Kindergarten!

Hello and Welcome to Thrasher's Kindergarten! 

It is time to register for Kindergarten! Registration will be open online from Monday, May 18 – Friday, May 22. Head over to thrasher.hcde.org, and find the “Enroll Students” icon or click here: Registration Link

To complete pre-registration, you will need a few things on hand: 2 Proofs of Residency, a TN School Immunization Certificate, the certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, and a photo ID of the parent or legal custodian of the child.

After you complete pre-registration, be sure to sign up for a Kindergarten screener. You can do that here.

To summarize, there are two things you can do now:

  1. Register for Kindergarten at thrasher.hcde.org.
  2. Sign up for a Kindergarten screener here

Required Documents to Enroll

  • Two (2) Proofs of Residency
    • Proof of residency is a current (within the last 30-60 days) utility bill - electric, gas, water - with the parent's name and address printed on it.
    • If parents have not been living at the residence long enough to have a utility bill, a contract or lease on a house or apartment will be accepted.
    • Agency, government or court documentation will also be accepted.
  • Tennessee School Immunization Certificate
    • If a student is entering Hamilton County Schools for the first time, the physical exam must have been completed in the last 12 months.
    • Immunizations must be up to date.
  • Certified Copy of Child's Birth Certificate
  • Photo ID

Answers to FAQs about Enrolling at Thrasher

  • Registration is not full registration. Families that take advantage of registration now will find the registration process in August to be smooth and easy.
  • Students will need to be living in the Thrasher zone at the time of registration. If you are moving to the Thrasher zone in the near future, then you will pre-register at your zone school.
  • All incoming Kindergartners need to register for school – even if you have questions about multiage.
  • We will set a date for the multiage meeting soon. It might be a virtual meeting this year.
