2020-2021 Kindergarten Round Up
Posted on 01/07/2020
The registration for children entering kindergarten next fall will be held on February 4, 5, and 6 at the offices of Lake Prairie, Oak Hill, and Three Creeks elementary schools of the Tri-Creek School Corporation from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend Kindergarten Roundup, please call the school your child will attend in order to have a packet mailed to you. Failure to participate in Kindergarten Roundup may cause children to be transferred to another school due to classes being filled.

Parents seeking to send their kindergarten students to Tri-Creek School Corporation for the 2020-2021 school year under open enrollment should attend Kindergarten Roundup and make application to the district at that time. Open enrollment applications will be available during Kindergarten Roundup.

Tri-Creek School Corporation provides full-day kindergarten for all children at Three Creeks Elementary School, Oak Hill Elementary School, and Lake Prairie Elementary School. Tri-Creek does not provide a half-day kindergarten program. If you are not sure what school your child would attend please view our interactive map showing approximate school boundaries.

A child must be five years old on or before August 1, 2020, to be eligible for kindergarten. A legal birth certificate or hospital birth record should be presented during this registration. Birth certificate verification, complete immunization records that are verified with the physician’s signature and date, and proof of physical examination will be necessary before a child may start school. Indiana state law requires that children newly enrolled in kindergarten must be current on immunizations. Please click here for a listing of state-required immunizations.

Parents and legal guardians of students new to the district will need to provide a valid Indiana driver’s license and either mortgage papers, a payment book, or a lease agreement. They must also provide two (2) of the following items: a NIPSCO bill, water bill, pay stubs, insurance bill, telephone bill, or bank statement. All the above items must include parents’ or legal guardians’ name(s) and their current Tri-Creek address. These materials should be brought to the building when registering. If there are any questions with the paperwork, the district will follow up as needed.

After completing kindergarten registration in February, parents will need to complete district-wide registration online.

Tri-Creek School Corporation would appreciate parental cooperation in notifying friends and neighbors of registration dates and times.
