GAINESVILLE - Registration for Hall County School System (HCSS) children entering kindergarten next fall will be held at each of the district's elementary schools March 25 and March 26h from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. On March 27, registration will again be from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and an evening registration will be from 4:00 p.m.to 7:00 p.m. <br /> <br /> Enrolling kindergarteners should accompany parents for pre-registration. <br /> <br /> In order to be enrolled, children entering kindergarten must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1, 2014. Parents must present child's birth certificate for pre-registration. Proof of current residence (lease agreement, power bill, etc.) must be presented. 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.
