Each year, parents/guardians are required to register their child/children for the upcoming school year.
 
Please note this important change for the upcoming school year:
This year parents/guardians must provide two proofs of residency when registering returning students (water or power bill and a current lease, mortgage statement, or property tax receipt in the parent’s/guardian’s name). This includes students attending the school on special permission through “Transfer”/ “Hardship.” In addition to the items listed above, students new to the District must also provide an official birth certificate and immunization/shot record.

Registration for Kennedy Middle School will be held on Tuesday, August 4th from 12:00-6:00 P.M.

Additionally, a "Meet and Greet" will be held for rising 6th graders on Friday, August 14th from 10:00-11:30 A.M.

Arrangements to register on an alternative date may be made by contacting the school 803.641.2470.
 
Immunization Requirement
An additional Tdap will be required for 7th - 9th grade students beginning in the 2015-16 school year. All students entering seventh grade must have a Tdap vaccination on or after the 7th birthday. Your child’s school will need a South Carolina Certificate of Immunization showing that he or she has received the Tdap vaccination.

  •  whether the teacher is certified to teach the subjects and/or grade levels the teacher is teaching,
  • whether the teacher’s certificate is a waiver or substandard certificate
  • the teacher’s academic major, graduate degree, if any, and the teacher’s certification are
If paraprofessionals have been assigned to assist in your child’s classroom, you may also request information regarding their qualifications.
