Kindergarten Registration



Registration for children entering kindergarten will begin on Monday, February 4, 2019 and will continue through Friday, March 29, 2019.  Children who will turn five years old on or before August 31, 2019 will need to be registered between those dates.  Parents must register their child(ren) at the school they will attend.  Registration for first graders new to Lincoln County Schools will also occur at that time.


To register your child, the following information must be presented:

  • certified copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • 2 proofs of residency –i.e., Active NC Driver’s License, Photo ID issued by state DMV, Utility Bill in person’s name (cell phone bills will not be accepted), Lease Agreement, Real Property Tax Bill
  • Documented evidence of immunizations as per state law. Please see your health care provider or the Lincoln County Health Department with specific questions regarding this.
  • A health assessment – This should be completed by your health care provider prior to the start of school, but must be completed no later than 30 days after school begins. Failure to provide this information will result in the child being excluded from school.  Assessment forms are available at each school.  All sections of the assessment (including developmental, hearing, and vision) must be completed.
  • A picture ID will be required of the parent or guardian registering the student.


Parents of children who need immunizations or a health assessment should take their child to their health care provider or to the Lincoln County Health Department immediately to complete these requirements prior to the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.
