Kindergarten registration information

Bulloch County Schools will host Kindergarten Registration for the 2016-2017 school year May 2-6, 2016, at each of its nine elementary schools. Beginning May 2, parents and guardians may pick up registration packets at any elementary school during normal office hours, 7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Parents and guardians should return completed packets to their zoned elementary school by end of the school day on May 6. During this time, you may also schedule an appointment for your child to be tested.

Only a child's parent or legal guardian may register a child for school. A child being enrolled in kindergarten must be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2016.

Please note,  If your child is currently enrolled in a Bulloch County Schools Pre-Kindergarten classroom, he or she does not need to be registered for kindergarten unless he or she will be attending a different school than where he or she attended pre-k.
