Lexington-Richland School District Five is reminding parents and guardians in the district about 5-year-old kindergarten registration for the upcoming school year.

While the school year is winding down, registration is still available online and at schools during regular office hours. Online registration is available at

“Kindergarten is an exciting time for students and parents alike, and we are ready to welcome these families into our great community of learners,” said School District Five Director of Elementary Education Tina McCaskill. “We encourage parents to register their children now and learn more about the school, as they prepare for a year of quality teaching and learning in kindergarten.”

To be registered for kindergarten for the upcoming school year, children must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019. Parents of children meeting this eligibility deadline should bring the following to their zoned elementary school:

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 utility bills showing the correct home address

Students currently enrolled in 4-year-old kindergarten programs in School District Five should not register as “new students.” These students will receive kindergarten information soon. For more information on School District Five’s 5-year-old kindergarten programs or the online registration form, contact your zoned elementary school.
