notarized documentation from the landlord and a current (two months or less) utility bill (electric or water) that contains the student’s address. A child’s registration will not be complete without this documentation.
Parents of returning students who have already established the student’s residency will be required to provide a current (two months or less) utility bill (electric or water) that contains the student’s address in order to register.
Immunization requirements for school are mandated by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. Students who do not have or have not previously presented a S.C. Certification of Immunization that indicates they have completed or begun the immunization requirements will not be allowed to complete their registration. Shots and the immunization certificate may be obtained through the student’s physician or the Kershaw County Health Department.
New immunization requirements mandate that 7th and 8th graders must receive or have already received a dose of Tdap vaccine on or after their 7th birthday to protect them from pertussis (whooping cough) and students in 5K must have received two doses of the Varicella vaccine. Parents will need to present new South Carolina Certificates of Immunization showing that these students have received this immunizations.
Complete information about the schedule of immunizations required by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control for the 2014-2015 school year can be accessed on the DHEC website. Parents who have questions or are unsure of their child’s immunization status should ask their child’s physician, health department or school nurse.
Registrations are held to verify student enrollment and to share information with students and parents concerning class assignments, bus routes, lunch programs, school rules and regulations and other information about the upcoming school year.
Persons who are unable to register on the indicated day should contact their school’s office prior to Aug. 18, the first day of school for students.
& Family Fun Day!
