2015-2016 Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Registration Announced


Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten registration begins at Central Elementary on

Monday, April 27, and will continue until May 7th.  We will also take registrations from

August 10 – 13.

Registration will be conducted on school days from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on MWF and 8:00-11:30 a.m. on TT.   We will not be taking any registrations on the first day of school.


PREKINDERGARTEN . . . The four-year-old Pre-Kindergarten program will be offered to all four-year-olds as long as space permits.  Three-year olds will continue to have to qualify for the program.  Students enrolled in the A.M. Pre-Kindergarten program will have free breakfast. Students enrolled in the PM classes who are not eligible for free and reduced meals will be able to buy lunch just as other students are currently able to do.  In order to register a four year old child for Pre-K he/she must be four years old on or before September 1, 2015.  Both four year olds and three year olds will still need to provide the (4) most recent paystubs for all income earners in the household.  Register your child as soon as possible so we can plan for next year.   Hours for PK are AM Class – 7:45-10:45 and PM Class – 11:45 – 2:45.


KINDERGARTEN . . . registration for new students who are not currently enrolled in PK at Central Elementary.  Head Start students must register.  Students must be 5 years old before September 1, 2015.  Hours for Kinder are 7:45 – 2:45.


In order to enroll in either program, you must have the following documents with you at the time of registration:

  • Courthouse Birth Certificate
  • Social Security Card-optional – state id will be assigned if they don’t have a SSN.
  • Valid Driver’s License or other form of official photo id (passport/visa)
  • Proof of Residence-has to be one of the following:  utility bill or rental/lease agreement or letter from owner

of the property where you are residing and one of the utility bills in their name.

  • Proof of Income (for 3 & 4 year old PK Program)-4 consecutive pay stubs  of ALL household wage earners
  • Immunization Record


Immunization requirements for Pre-Kindergarten:

  • DPT - 5 doses or 4 doses meet requirements if the 4th dose was given ON or AFTER 4TH birthday
  • Polio - 4 doses or 3 doses meet the requirement if the 3rd dose was given ON or AFTER  4TH birthday
  • MMR  - 2 doses, first dose must be given ON or AFTER 1st birthday
  • Hepatitis B - 3 doses;
  • Varicella - 2 doses, the first dose must be received ON or AFTER the 1st birthday or provide written

documentation of history of illness

  • Hepatitis A  - 2 doses, the first dose must be received ON or AFTER the 1st birthday
  • TB skin test must be after 2nd birthday; repeat if moving here from another state or

country or has been out of the country for over 30 days. TB is not a state required immunization but is required by our district.

  • Pneumococcal Vaccine – 3 doses with 1 dose ON or AFTER 12 months of age, or 2 doses with both doses

ON or AFTER 12 months of age, or 1 dose ON or AFTER 2 years of age

  • Hib – 2 doses plus a booster dose ON or AFTER 12 months of age (3 total).  If a child receives the 1st dose

at 12-14 months of age, only 1 additional dose is required (2 doses total).  Any child who has received a

single dose ON or AFTER 15 months of age meets the requirement.


Parent or legal guardian must also present their current Texas Driver’s license or other photo identification showing the parent or guardian’s date of birth.  


It is very helpful to the school if you will register your child as soon as possible so we can plan for next year.
