Marengo County Kindergarten and First Grade Pre-Registration Clinic set for March 5

The Marengo County School System will conduct the Kindergarten and First Grade Pre Registration Clinic on Friday, March 5, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and from 12:00 noon until 2:30 p.m. 

A child who will be five (5) years old before September 2 may pre-register for kindergarten

Children not already attending kindergarten and who will be six (6) before September 21 are urged to pre-register for first grade on Friday, March 5 also. 

A Certificate of Immunization should be provided to school officials for each child enrolling. The Alabama Committee of Public Health states that children between the ages of four (4) and six (6) receive a second dose of measles vaccine. Proof of the second dose will be required for each new kindergarten/first grade student at the beginning of the school year. The Marengo County Health Department in Linden is the responsible agency for administering this vaccine. 

A parent or guardian must accompany the child and should bring a certified birth certificate, social security card, and blue immunization form. 

The schools conducting the pre-registration clinic are: A. L. Johnson High School in Thomaston; Marengo High School in Dixons Mills; and Sweet Water High School in Sweet Water. 

Children attending Head Start that will be enrolling in Kindergarten must also pre register. A parent or guardian must accompany the child and must bring a certified birth certificate, social security card, and blue immunization form.
