Updated Kindergarten Screening Information

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Due to the current conditions related to the COVID-19 virus we have had to make changes to our Kindergarten Screening dates.  The dates have been moved to August.  Just a reminder that Kindergarten screening is held at the Primary School. Please review the information and procedures below as it outlines the changes that have been made and the procedures that need to be followed.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  


Kindergarten Appointment Days

The Kindergarten Appointment Days have been changed.  If you have already signed up for an appointment your appointment time will not change.  

For those scheduled on Monday, June 1st, your new appointment day will be Thursday, August 20th.

For those scheduled on Tuesday, June 2nd, your new appointment day will be Friday, August 21st.

For those scheduled on Wednesday, June 3rd, your new appointment day will be Monday, August 24th.

Once again, your appointment time remains the same.  


What you need to do now

In order for your child to be enrolled as a Bloom-Carroll student you have to pre-register your child.  IMPORTANT:  (*ONLY BCLSD RESIDENTS MAY ENROLL.  YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE ENROLLED WITHOUT PROOF OF RESIDENCY)


This is done by:

  • Completing Final Forms which is located on the district web page under Parent Resources

  • Scan the following documents and email them to [email protected]

  • Birth Certificate/Passport

  • Proof of Residency (Examples: Mortgage Documents, Rental/Lease Agreement which needs to include Landlord’s name and phone number,   Auto Registration, Banking Statement, Current Tax Documents, Utility Bill) 

  •  Immunization Records

  •  Parent Photo ID

  • Custody Papers (if applicable)

  •  Legal Documents Required if foster placed

  • Special Educations Records (if applicable)

  • IF you do not have access to scan the above documents the Primary School will be open on the following days to assist you with this required documentation.

       June 1st    9 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

       June 2nd   1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. 

       June 3rd   2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

How will this work in August

If all documents have been received and Final Forms completed you will move forward with your assigned appointment day and time.   

Only one parent may bring their child to the screening. No other adult or siblings will be allowed in the building.

There will be intentional signage as to where you will enter the building and exit the building.  

Parent will remain in the hallway while your child is being screened.

The teacher will do a telephone conference later in the day to go over the results of the screening.

How will I know who my child’s teacher will be?

Classroom rosters will be built as we go through the screening process. 

At the end of your child’s screening day or the next day at the latest you will receive a phone call letting you know what teacher your child will have for the school year.  

When will my child start kindergarten?

We will have half of the students attend on Thursday, August 27th.

The other half will attend on Friday, August 28th.

Your assigned day will be given to you when we make the phone call letting you know who your child’s teacher will be for the school year.

ALL students will be in attendance on Monday, August 31st

*Please be aware that parents will not be able to go to the classrooms on your assigned day or on Monday, August 31st.  All good-byes and pictures will need to be done prior to your child arriving at school.  


Ensure that your transportation form has been submitted.  This form is located within Final Forms.

Your choices for transportation is either the bus or the parent pick-up and drop-off line which is behind the Primary building.  

If you will be dropping off and picking up your child all year please submit a note to the Primary School Office at the beginning of the school year.  You will be given a name tag to place in your car window to help speed up the process for dismissal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected].
