Kindergarten Registration
    
Keeping Your Child Healthy

As part of registering your child for Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten, you will be sent a packet from your school which contains a two-sided Health & Developmental History Form for you to fill out for your child.  It is essential that you complete this health questionnaire and return it to the school so that the District School Nurse can review your child's health needs prior to entering school.
   
In addition, Maine State Law requires that a child be fully immunized in order to attend school. Please bring a copy of your child's immunization record, signed by your child's physician, to the school when returning all registration forms.
 
As the immunization requirements differ for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students, below are the guidelines to follow for both grades.
 
Maine State Law requires that all children entering a public Pre-Kindergarten Program must have, at a minimum, documentation of the following immunizations:
     4 Doses of Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus Vaccine (DPT/DTaP)
     3 Doses of Polio Vaccine (IPV, OPV)
     1 Dose of Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine (MMR)

     1 Dose of Varicella Vaccine (Chicken Pox) or Documentation from physician
          of having had the Chicken Pox Disease
