Kindergarten Registration Information

Children who are 5 years old on or before September 30th can start Kindergarten in September . But first, they need to be registered. To register your child, bring the following items to your elementary school:

  • An original certified State Birth Certificate; 
  • A certificate of physical examination from a physician or a health department; 
  • An immunization certificate containing complete dates for Hepatitis B, DPT, Polio, Varicella, and MMR immunizations; 
  • Proof of residency in the City of Suffolk (i.e. water bill, gas bill, or electric bill. Driver’s license will not be accepted).

Call the Parent Resource Center at 934-6202 or use the School Locator at to find out which school your child should attend.
