The documents needed to register can be found below:
Documents parents should be prepared to upload:
- Birth certificate or other official record of birth (TN birth certificates can be obtained by calling the Rutherford County Health Department at 615-898-7880)
- Tennessee Department of Health Certificate of Immunization* See Below
- Proof of residence ** See Below
- Current proof of custody of the child if parents are divorced, separated or unmarried.
*A list of all health requirements can be found HERE. To get a Tennessee Department of Health Certificate of Immunization, parents should contact their child's health care provider or the Health Department to schedule an appointment for a kindergarten physical. At that time, any additional shots that may be needed will be given to meet state requirements for entrance into school and a Certificate of Immunization will be issued.
** Proof of residence is current utility bills – electric, gas or water – with the parent's name and address printed on it. If parents have not been living at the residence long enough to have a utility bill, a lease on a house or apartment will be accepted, or you can get a statement from the utility company showing you have started service at the specific address.
Detailed information on immunizations can be found HERE.
**If you prefer to enroll in person, you may come to the school beginning April 1 (during school hours) and pick up a paper packet. The paper packet will need to be returned with all the documents by April 23rd.
