Lew-Port kindergarten registration approachingby jmaloni
The Lewiston-Porter School District announces that the kindergarten registration process for students entering school this fall will be getting under way in coming weeks.
"We are delighted to welcome you and your kindergartner to our program," said Tamara Larson, principal of the Lewiston-Porter Primary Education Center. "The first step toward the kindergarten adventure is the registration process."
She reports that parents of children who will be 5 years old on or before Dec. 1, 2013, may register their child on the following dates:
•Tuesday, March 12, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. for families whose last name begin with the letter A through F. For families whose last names begin with G through M, registration is from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.
•Wednesday, March 13, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. for families whose last name begin with the letter N through S. For families whose last names begin with T through M, registration is from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.
Larson adds it is not necessary for parents to bring their child to this registration, as they will be invited to a kindergarten orientation event in May.
Parents will need to furnish the following at time of registration: proof of age: the child's birth certificate and/or passport; parent photo ID: a driver's license and/or passport; and proof of residency. This may include two of the following documents: vehicle registration, vehicle insurance card, utility bill, medical insurance card, homeowner's insurance statement or payroll document.
Other acceptable documents are a lease, purchase offer, or letter from a homebuilder on the firm's letterhead. These documents must be signed and include the resident's name, district address, and closing date and/or certificate of occupancy.
Parents will also need to furnish a record of immunizations for their child at time of registration. All documents will be photocopied and returned to the parent.
