The Piqua City School District will begin kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year starting March 1, 2021. If your child will be five years of age on or before August 1, 2021, he/she is eligible to start kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year.
Who can register:

Step 2: Gather Required Documents Needed to Complete Your Child’s Registration
You will need to bring the required documentation with you to your registration appointment. In order to register your child in the Piqua City School District, it is the parent’s/legal guardian’s responsibility to provide the following documents:
CERTIFIED BIRTH CERTIFICATE
The original or a certified copy of your child’s birth certificate. Certified birth certificates can be obtained through the public health department in the city or county where your child was born or by contacting the Office of Vital Statistics with the Ohio Department of Health.
PHOTO IDENTIFICATION OF PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN
Photo identification must be a driver’s license or state-issued photo ID
PROOF OF RESIDENCY
Proof of residency can be a recent utility bill, rental agreement, mortgage/lease agreement with the parent/guardian legal name
If you are living with another person or subleasing without a formal lease agreement, you will need to complete a Residency Affidavit (available at the Board of Education) and have it notarized. This is subject to review for approval by the district.
Piqua City Schools reserves the right to require additional documentation as proof of residency as necessary.
COURT-STAMPED CUSTODY DOCUMENTS (IF APPLICABLE)
In the event of a legal separation or divorce, the parent who has legal custody must provide a complete copy of the court-ordered custody agreement that indicates the parent is the residential custodial parent of the child for school purposes.
CURRENT IMMUNIZATION RECORD AND PHYSICAL EXAMINATION (Please note...you can still register your child even if they do not have their immunizations and physical completed. These items DO need to be completed by the time the 2021-2022 school year begins.)
Your child must be current with all immunization requirements including kindergarten booster shots.
A physical examination can be obtained through your family doctor, The Little Clinic, or Miami County Public Health. Any well-child visit dated September 7, 2020, to the current day is valid as a kindergarten physical.
Both immunization records and your child’s physical must be completed before your child can start kindergarten.
If you have questions about immunization records, your child’s physical or if your child has medical needs, please contact the school’s nurse.
You can fax your child’s immunization or physical records directly to the school.
