Children who will be five years old on or before August 1, 2023, are eligible to register for kindergarten in the Franklin Local School District. Parents are to bring their child’s birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency. If the child resides with someone other than a parent, custody papers must be brought to registration. Ohio law requires that all pupils admitted for initial entry to school present written evidence that they have received, or are in the process of receiving, the required immunizations.
All children entering kindergarten will be required to provide evidence of having received a (3) dose series of Hepatitis B vaccine. Children will also be required to have received (4) or more doses of DTaP or DT, or any combination, (3) or more doses of the POLIO vaccine IPV, (2) doses of MMR, and two (2) doses of Varicella. If you have any questions or need to update your child’s immunizations, please see his/her physician or visit the Zanesville/Muskingum County Health Department.
We understand that high performing schools pay attention to the whole child to improve the quality of life for our students and community members.
