Kindergarten registration for the Auburn School District’s 2016 -2017 school year has begun. Parents are encouraged to register their five-year-old child (those who will be age five by August 31, 2016) as soon as possible. Early registration will help us plan effectively, have sufficient staff, and create a smooth introduction for students entering kindergarten. Elementary schools are open for registration between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday.
At the time of registration, please bring your child’s official birth certificate. In accordance with State law, parents must present up-to-date immunization information before registering their child(ren) in school. Please contact your elementary school office manager for an updated list of required immunizations, which includes:
MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) – 2 doses (1st dose on or after first birthday; 2nd dose at least 28 days after 1st dose).
DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) – 5 doses (4 doses if 4th dose given after 4th birthday).
Polio – 4 doses (3 doses if 3rd dose given after the 4th birthday. The final dose given on or after August 7, 2009 must be given at a minimum of 4 years of age and a minimum interval of 6 months from the previous dose).
Hepatitis B (3-shot series at required intervals)
Varicella (chicken pox) – 2 doses (1st dose on or after first birthday; 2nd dose at least 28 days after 1st dose. Blood titer or medical provider diagnosis is needed for verification of disease).
