Kindergarten Round Up

We will be offering a full-day Begindergarten in the 2022-23 school year in addition to our regular full-day Kindergarten program.  Placement in the Begindergarten program will be determined by date of birth, assessment results and student need.  Begindergarten students must also be 5 by 9/1/22 or not later than 12/1/22 with an approved waiver to be eligible to enroll. Thank you!

Immunizations, Vision & Hearing Screenings:
Lapeer County Health Department Vision & Hearing Technicians will be on-site at Orchard Primary School during your child's Kindergarten Screening appointment to screen your child.

In order for children to enter school in the fall, they must have received their required immunizations and have had a vision screening within 6 months prior to the start of school.  A hearing screening is strongly recommended.  If you have not yet begun this process, we urge you to do so now as it takes a period of time to complete.

Your county Health Department provides immunizations, vision and hearing screenings on specific days free of charge.  For schedule information please call your county's Health Department. 

The Lapeer County Health Dept., Child Services:  810-667-0448.

Schools of Choice Families:
The School of Choice Window for 2022-2023 will open in May. Kindergarten and Begindergarten parents may fill out the SOC form for fall 2022 when registering beginning in March.  Keep in mind that filling out this form early will NOT guarantee your child a spot.  All resident children will get first priority.  Once the district has an idea of total registration numbers a decision will be made on School of Choice enrollment for each grade.  This decision will be made in May before the official window opens.
