What Do I Need to Enroll My Child?
You will be asked for the following items at the time of registration:
Completed registration forms. Click here to fill out forms online.
Evidence of birth date (a certified birth certificate, baptismal certificate, hospital certificate, notarized statement of birth or a passport.)
- The Report of Health Examination for School Entry for entry to kindergarten and first grade must be signed and dated by the doctor performing the physical. The physical exam may be done up to a maximum of six months prior to entry into kindergarten.
Parent/guardians need to submit either proof of a physical exam or waiver (see below for explanation) for K enrollment. If your physician’s office charges to complete ‘outside’ forms, proof of the exam can be submitted on the physician’s form.
Board Policy 5141.32: The parent/guardian of a student enrolling in Kindergarten shall submit a certification form (physical exam form) and signed by the student's health examiner certifying that the student has completed a comprehensive health screening within 18 months prior to entry into first grade or within 90 days thereafter. (Health and Safety Code 124040, 124085)
In lieu of the certification, the parent/guardian may submit a waiver indicating that he/she does not want or is unable to obtain a health screening. If the waiver indicates that the parent/guardian was unable to obtain the services, the reasons should be included in the waiver. (Health and Safety Code 124085) Waivers are available at the school site.
Parents can contact the ChildHealth and Disability Prevention Program for more information for assistance for low-income families in obtaining a health exam http://dhcs.ca.gov/services/chdp/Pages/default.aspx
6. Proof of Dental Assessment: English |Spanish Students enrolling in Kindergarten/TK (or First Grade, if not previously enrolled in Kindergarten), shall present proof of having received an oral health assessment by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional, that was performed no earlier than 12 months before the date of first enrollment.
Parents may be excused from complying with this requirement by indicating on the form that the oral assessment could not be completed because of one or more reasons provided on the form.
Oral health is important because if a child has poor dental health, it could impact their overall health. Baby teeth are very important. Tooth decay is an infection that does not heal and if not treated, could permanently damage their adult teeth or cause other serious health concerns. Children must be healthy to learn and children with cavities can impact their health. Regular check ups can prevent tooth decay or other problems.
