The 2019 Kindergarten Round-Up will be held at CR Hanna Elementary School (Orion) on:


Tuesday, April 16, 2019 – 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


During the event, parents/guardians will complete the necessary paperwork for students to enter Kindergarten in the fall, distribution of important examination forms, the collection of state birth certificates, proof of residency and answering of any questions that you may have concerning kindergarten. It is important that you attend Round Up as we use this information to compile our kindergarten class lists for the fall, which will not be available until after our school-wide registration in August.  


Although children are welcome to attend Round-Up, their attendance is not required.  Invitations will be distributed for "An Introduction to Kindergarten" to be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, which will help familiarize children with school staff, their future classroom, bus riding, and school policies.  


To be eligible to enter Kindergarten in the fall, a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019.  Proof of birth must be presented at the time of registration.  A certified birth certificate from the state or county office that the child was born in will be accepted.  A hospital certificate will not be accepted.


State law requires that each child entering school for the first time have the following documentation:

  1. Physical examination with up-to-date immunizations

  2. Dental examination

  3. Vision examination by an ophthalmologist or optometrist


ALL parents of incoming Kindergarten students will need to provide Proof of Residency.  Please note even if you have older children in the Orion School District you will be required to provide this information as well.  


Here are a few examples of what the Proof of Residency form requires for new students:


Examples from Category 1 on the form (MUST PROVIDE 1)
