With the end of school coming quickly, school districts are already planning budgets and personnel needs for next year. To plan effectively, registering children for kindergarten now is essential. Students must be 5 by September 1, 2016 to register for kindergarten at Cline Elementary and Westwood Elementary.
A special kindergarten registration will take place Tuesday, May 3 from 5-6:30 pm in the cafeteria of your zoned campus.
Where you live in Friendswood (Galveston County section) determines which school your child will attend. If parents are not sure if their school is Cline or Westwood, they can go to http://myfisd.com/trans/ and use the route locator. It will show where the bus will pick up children as well as what schools they will attend from that address.
Transportation Department also takes calls and will tell parents by phone or in person which school. The following documents are required for registration. Bring the original plus a copy to leave at the school for their records.
Original Birth Certificate
Child’s Social Security Card
Driver License of Parents/Guardians
Proof of residency-utility bill, lease contract, closing papers
If building a home in FISD, proper documentation forms are available at the Administration office at 302 Laurel. These will help you show proof of residency.
Immunizations required include the following:
DTP/DTaP or DT – At least 5 doses, of which at least one dose was received since the 4th birthday.
Oral Polio – A minimum of 4 doses, one of which has been received since the 4th birthday.
