The Adair County R-II School (Brashear) will conduct its annual kindergarten registration on Wednesday, April 5 and Thursday, April 6 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Brashear Elementary School.
All district children who will be five years old before August 1, 2000 are eligible to register for kindergarten for the 2000-2001 school year.
Parents of kindergarten age children must bring the following for registration: (1) the child's official state-issued birth certificate-the hospital or county issued birth record is not acceptable; (2) the child's up-to-date immunization records; and (3) the child's social security card. The above mentioned records must be on file before the child may attend kindergarten in the fall.
Kindergarten aged children will have a vision, hearing, height, weight, and general health assessment at the time of registration so you must bring your child when you register. The Adair County Health Department will be here to administer immunizations if needed. This year we plan to do a kindergarten entrance test. It will take approximately 40 minutes.
The preschool screening for all children ages birth to kindergarten age will be held during the same hours and at the same location as the kindergarten registration. We recommend that all district children ages birth to kindergarten be developmentally screened at this time also.
Please call the school at 323-5272 for further information
and/or to schedule an appointment to register and screen your
child. Walk-ins are welcome, but you may have to wait to register.
