Children who turn 5 after September 1, 2022, are encouraged to wait a year before enrolling in school. While you may still register now, we will have a screener on sight in August for students that turn 5 between September 1st and December 1st of 2022. We will communicate the dates and times that the screener will be conducted after we received further social distancing guidance from the State of Michigan.

If your child’s immunizations are incomplete, please make an appointment with the St. Joseph Community Health Agency or your physician. Please bring with you, when you register, a copy of the updated record or the date, time and location of the appointment you have scheduled to complete the immunizations.

In August, you will receive a placement letter providing you information as to your child’s teacher and school. If you have questions or concerns that have not been addressed, please contact the school office to speak with a secretary or the principal.
