Kindergarten Enrollement

Kindergarten registration/round-up for the 2019-2020 school year will be conducted Tuesday, February 12, 2019, for the Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools.  Please note the registration process is online but attendance is still required Tuesday, February 12, 2019. Feel free to start the online registration process for your kindergarten child(ren) prior to the enrollment/round-up day. Online registration will open Monday, January 21.  Please go to the school website your child(ren) will be attending, then click on the kindergarten round-up tab. See below:


Both Ireland and Fifth Street Elementary Schools will each host enrollment/round-up in your child(ren) respective buildings Tuesday, February 12, 2019, from:

  • 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

  • 4:00 p.m. –   6:30 p.m.


At registration/round-up, your child(ren) will be able to meet and spend fifteen minutes one-on-one with a kindergarten teacher. During this time the teacher will talk with your child(ren), will help them feel comfortable, and will ask a few questions to gain a better understanding of his/her skill level. At this time parents/guardian will be able to complete registration at the school. Please allow approximately 30 minutes for this process as teachers look forward to meeting with each family.


For registration/round-up, parents will need to bring the following items to be copied:

  1. An original birth certificate indicating your son/daughter will be 5 years old on or before August 1, 2019, (this can be obtained from the Health Department in the county in which your child was born). The certificate from the hospital, in which your child was born, is not considered

a legal document.  

  1. Original Social Security card

  2. The immunization record, dates of serious illness, accidents, or operations for your child.  A student who has not completed the immunization requirements for school entry will be allowed to register; however, your child(ren) must be in compliance with Indiana State Law by the opening of school in the fall.
