The 2020 Kindergarten Round-Up will be held at C.R. Hanna Elementary School on Wednesday, April 8, 3:00-7:00 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, collection of state birth certificates, proof of residency, and answering 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 6, 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, 2020.  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):
Lease Agreement
Mortgage Papers
Property Tax Bill (most current)
Examples from Category 2 on the form (MUST PROVIDE 2):
Driver's License
Library Card
Utility Bill (with current address)
Vehicle Registration (with current address)
If you have any questions or have a unique living situation, please feel free to contact the C.R. Hanna School Office at (309) 526-3386.
