To register a student in a Mesa school for the first time, you'll need a certified copy of the student's birth certificate, current immunization record and proof of residency.
By school board policy, most children enrolling in kindergarten will reach the age of 5 by August 31. However, parents of children reaching the age of 5 between September 1 and December 31 may request enrollment in kindergarten if they believe it is in their child's best interest. Children will be enrolled where space is available.
Arizona law requires documentary proof of immunity against certain childhood diseases for students entering Arizona schools for the first time. With some exceptions, students subject to this requirement who lack documentary proof may enroll but not attend school until proof is provided. If your child falls into this category, more detailed information is available at the school.
Immunizations are available from family physicians or pediatricians. Call the Maricopa County Health Department's hot-line at 602-263-8856 for locations and times available.
Parents will be asked to fill out a registration form and an emergency medical referral card.
Proof of residence must also be shown. Parents may provide one of the following:
* Rent receipt
* Utility invoice
* Motor vehicle registration
* Housing contract, lease agreement
* State income tax return
* Bank account, pay check, etc.
* Employer letter on letterhead
