Pre-registration for Rusk Head Start, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten is set for May 3 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Age requirements that must be met by Sept. 1, 2013 include 5 years old for kindergarten, 4 years old for full day Head Start/pre-kindergarten and 3 years old for ½ day pre-kindergarten.
To register a child, parents will need to bring their current check stub and 2012 income tax return, W-2, and/or TANIF verification as proof of income. All applicants need to bring a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, social security card, proof of residency and complete immunization record.
Cherokee County Health Department will be available during enrollment from 8 a.m. to noon at the Primary school to give shots to eligible children through the TVFC program. This registration is held to ensure that a sufficient number of classes can be planned for the coming school year.
We must have 80 students pre-enroll to keep pre-K classes as we have them now. Parents may call the school at 903-683-6106 for more information or visit Rusk Primary at 440 Collins St.
