Kindergarten registration for the 2017-2018 school year will take place at each elementary school on April 10 and 11, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM. The birthday cutoff for kindergarten in Kentucky is moving up two months from Oct. 1 to Aug. 1 for the 2017-18 school year. The change means that most children will have to turn 5 by Aug. 1, 2017, in order to enter kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year. Each child registering should bring copies of the following: birth certificate, immunization records, proof of residency. Other records required by the first day of school include a physical, eye vision screening, and dental screening.
