Children must be 5 years old on or before Aug. 15, 2020, in order to be eligible to start kindergarten during the 2020-2021 school year.

At West Cheatham Elementary School, registration packets will be available for pickup at the front door of the school May 4-8. They will be in a tub marked “Kindergarten Registration Packets.”

Parents can return their completed packets on Monday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Any copies and/or pictures can be scanned to attendance secretary Pam Brown at pam.brown@ccstn.org. Registration questions may also be sent to Mrs. Brown.

Below (under attached files), you can download a packet that includes all the required forms that need to be completed. Both English and Spanish versions are available.

You can print the forms, fill them out and return to the schools on the designated dates for each school (see schedule above) or you can email the forms, along with all the required documents, to the individual listed for each school.

The following required documents include:

• Proof of child’s age (birth certificate, passport, tax return or medical document)

Students will not be allowed to attend kindergarten until the required documents are received.
