Who Needs to Enroll:

Kentucky requires children between 6 and 16 years old to attend school. Children can enter primary school at age 5 if they turn 5 on or before August 1.

A child may sign up for the preschool program if your child turns 4 before Oct. 1 and is income-eligible. Also eligible for preschool are children age 3 or 4 who have a special need. A child with a disability is one who demonstrates a delay in one or more areas of development.

Registration:

To enroll a child at Second Street School, families should go to the school office, located on the first floor from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm. Once your child is registered, they will be referred to the school counselor for enrollment.
