Lexington-Richland School District Five will began enrolling 5-year-old students for kindergarten on January 6.  Registration will take place during regular school office hours, Monday through Friday, excluding school holidays.

School District Five will also offer online registration for 5-year-old kindergarten again this year, providing a convenient way for parents to register their students. The application link is available on the district website and all school websites. Parents and guardians may also visit School District Five elementary schools to register in-person. Students currently enrolled in 4-year-old kindergarten programs in School District Five should not register as “new students.” These students will receive 2020-2021 kindergarten information later this school year.

“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 early 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 Sept. 1, 2020. 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

Online registration is available at https://registration.lexrich5.org/. For more information on School District Five’s 5-year-old kindergarten programs or the online registration form, contact your zoned elementary school.
