Early admission to school deadline approaches
Sussex - Parents who want their children considered for early admission into a Hamilton School District 5-year-old kindergarten or first-grade class next fall should apply in writing by March 1 to their elementary school principal. Application forms are available at elementary school offices.
Children who turn 5 on or before Sept. 1, meet normal entrance age requirements for the 2012-13, 5-year-old kindergarten class; those who turn 6 on or before Sept. 1, are eligible to enter first grade.
Parents that apply will meet with the principal. During that time, a brief interview will take place and the application will be completed. The child should demonstrate superior intellectual development, superior language skills and advanced physical, social and emotional maturity. Parents will be contacted no later than mid-March about the next step in the process.
For more information about early admission, contact an elementary school principal or Special Services Supervisor Mardi Freeman at (262) 246-1973 ext. 1184.
