If your child is starting kindergarten or first grade next year, we need your help! It’s extremely important that you enroll your child between December 1-4 to ensure we have enough teachers for every classroom on the first day of school.
Children who will be five years old on or before September 1 of the current year must enroll in public or private kindergarten unless the parent or legal guardian signs a waiver (Kindergarten Non-Attendance Form). Any child who will be six years old on or before September 1 of the current year must enroll in first grade. Students who are currently enrolled in a GCS 4K or 5K program do not need to register.
Parents should set up a Backpack account, then click on “Enroll A Student” and follow the instructions.
The following documents are required for online or face-to-face registration:
- Photo ID from any state or country
- Two current “proof of residency” documents (all must contain property address). These can be a combination of:
- Current bills – i.e. electric, gas, water, cable
- Current mortgage statement or current signed lease agreement with landlord’s name and phone number
- Child’s Birth Certificate
- Signed Certificate of Immunization, Conditional Certificate of Immunization, or Religious Exemption Certificate (Religious Exemption Certificate provided by Health Department)
The GCS Virtual Program will be available for grades 5K-12 in 2021-2022. An application will be posted on the GCS website in early spring of 2021. Your child must be registered or enrolled in Greenville County Schools to apply for the Virtual Program.
To find out where your child will attend kindergarten or first grade, call INFOLine at 355-3100 or visit Find Your School section of our website.
