Kemper County School District schedules kindergarten registration


Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten pre-registration is open for the future Class of 2034 and 2035 in Kemper County.

The pre-registration process is to be in person on April 20 – 22 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Kemper County Lower Elementary in Scooba and Kemper County Upper Elementary in DeKalb.

 “We are encouraging parents and guardians to pre-register students to help the district with appropriate planning, scheduling, and screening for Pre-Kindergarteners and Kindergarteners for the 2021-2022 school year,” said Dr. Jeri Cawthorn, Kemper County Lower Elementary School principal. “We conduct pre-registrations in Kemper County to also help alleviate the burdens and stresses that sometimes come with general registration.”

In order to pre-register a child for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten, parents or guardians will need to bring a photo ID and two forms of proof of residency, which can include a mortgage statement or rental agreement, or utility bills. The child’s original birth certificate, social security card, and immunization records are also required.

“The district is planning for these events to take place in-person while still practicing social distancing and other safety protocols,” said Tyresia Brown, Kemper County Upper Elementary School principal. “We are excited about the upcoming school year and are looking forward to meeting many new smiling faces.”
