Ladd kindergarten registration is Wednesday

LADD — Ladd Community Consolidated School has set kindergarten pre-registration day from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Parents of children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 are asked to pre-register their children in the school office. It is not necessary for children to come this day.

To pre-register, parents must bring proof of residency in the Ladd school district and a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate. Proof of residency can be established by submitting mortgage or lease papers and two of the following items: a driver’s license, vehicle registration, voter registration, a utility bill, or an insurance premium receipt. A certified birth certificate can be obtained from the county clerk of the county in which the child was born. A hospital certificate is not acceptable. Parents will be asked to complete an information sheet and receive a packet of information and health exam forms. Each child must have a health exam including a lead screening, a dental exam and an eye exam completed by the first day of school. Parents are reminded to schedule medical appointments early.

It is important that students are pre-registered. If parents/guardians are unable to pre-register on Wednesday, they need to contact the school office at 815-894-2363 for an alternative date.
