What Do I Need to Have to Register My Child?


All Lincoln County Schools students must reside with a parent or court-appointed legal guardian who is a district resident.  To enroll you will need the following items:

  • 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 completed health assessment – This form will be provided to you upon registering your child at your assigned school or you can click here to download the form.  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.  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 to complete these requirements prior to the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. 


What Happens After I Register My Child?

Upon registering your child for kindergarten at their assigned school, the school will contact you in late spring to schedule an appointment for the Kindergarten Screening.  Each school uses the Brigance Early Childhood Screening Tool to assess students to facilitate classroom placement.
