Kindergarten Registration 2021-22

We are ready to register our incoming kindergarteners - please help us spread the word! Here are three steps to follow for a successful enrollment process.

Step 1. Complete the Enrollment Packet

Families can complete the online application packet as outlined in the OCSB Kindergarten Roundup Flyer, OR, they can come and pick up a paper packet from our school office.

Step 2. Register for an Enrollment Appointment and Screening

It is essential that families will schedule an enrollment meeting to review the packet. We ask that you bring the incoming kindergarten student to the meeting for a screening. Enrollment and screening meetings can be scheduled for Monday, May 17 or Wednesday, May 19 by calling our data processor Mrs. Cathy Storey at 863-462-5100.

Please ensure that you have the following documents with you when you come to your Kindergarten enrollment meeting. Students will NOT be registered until we have the complete enrollment packet and the following documents on file:

  • Birth Certificate
  • A current physical examination on Form #3040 (To be valid, the physical must have been completed within a year of school entry date and signed by a licensed physician)
  • A Florida Certificate of Immunization on Form #680, completed by a physician or the Okeechobee County Health Department
  • Proof of Address (Ex. utility bill, property tax certificate, rent agreement in parent/guardian’s name OR, Zonewaiver Application if out of our school zone)
  • Custody Papers, if applicable

Parent/guardian needs to bring a photo ID (Driver’s License)

Step 3. Attend the Enrollment Meeting During Scheduled Time

Please keep in mind that NES is currently closed to the public.
You will only be admitted during your scheduled appointment time. Only one guardian and the child who is being enrolled will be admitted.
