Spring Kindergarten Registration

Welcome, we are excited for your child to join Provo City School District! The following will provide you with information regarding the registration of your incoming Kindergarten student. Children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 are eligible for enrollment.  For a Kindergartner seeking enrollment for the current school year visit our Student Registration page.

Kindergarten – Here We Come! Pamphlet

The Utah State Office of Education together with the Utah Family Center and the Office of Child Care developed a pamphlet to support your child’s learning before entering Kindergarten. The pamphlet is available in English and Spanish or for a paper copy please contact your school.

Individuals with Disabilities

Provo City School District is interested in alleviating any unnecessary stress to individuals with disabilities. When students with disabilities are beginning school for the first time in a Provo school, they and their parents are encouraged to visit the school to identify barriers, which may require adaptations to accommodate their needs. To expedite any such accommodations, early contact with the Principal will be helpful.

Immunizations

For kindergarten attendance for the 2021/2022 school year, Utah State law requires the following immunizations for the protection of your child and others from communicable diseases:

  • 5 DTaP*
  • 4 Polio*
  • 2 MMR
  • 3 Hepatitis B
  • 2 Hepatitis A
  • 2 Varicella (Chickenpox)**

*The 5th DTP and 4th Polio immunizations need to be given after the child’s 4th birthday, the first MMR and Chickenpox vaccines must be given after the first birthday.

** Documentation of varicella disease or “chicken pox” must be confirmed by your licensed healthcare provider if no varicella immunization has been given.

Immunizations are available from your personal physician or from the Utah County Health Department (UCHD) at the following times and locations. If your child needs immunizations and you will be getting them at UCHD, please take your records of previous immunizations when you go.

Immunization Exemptions

To claim a personal, religious or medical exemption, the legal guardian must complete an on-line educational module (free of charge) and provide a copy of the completed form to the school official. The on-line course can be found at www.immunize-utah.org. Completion of the online educational module can be done at the Health Department if you do not have access to a computer. For a medical exemption, a written note from a licensed health care provider must be provided along with a copy of the completed online educational module. It should state the physical condition of the student, and why that vaccine would endanger the student’s life or health.

Physicals

A physical examination, including vision screening, and a dental examination are recommended for students entering kindergarten, for the first time. Although exams are not mandatory, they are encouraged as a means of assisting parents and teachers to remain well informed about the child’s physical well-being. Utah County Health Dept. Wellness Clinic performs physicals for $30. Appointments can be made by calling 801-851-7031. Physical and dental exams and immunizations are advised in the Spring and early Summer to avoid crowds in the fall.

Medications During School Hours

If your student has any medical condition that needs attention during school time, please contact the school nurse.

Registration is a 2-step process, mainly done online.

Step 1

Submit basic information beginning March 1st.

The school’s registrar will create a Powerschool Parent Account and send you an email with further instructions. This process will happen once the school begins their Kindergarten process, please refer to the schedule below to know specific dates.  Registrations that are submitted outside of the set period will experience some delay,  once school starts, it will only be a matter of days to complete the process. Please contact your school’s registrar to get a more accurate idea.

Step 2

Login to Powerschool using the information sent to you in the email from the registrar.  This second portion should take approximately 20-30 min. If you need assistance, please contact your school, or visit our office.

Submit the following documents to the school.

  • Child’s birth certificate
  • Child’s immunization records – including dates of all shots, or exception certificates. Children may register but cannot attend school until immunizations are up to date and a copy of the record has been turned into the school. Please see the information about immunization for more details.

  • Photo ID
  • TB testing (if applicable)**

**Utah County requires proof of tuberculosis testing for ALL foreign-born students* entering schools for the first time, and students who have lived in a foreign country* for six months or more within the past five years. *except Canada
