Registration for Holmes County students who will enter Kindergarten in fall of 2021 will begin Monday April 26, 2021, and will continue through April 30, 2021. Parents or legal guardians should register the child online at www.hdsb.org and select the school that they would like to attend (Bethlehem, Bonifay K-8, Ponce de Leon or Poplar Springs).
The following information will need to be uploaded into the online enrollment application:
- birth certificate
- certificate of immunization
- copy of physical from a physician on a Florida physical form
- Social Security Card (copy will be kept sealed in the student’s permanent record and is not mandatory, but does help our school system with tracking important information for funding)
- two proofs of residence (driver’s license, power bill, voter’s registration card, etc.)
To be eligible to enter kindergarten this fall, a student must be five years of age on or before September 1, 2021.
School of choice is dependent upon enrollment capacity. If you are outside of your school of choice zone, please complete the online Controlled Open Enrollment application in addition to the online registration form. The Controlled Open Enrollment form is available on our website and will be available through May 14th. All out of zone applications will be reviewed in May and a letter of acceptance or decline will be mailed to the address provided as soon as the review is complete at each school.
It is very important that children be registered so that staffing plans for the 2021-22 school year can be made.
