Required for Registration: 
  1. Up-to-Date Required Immunizations 
  2. Health Assessment Form 
  3. A certified copy of the student's birth certificate.
  4. Proof of residence of parent(s) (or court-appointed guardian) include driver's licenses with current address, voter registration card, or NC DMV ID. For questions relating to guardianship, please speak with the school principal.
  5. In addition to a driver's license, we will also accept a utility bill, a copy of rental agreement or affidavit for proof of residency.
  6. If arriving from another school system, a copy of the child's latest report card (elementary and middle school) or transcript(high school) and the previous year's achievement test results are helpful. If bringing the child's records is a problem, the new school will contact the child's previous school and request the records.

Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can obtain health assessments and immunizations through the Dare County Department of Public Health (475-5003).
