2020-2021 Kindergarten Information


Dear Parent/Guardian

Welcome to Garfield Elementary School!  We are very excited to begin working with your child and hope the information in this letter will answer some questions you may have about the kindergarten registration process.

Kindergarten Roundup - April 16, 2020 from 6 -7:15 PM 

Topics will include: bus safety, a school tour, a classroom visit and getting to know Heath City Schools.  You will meet the Superintendent, Asst. Superintendent, Principal, Director of Special Education, District Nurse, and Registration Secretary.  During Kindergarten Roundup, you will have a chance to schedule an appointment for registration.

Registration – April 9, 13, 27, 2020 8:40 AM – 2:40 PM

Schedule your appointment date & time by contacting our district registrar at 740-238-7099.  A list of required documents will be provided at Roundup and is also available on the district website at

Kindergarten Screening - August 20 and 21       

Screening appointments will be scheduled during your registration appointment time.  It is required for the parent/guardian to stay with their child during the screening process, which will be approximately 60 minutes.   After your child’s completion of his/her screening, a homeroom teacher will be assigned.

Open House/Meet the Teacher – August 21  5-6 PM           

Staggered Start – August 24, 25 and 26   

Your child will attend school only ONE of these three days.  Beginning school can be overwhelming for a kindergarten student.  To help make this transition as smooth as possible, we will be using a staggered start for our kindergarten students only.  With fewer students attending each day, your child’s teacher will be able to provide more personalized attention, clearly explain routines and complete assessments for a positive first day experience.  

 We look forward to meeting you at our Kindergarten Roundup!

 Your Partner in Education, 

Jeff Hempleman, Principal
