East Feliciana schools slate registrations

The East Feliciana Parish public school system will conduct pre-kindergarten and kindergarten registration at three elementary schools this week.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at each school, starting with Slaughter Elementary on Wednesday; Clinton Elementary on Thursday; and Jackson Elementary on Friday.

Children must by 4 years old by Sept. 30 to enroll in pre-kindergarten classes for the 2013-14 school year and 5 years old by the same date to enroll in kindergarten.

Children who did not attend kindergarten during the current school year but were eligible to attend should register for first grade at the same times.

Parents must provide their names and the students’ names, along with addresses and phone numbers.

Each child also must have a birth certificate, Social Security card and completed immunization record.

Students enrolling in the LA-4 programs must qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.

Anyone having questions about registering a child is asked to contact the school’s principal.
