All students must have on file an up-to-date immunization certificate. All transfer students must present a completed medical examination form and a Kentucky immunization certificate. Parents or guardians of transfer students should sign a release form in order for the school district to obtain records from the school previously attended.
 
Those students entering the sixth grade must have a second varicella, TdaP, meningitis shot, as well as a recent physical examination. Students enrolled or enrolling in the Christian County School System must comply with all Kentucky health laws, rules and regulations except as provided in KRS 214:036.

A student must be 5 years of age by Oct. 1 of the 2013-14 school year before entering Kindergarten.
 
Kentucky law KRS 156.160(l) requires proof of a dental screening or examination by a dentist, dental hygienist, physician, registered nurse, advanced registered nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. This evidence must be presented to the school no later than Jan. 1 of the first year that a 5- or 6-year-old child is enrolled in public school.
 
Parents should call immediately to schedule an appointment with their family physician or the Christian County Health Department, as state regulations and local policy mandate strict enforcement of these requirements.

According to the Christian County Board of Education, the students must attend school in the zone which their parents/guardians live. Residence shall be where the child is actually residing. If necessary, proof of a pupil’s legal residence shall be verifiable through 2 utility statements, home visits by the Pupil Personnel Office, statements of neighbors and/or landlords, etc. Statements of verification may be requested from the Superintendent’s office in any given case.
