REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR
NORTH CAROLINA AGE REQUIREMENT FOR ENTRANCE TO KINDERGARTEN:
Junior Kindergarten – Must turn 4 years old on or before August 31, 2017
Kindergarten – Must turn 5 on or before August 31, 2017
Elementary first through sixth grade – must have successfully completed the previous grade level
ENTRANCE SCREENING FOR NEW STUDENTS: All new students are required to obtain an entrance screening through ABC Tutoring in Matthews, NC. When you register your child for WCA, contact information will be given to ABC Educational Services. Their office will contact you directly to set up an appointment. Results will be sent to WCA, and a copy will be mailed to the parent.
IMMUNIZATION RECORDS: These must be kept on file at WCA for all students in accordance with NC immunization requirements. Although your child’s previous school may include immunization records when forwarding materials to WCA, the information may not arrive by the beginning of the school year. Returning students must submit updates as needed. (example – entrance into 6th grade) Families who choose NOT to have their child immunized must present either a medical exemption signed by the child’s physician or a written statement of religious exemption. There are no exemptions made for reasons other than the above two categories, in accordance with NC state requirements. In case of an outbreak, the unvaccinated student will not be permitted to attend school.
STUDENT RECORDS FROM PREVIOUS SCHOOLS: Parents of new students will be asked to complete a one-page release form giving WCA permission to request records from your child’s previous school. Parents of preschool students will receive a checklist for your child’s previous teacher(s) to complete and return directly to WCA.
