General Information

Registration is conducted at the individual schools. Specific information regarding transportation, school lunches, and other matters of concern may be obtained at the individual schools.

Age Requirements. A child must be five years old on or before 30 September to enter kindergarten. Parents of children who are five after 30 September and before 31 December may petition the school division superintendent to enroll their child. A child must be six years old on or before 31 December to enter the first grade. NOTE: A birth certificate is required for each pupil seeking enrollment in a Norfolk public school for the first time.

Physical Examinations. Kindergarten through seventh grade students must furnish a Virginia physical examination report, unless they are transferring from another Virginia school system where they have completed this requirement. Copies of the required Virginia State Physical Examination Form will be sent to you by the School Liaison Officer or by the school. These forms are honored if the physicals are conducted at a military facility. It is highly recommended that physical examinations be completed before arrival in Norfolk, if possible. Your children will not be allowed to enter school until the physical examination is completed.

Inoculations. Proof of the following inoculations must be furnished: rubeola (measles), rubella (German measles), mumps, DPT primary series, polio primary series, and a tuberculosis test within the last year.

School Buses. Free transportation to all public schools is furnished for children from JFSC. No bus ride takes more than 20 minutes. Schedules may be obtained from the individual schools.

Special Education

Parents of a child with special educational needs or adjustment problems are encouraged to contact the Director of Special Education before arrival to obtain any special information. You may also contact the Developmental Disability Liaison Officer, (DSN 564-2102). It is helpful in placement of students to have all previous testing and evaluations available.

Parochial and Private Schools

If you prefer to send your children to a private school, some information is available from the School Liaison Officer, who will send names and addresses on request. This does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the School Liaison Officer, but these schools have met the needs of JFSC children in the past.
