February 18th, 2021 Dear Blackhawk families,
Registration and screening for the incoming kindergarten students will be held on Tuesday, March 16th and Wednesday, March 17th from 8:00am - 12:30pm. The elementary office should be contacted at 812-936-4820 to make an appointment. Screening and registration will take approximately 1 hour. All students will need to wear tennis shoes for one segment of the screening. Masks will also be required to be worn by anyone entering the elementary building. As of now, our kindergarten teachers for next year will be Tara Allstott, Janelle Crews, and Virginia Neukam. However, changes may be made if enrollment numbers warrant. These ladies are looking forward to welcoming your child to our Blackhawk family when school begins in the Fall. It has been our policy that we do not accept parent requests for teachers. Our kindergarten teachers are strong educators and will ensure your child has a successful year.
The screening process will include assessments in the areas of Motor Skills, Academics, and Receptive Auditory Vocabulary. Hearing, Speech & Language screenings will also be conducted the day of your appointment. For registration, parents will need to provide an official birth certificate issued by the county or state in which the child was born as well as their social security card. The birth certificate must show that the child will be 5 years old on or before October 1st, 2021. Proof of residency and any current custody papers (if applicable) shall also be provided during registration.
The child's immunization records are also required. Students who have not completed the immunization requirements for school entry will be allowed to register, but if the state requirements are not met by the opening of school next fall, then attendance is prohibited by law. Please contact Ms. Ingle, RN (School Nurse), prior to the opening of school if special circumstances exist which will not allow the immunization requirements to be met. The Orange County Health Department, at the county complex in Paoli, provides low-cost or free immunizations for County youth (through age 18) who are uninsured, whose insurance does not cover the required vaccination, or who are enrolled in Medicaid. Their hours are Mon-Fri
Sam-noon and 1pm-4pm and they can be reached at 812-723-7112.
