Guilford County Schools will hold two "Kickoff to Kindergarten" information sessions this month.
The sessions will be held Feb. 11 at the Greensboro Children's Museum, and at the High Point Museum on Feb. 18. Sessions will be held at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at both sites.
Information will be available on student assignment, magnet programs, transportation, school nutrition, after-school care options, English as a Second Language, PTAs, Exceptional Children Services and Kindergarten curriculum. Additionally, representatives from neighborhood libraries, doctors offices and 4-year-old programs will be on hand to talk about their services.
Kindergarten registration will open March 1. Children who turn 5 years old by Aug. 31 will be eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2013-14 school year. More information about kindergarten enrollment is available at http://www.gcsnc.com/kindergarten.
There are some required materials parents need to get together before registering their child, including a birth certificate, kindergarten health assessment, immunization record and proof of residence.
