Kindergarten Registration

To register for 5-year-old Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year, students must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019. 

Bring the following documentation to Leaphart Elementary School STEAM Magnet during school hours.

**Documentation Needed:

  • The child's legal birth certificate
  • A current South Carolina Certificate of Immunization, or a South Carolina Certificate of Medical or Religious Exemption
  • A property tax receipt or a rental lease showing All occupants
  • Two current utility bills showing the correct home address
  • Parent Identification




It is very important that immunizations are up to date so your child is not excluded from school. South Carolina School & Day Care Requirements are the legal minimum requirements for a child to attend school and/or day care in South Carolina. It is recommended that you ask your child's medical provider to give you a new certificate when your child receives additional vaccines and always provide a copy to the school nurse.

Five year old kindergarten students must have certificates on file showing 4 year old vaccines. If your child will be in 5 year old kindergarten next school year, it is especially important that immunization requirements are met. You may provide a copy of your child's immunization certificate to the school during summer months. You may provide certificates now before the end of this school year if your child received vaccines during this school year.
