If you are new to our district and need to register your child for school, please stop in and see us. We’ll be happy to help you complete the process. Documents we require are:

- Two Proofs of Residency (must be in the guardian's name)
- Name of Previous School, County, and State (must have the phone number and address)

Your child must accompany you when making the registration. If you have any additional questions regarding registration, give us a call in our school office. We look forward to getting to know you and your child.
The following is a list of required immunizations by the state of Mississippi. For additional information, you may visit the Mississippi State Department of Health’s website.
- Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (DTaP)
- Polio (IPV)
- Hepatitis B
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
We require all children entering a Mississippi school (any grade) for the first time to have the above listed immunizations. This includes Pre-K 4 year olds – 12th grade.
Children entering a Mississippi school after their 7th birthday, who do not meet the above DTaP requirements, will need at least 3 total doses of diphtheria/tetanus containing vaccine (Td). Children 10 years and older should be given Tdap as one of the three diphtheria/tetanus containing vaccines (preferably as the first of the 3 doses). Please refer to the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices (ACIP) catch up schedule. If a child receives the 4th dose on or after his/her 4th birthday, the child is not required to receive a 5th dose. Children should be given the final dose in the series at 4 years of age, regardless of the number of previous doses. Parents may only waive the MMR vaccine if a physician can provide a diagnosis of previous infection with measles, mumps, and rubella disease or serologic confirmation of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella.
Parents may also waive the Varicella vaccine if a physician can provide a diagnosis of a past infection, including a past history of chickenpox or serologic confirmation of immunity to chickenpox.
