Banks County School System is working to streamline the kindergarten registration process as much as possible in light of COVID-19 and the need to adjust our typical registration process/procedures. An online registration system will be rolled out in the coming weeks enabling parents/guardians to complete the majority of the registration process online. We will provide an update as soon as this is available. In the coming weeks, we plan to also post dates/times in July for parents to bring in their student(s) for a brief screening and provide the following supporting documents that will be necessary to complete the registration process.
Certified copy of the student's birth certificate
Student's social security card
Parent/guardian photo identification
Georgia Dept of Human Services Immunization Form 3231
Certification of ear, eye and dental examination
Proof of address: property tax statement, current utility bill, landline phone bill or rental agreement
Proof of custody (if applicable)
We apologize for the delay as we are navigating these unprecedented times and are seeking to ensure the safety of our students and families. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are looking forward to meeting the class of 2033!

Parents, we are well aware of the traffic issues and are working to find the best solution. We are unloading and loading as many students as possible and still do it safely. The problem is we never know how many cars will show up on any given day. We can't start loading early, as we have to stick to our instructional schedules. So bear with us, we are doing our best to keep your time in the lines as short as possible.
