Kindergarten Registration for Swain County Schools

Swain County Schools will be holding registration for students that will be enrolled in Kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year. Registration Day will be held at West Elementary on April 14 and at East Elementary on April 21. Times will be from 8:00 AM- 3:30 PM.
Students must be 5 years old by Aug. 31, 2021 in order to be eligible to enroll. Parents should bring the child’s birth certificate, immunization record, social security card, proof of residency (such as a power bill) and any other information such as custody papers and Tribal Enrollment Card.
Both elementary schools will be requiring that the students are present so that an assessment of basic skills can be completed. Students will NOT be enrolled until the assessment has been completed.
Students will receive a bag of items that parents may use to prepare the child for kindergarten. The items will be paid for from Title 1 Parent Engagement Funds.
If it is not possible for your child to be present on the appropriate registration day, an appointment must be made by Lisa Sutton by calling 488-2119 ext 5525.

Social Distancing and masks will be required during this time at each school

Weather Warning - February 16, 2021

Swain County Schools will issue a WEATHER WARNING when weather conditions are or will be present that have the potential for delays or cancellation of school. WEATHER WARNINGS will be issued in advance so that our community can be prepared IF school is delayed or cancelled. The Warning will also alert our community to the possibility of weather situations during travel as well as for students who wait on buses. Please note that the WARNING does not mean schools will be delayed or cancelled, only that the possibility exists. Check all Maroon Devil media outlets for updates, delays or cancellations.
