Kindergarten Roundup

The Blackduck School will be having their Spring Kindergarten Round-up and Registration March 23 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. in the elementary school, room 10.

In order to enroll in kindergarten for the 2012/2013 school year, a child must be five years old by Sept. 1, 2012. Please bring in a birth certificate to verify the date.

Minnesota law requires a complete record of a child's immunizations to be on file at school before the child begins school. Please bring your child's immunization record with you when you come in for Kindergarten Round-up and Registration.

Minnesota law also requires each child entering Kindergarten to have a developmental screening completed before starting kindergarten. If your child has not been screened or if you are unsure, call the number listed below to set up a time during Kindergarten Round-up. An extra hour will be needed to do the screening.

Anyone with a child in this age group who will be attending Blackduck School next fall and did not receive the Kindergarten Round-up letter, please call the elementary office at 835-5300 or bring your child to the Kindergarten Round-up March 23.
