Parents are requested to present the Georgia Immunization Certificate (Form 3231, Rev. 3-2007) at pre-registration. <br /> A current Georgia Immunization Certificate Form 3231 (marked complete for school or incomplete with an expiration date of no more than 30 days) is required before attending the first day of school. The Georgia Social Security Card is requested for all students. Parents may elect to sign a waiver if they prefer not to give the social security number.

Children entering first grade must be six years of age on or before September 1, 2014 in order to be enrolled. <br /> <br /> Call the school office in your attendance area or the Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning (770-534-1080) on any further questions concerning kindergarten or first grade enrollment.
