Principal's Message

February, 2024

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.
Registration – March 7, 2024
To register, go to: 
If you have any questions, please contact the district registration office at 740-238-7099. If you have applied for open enrollment, do not register on Final Forms until you have been approved for open enrollment.  

Kindergarten Roundup – March 6th, 2024   6:00 -7:15 PM  
Topics will include: Getting to Know Heath City Schools, What is Kindergarten, and Bus Safety.   You will meet the Superintendent, Asst. Superintendent, Principal, Director of Special Education, District Nurse, Registration Secretary and the Kindergarten team.  

Clinic Screening - 
After registration in Final Forms is complete, a link from Signup Genius will be sent to your email and you will then be able to schedule your appointment time for the Clinic Health Screening.
Kindergarten Screening – August 15 or 16, 2024
You will receive an email with another link from Signup Genius to sign up for the Academic Kindergarten Screening.   It is required for the parent/guardian to stay with their child during the screening process, which will be approximately 30 minutes.   After your child’s completion of his/her screening, a homeroom teacher will be assigned.
Open House/Meet the Teacher (Kindergarten only) – August 16, 2024  5-6 PM           
Staggered Start – August 19, 20 or 21, 2024               
*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. 

First day with all kindergarten students – August 22, 2024 
We look forward to meeting you at our Kindergarten Roundup!
Your Partner in Education,
Jeff Hempleman, Principal
