School Elementary Enrollment Requirements

When enrolling your child at Southern Elementary, we ask that you as a parent bring the following paperwork at the time of registration.

These documents are required to be on file for every student under Kentucky State Law for the protection of the physical well-being and safety of your child(ren).  

√ Kentucky Immunization Certificate – our school nurse can make a KY Certificate from the current certificate that you have, when shots are current/ valid and the certificate is signed by a physician. If your child needs more immunizations, this has to be done before your child can start school. 

Please be aware that KY State Law requires ALL students to have been immunized for Hepatitis A. This is a series of 2 (two) shots.  An immunization record without the Hepatitis A, will be considered invalid. 

√ Kentucky Physical/ Health Exam - can be completed up to 1 yr. prior to the start of the new school year.

Kentucky Eye Exam - This exam must be done by an Optometrist, form available at school or online:

√ Kentucky Dental Screening - You must use a specific form, available at school or online:
