A kindergarten roundup for Huntsville Independent School District is happening today.
Parents can register their future Hornet from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the HISD Transportation Department, located at 96 Martin Luther King Drive. To be considered for enrollment, pre-kindergarten students must be four-years-old and kindergarten students must be five-years-old on or before September 1, 2021.
Pre-K is free for all students who meet eligibility requirements, however proof of income is required to help determine eligibility. For students who do not qualify, an affordable tuition-based Pre-K is also available.
Required documentation needed for enrollment includes: an official birth certificate for the child (not a hospital copy), child’s shot record with doctor’s signature or public health verification, child’s social security card and a parent/guardian’s driver’s license or state-issued ID. Additionally, proof of residence is required such as: a current utility bill (water, gas, or electric), deed of trust, property tax statement or an unexpired lease agreement which shows a physical address. Post office boxes are excluded.
If the utility bill is NOT in the parent/guardian’s name, then the person listed on the utility bill must be present with a proper ID.
The new student registration packet along with all enrollment criteria and documentation required can be found posted on the district’s website in both English and Spanish at https://www.huntsville-isd.org.
All district safety protocols will be practiced and face masks are required. Only one parent/guardian per family should attend. The district requests that students and other children not be brought to this event as they will not be allowed in the building during registration.
