Marshall County Schools welcomes all new students entering kindergarten in August 2021. If your child is not currently enrolled in a West Virginia Pre-K, beginning on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 you can call and make an appointment for kindergarten screening and registration. Appointments will be arranged Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Children already in the Marshall County Pre-K Program do not have to register for Marshall County Kindergarten.
To enter a kindergarten program, a child must be 5 years of age prior to the first day of July 2021. At the appointment, school personnel will conduct health screenings and a brief readiness test with each child. Registration forms will be completed.
New students for Marshall County Schools need to have their immunizations made current by their family physician or the Marshall County Health Department. Please call the Marshall County Health Department at 304-845-7840 for Vaccination Clinic schedules.
