Fall School Registration Held
(07-10-2010)

Registration for all students entering the St. Tammany Parish public schools for the first time during the 2010-2011 School Year began Wednesday, July 28, and will continue through Friday, July 30, at the school the student will attend.  Different schools will register on different days. The registration schedule date for each school is printed below.

Parents wishing to register their children outside the Spring or Fall Registration Dates may visit the school where their children will attend for more information and to register if they have the required documentation (See below). If unsure which school their children will attend, they may contact the Supervisors of Child Attendance and Welfare, either Chris O'Regan at the Covington Annex (406 East Boston Street, phone 985-898-3370) or Michael Soniat at the Slidell Annex (980 Ninth Street, phone 985-646-4917).

An Assignment/Transfer Request Form must be completed for students changing schools within St. Tammany Parish (other than students going to another school because of grade promotion), students who are entering the School System from home schooling, and parents or court-appointed guardians who do not have the required proof of residency. The forms are available at the Child Welfare and Attendance offices located at the Covington School Board Annex at 406 East Boston Street or the Slidell School Board Annex at 980 Ninth Street.  An Assignment Letter must be obtained from one of  these offices before registering at the school they will attend. 

Every child, as a prerequisite to enrollment in any first grade of a public school, shall meet one of the following criteria: have attended a full-day public or private kindergarten for a full academic year;  or have satisfactorily passed academic readiness screening at the time of enrollment for first grade. Students who have completed kindergarten at an accredited private school must furnish proof of attendance. 

Any child born before October 1, 2004, will be eligible for the first grade, and any child born before October 1, 2005, will be eligible for kindergarten.

     2.  Proof of Residency
     3.  Social Security Card
     4.  Health Record of Required Immunization
     5.  Report Card/Records from last School/LEAP results (for in-state transfer)
     6.  Assignment Letter (if applicable); and
     7.  Custody Papers (if applicable)

State Certified Birth Certificate.  Those who do not have a birth certificate may contact a St. Tammany Parish School Board Annex in their area for information on how to obtain one.  Contact the Covington Annex at 985-898-3370 or the Slidell Annex at 985-646-4917.
 
Proof of Residency.  Proof of Residency must be established, using at least three of the documents listed
below.  Documents that are suspect or inconclusive may be disallowed and additional documentation may be required.  All documents must be the most current available.

Documentation may consist of a current utility bill (butane, electric, gas, water, cable, or satellite), the current year W-2 forms, the most recent federal or state income tax returns, a vehicle insurance print-out from the parent’s or guardian’s insurance company, a signed residential building contractor agreement, a signed real estate lease agreement, or signed mortgage loan documentation.  All documents must show the name of the parent or guardian, the utility service address (if using utility bills), and the street or road address of residence.  Lease agreements must show street or road location and must be from a real estate office, apartment complex, or mobile home property, not from an individual.
 
U. S. Post Office box numbers, printed checks, or drivers’ licenses are NOT considered proof of residency.

Social Security Card.  The Social Security number serves as a student identification number on all records. 

The Social Security number written on a piece of paper cannot be accepted.
 
Health Record.  State Law requires that all children attending school in the State of Louisiana have the
following immunizations.  This requirement includes students in the Title 1 four-year-old program and in Pre-kindergarten through grade 12.  Included are students who are coming into the St. Tammany Parish Public School System from another parish, state, or nonpublic school.

     1. DTP  (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis or Whooping Cough) – A minimum of four (4) doses is required.  The last DTP or a booster is to be given after the fourth birthday.         

     2. Polio – A minimum of three (3) doses is required.  The last polio or booster is to be given after the fourth birthday.

     3. MMR  (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) -  One (1) dose is required at twelve to fifteen months of age.  A second MMR is required before entry to school.

     4. Hepatitis B – Three (3) doses are required for first time enrollees into Louisiana public schools.

     5. HIB – Four (4) doses or proof of at least one dose after fifteen (15) months of age are required for pre-kindergarten and noncategorical students to enter school.

     6. Varicella (Chickenpox) – Two (2) doses or a history of the disease is required for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten.

     7. MCV4 (Meningococcal Conjugate) – Required for all students entering grade 6 or eleven (11) years old in any other grade.  These students must also have proof of booster doses of Tdap, MMR, and Chickenpox.

Dates of the above required immunizations must be recorded on an official immunization form and presented to the school at the time of registration.  Contact the Slidell Health Unit at (985) 646-6445, the Covington Community Wellness Center at  (985) 871-6030, the Greater New Orleans (GNO) Immunization Network Mobile Unit at (504) 733-3268 for immunization information.

The immunization policy of the St. Tammany Parish School Board dictates that no child be allowed to enter school without proof of immunizations.

Report Card/Records from Last School/LEAP Results.  To ensure correct grade placement of new students, a report card and standardized test reports from the last school the student attended must be presented. 

Students entering fifth and ninth grades from in-state public, nonpublic or any home schooling program are required to show evidence that they have passed the English/Language Arts and the Mathematics sections of the LEAP (Louisiana Educational Assessment Program) test, as mandated by the State of Louisiana. 

For more information about the LEAP requirements, contact the St. Tammany Parish Public School System Testing Coordinator at (985) 898-6481.

Assignment Letter.  Students who are transferring within the St. Tammany Parish Public School System (other than those being promoted to a higher grade from feeder schools), students who are entering the School System from home schooling, and parents or court-appointed guardians who do not have the required proof of residency (see Proof of Residency for requirements) must obtain assignment letters from a St. Tammany Parish School Board Annex in their area.  Contact the Covington Annex at (985) 898-3370 or the Slidell Annex at (985) 646-4917 for additional information.  The Child Welfare and Attendance offices are located at 406 East Boston Street in Covington and 980 Ninth Street in Slidell.

Custody Papers.  Parents or guardians granted custodial rights of a student must present at registration the custody papers granted through a court system.
 
All public schools in St. Tammany Parish will open Monday, August 9, 2010.
