Edmonson County Schools have always hosted an in-person kindergarten registration for incoming students each year; however, schools are adjusting that process due to the current Covid-19 situation.
Carol Stice, Instructional Supervisor for Edmonson County schools said this process is extremely important and she asked the Edmonson Voice to help the local school system spread the word.
"A huge part of our elementary schools' planning for the next school year is dependent upon the number of incoming kindergarten students we have," she said. "We want to encourage any parent with a child that will be five by August 1, 2020, to register their child ASAP with our online registration."
The online signup has been launched by the district and is ready to go for the next school year. Stice said that incoming kindergarten parents will need to visit mrtg.edmonson.k12.ky.us/OLR.html and follow the prompts on the screen to get their child registered. She also added that in the event of any questions or issues, folks can simply call the school (Kyrock:270-286-4013 or South Edmonson 270-597-2379) for more.
"We are here to help and want this process to be as seamless as possible," she said. "We are so sad that we couldn't have our Kindergarten Express kickoff like we've done in the past, but we desperately need this information as soon as possible. We encourage everyone in the community to share this information with any parent who may need it."
