Welcome to Ware Elementary Kindergarten Class of 2034!! We wanted to share a couple of things the Office needs you to know to get your little Ware Bear started.

1. All KG students MUST BE 5 on or before August 31, 2021.

2. The following are required Forms:

a. Birth Certificate or Passport (for us to show proof of age to the State of Kansas)

b. Current Physical (Must be dated within 1 year of school start date)

c. Immunizations (if no immunizations have been given due to religious reasons the Nurse will need a form completed from you)

During the summer months, USD 475 has developed a secured email account to allow families to submit protected documents directly to the district. If you have confidential documents that need to be provided for your student (immunization records, birth certificates, sports or school physicals, etc.), you can use this account by following the steps below:

1. Send an email to: studentrecords@usd475.org requesting an encrypted reply

2. Once the encrypted reply is received, click “reply”, scan and upload the documents to be submitted. Do not attach documents to your initial email request – wait for the encrypted reply to ensure your documents are uploaded securely. If you’d rather hand carry documents, you may bring them to the Mary E. Devin Center for Education Support at 123 N. Eisenhower Dr., Junction City, KS 66441 between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. We will copy your records and deliver them to your child’s school.

3. Transfer Students a Transfer Form MUST BE submitted if you do not live in the Ware Elementary boundary. These will be approved/denied within two weeks of school starting. Attendance is very important when you are a Transfer, so make sure you are able to have your student here every day in order to remain at Ware. Call the office for a form.

4. Coming from USD 475 Early Childhood: Log in to your Skyward account and enroll as a NEW STUDENT selecting Ware as the desired school. ECC will send me all student records and IEP’s, you do not need to do anything beyond enrolling. 5. Teacher Assignments: Teachers will not be assigned until we return at the beginning of August. If you log in to your Skyward Account and happen to see a teacher listed, please be aware that this can always change as we set up classrooms.6.When will you hear from us again: Once your enrollment is complete you will not hear anymore until the Office staff returns from summer break. Shortly afterwards you will receive a Welcome Letter with our important dates.
