Dillard Academy Charter School will hold kindergarten registration on April 16 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

The free public school of choice, which serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, is located at 504 W. Elm St.

A child must turn 5 years old on or before Aug. 31 to register for the upcoming school year. Parents/legal guardians must present an official birth certificate and immunization records, as well as two sources of residence, which can include utility bills, a tax bill, deed or trust or rent receipt.

North Carolina requires that each kindergarten child receive a health assessment and appropriate shots. Forms are available at the Wayne County Health Department and most pediatricians’ offices. Forms must be returned to the school by the first day of the 2019-20 school year.

Those unable to register on April 16 are invited to contact the school at 919-581-0128. For more information about Dillard Academy, visit the website, www.dillardacademy.org.
