LCES Kindergarten Registration

Welcome to Kindergarten!

If your child has turned 5 on or before August 31st, 2022, you may register them for Kindergarten!  On-line enrollment is available at lacenterschools.org or at the elementary office from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.  Here is some information to help guide you through the registration process:

OPEN REGISTRATION STARTS APRIL 11th – 22nd

We are unable to accept registrations BEFORE APRIL 11th

We require the following:

 

Legal, state-issued birth certificate

Residency Verification documentation

Home Language Survey

Student Health History

Family Emergency Plan

Current Immunization record

All of these forms can be found under New/Returning Student Registration on our website:

www.lacenterschools.org

 Immunization records must be turned into the school office on or before the first day of attendance.

Shot records must be from a health care provider, or you must attach paperwork from a health care provider to your handwritten form that shows your child’s records are accurate.  If your child was immunized in the state of Washington, the office can also print a current Certificate of Immunization form.

Your child cannot attend school until you provide these records.

If you choose to exempt your child from immunizations, a Certificate of Exemption form is available from the office and requires a doctor’s signature.

If your child has a life-threatening health condition (asthma, allergies, etc.) requiring medication at school, please contact our nurse, Danielle Rivers, at 360-263-2134, ext. 2118 or danielle.rivers@lacenterschools.org  for important information.

 Your child will be assessed here at the school either June 9th or June 10th.  The information gathered helps teachers find the best possible placement for your child.  Assessments can be scheduled online using SignUp.com – http://signup.com/go/RcoggTx

For children that have completed the assessment, you will receive an email over the summer regarding class placement, along with a link to sign up for a Family Connection (WA Kids) meeting.  This family connection meeting is an opportunity for the teacher to get to know you and your child a little better!  If you are unable to make the scheduled assessment the end of June, your child will be rescheduled for assessment in August and will have to wait until school starts to determine class placement.

Family connection conferences (WA Kids) are estimated to take about 45 minutes and will be held the last week of August.  Teachers will reach out to families during the summer to schedule times.

Immunization Requirement Information

Dear Parent or Guardian,

For all newly enrolled students, all immunization records turned in to schools are required by state law to be medically verified. Immunization records must be turned into the school on or before the first day of attendance. This means immunization records turned in to the school must be from a health care provider, or you must attach paperwork from a health care provider to your handwritten form that shows your child’s records are accurate. Your child cannot attend school until you provide these records.

Here are some examples of medically verified immunization records:
• A completed Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) signed by a health care provider. Find the CIS form by visiting https://www.doh.wa.gov/SCCI and clicking on “Certificate of Immunization Status.”
• A CIS filled out by you or another parent/guardian with medical records attached.
• A CIS printed by a health care provider or school from the Washington State Immunization Information System.
• A CIS printed from MyIR which is a free Department of Health online tool that allows families to view and print their official immunization records themselves. Go to https://wa.myir.net/register to begin the sign-up process.

If the printed CIS from the school or MyIR is missing any required immunizations for school attendance, medical records will need to be provided to the school office.
If you are requesting an exemption from one or more of the immunization requirements, you must provide the school a completed Certificate of Exemption.
If you have any questions regarding immunization requirements, please contact the school your child will attend or visit the department of health website at: www.doh.wa.gov.

La Center Elementary School (360) 263-2134
La Center Middle School (360) 263- 2136

myIR - My Immunization Record

What is MyIR?

MyIR stands for “My Immunization Record” and it’s an electronic portal for consumers to directly access their official state immunization records online.  In the past, consumers could only get their immunization records by calling or visiting a healthcare provider or their child’s school or contacting the state health department. This process can be time-consuming and burdensome for providers, patients, school staff, and state health departments, particularly during kindergarten registration, back-to-school season, or disease outbreaks when providers receive a high volume of immunization record requests. Registering for MyIR gives consumers a secure, easy method for accessing their and their dependents’ immunization records in real time.
