NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

Welcome to the Home of the Eagles!

All student registrations are by appointment only. Please call 703.583.1405 to schedule an appointment for your student. All students must be accompanied by the custodial parent or legal guardian, as evidenced by court papers indicating legal custody. Foster parents must have placement paperwork from the courts and also from the foster agency.

You will need the following items at registration:

1.A completed immunization record signed by a physician/health department official or a school immunization record. Required immunizations include:
Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis (DTaP, DTP, or Tdap)- A minimum of 3 doses. A child must have at least one dose of DTaP or DTP vaccine on or after the fourth birthday. If the child has received six doses of DTaP or DTP before the fourth birthday, additional doses are contraindicated. DT (Diphtheria, Tetanus) vaccine is required for children who are medically exempt from the pertussis-containing vaccine(DTaP or DTP). Adult Td is required for children 7 years of age and older who do not meet the minimum requirements for tetanus and diphtheria.
Effective July 1, 2006, a booster dose of Tdap vaccine is required for all children entering the 6th grade, if at least five years have passed since the last dose of tetanus-containing vaccine. 
 
Haemophilus Influenzae Type b (Hib) Vaccine - This vaccine is required ONLY for children up to 60 months of age. A primary series consists of either 2 or 3 doses (depending on the manufacturer)followed by a booster dose at age 12-15 months. However, the child’s current age and not the number of prior doses received govern the number of doses required. Unvaccinated children between the ages of 15 and 60 months are only required to have one dose of vaccine.
Hepatitis B Vaccine - A complete series of 3 doses of the hepatitis B vaccine is required for all children. However, the FDA has approved a 2-dose schedule ONLY for adolescents 11-15 years of age AND ONLY when the Merck Brand (RECOMBIVAX HB) Adult Formulation Hepatitis B Vaccine is used. The 2 RECOMBIVAX HB Adult doses must be separated by a minimum of 4 months. If the 3-dose hepatitis B vaccine schedule is used, there should be at least 1 month spacing between the 1st and 2nd doses and 4 months spacing between the 1st and 3rd doses.
Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) Vaccine - A minimum of 2 measles, 1 mumps, and 1 rubella. (Most children receive 2 doses of each because the vaccine usually administered is the combination vaccine MMR). The first dose must be administered at age 12 months (365 days) or older. If the first dose is administered before 12 months of age, the dose does not count and must be repeated. The second dose of the measles vaccine does not have to be administered until age 4-6 years(usually at the entry to kindergarten) but can be administered at any time after the minimum interval between dose 1 and dose 2. The minimum interval is 4 weeks (28 days).
Pneumococcal (PCV) Vaccine: Two to four doses, dependent on age at first dose, of pneumococcal 7-valentconjugate vaccine for children less than two years of age.
Polio Vaccine - A minimum of 3 doses of all IPV or all OPV polio vaccine. If a child has had only three doses of the polio vaccine, one dose must have been administered on or after the fourth birthday. However, a child who has received four doses of any combination of IPV or OPV polio vaccine before the fourth birthday is adequately immunized and does not need a dose after the fourth birthday.
Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine - All susceptible children born on and after January 1, 1997, shall be required to have a dose of chickenpox vaccine no earlier than the age of 12 months (365 days).
 
NOTE: The 4-day grace period for administration of vaccines does not apply to the MMR vaccine or Varicella vaccine.
 
2.The original birth certificate or a certified true copy of the birth certificate. (If you need to request an official birth certificate, try this website: www.vitalrec.com.)
3. Report card and transcript from the previous school, complete with the school's name and address.
4. SOL test results from Virginia schools.
5.Proof of address (One of the following documents must be presented in order to prove residency: Deed/Contract or Rental/Lease Agreement or Notarized Affidavit of Residency, and additionally, two of the following must also be presented: Valid driver's license, car registration, utility bill, personal property tax bill, county or town sticker receipt, voter registration.)
 
Without items 1, 2, 3 and 5, the registration cannot take place and you will need to make another appointment.

Students who are receiving Special Education Services will need to bring a copy of their current IEP.

Students who are enrolled in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program will need to schedule an appointment for placement testing before completing registration by calling the Central Registration Center at 703.491.8432

It is not necessary for high school age students to have a physical for school entrance; however, if the student plans to participate in athletics, a Virginia High School League physical is necessary for participation.

We look forward to meeting you and your family and having you as a member of the Freedom school community.
