Kindergarten Round Up for students entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2020 is scheduled for January 6 thru January 31, 2020 at Shannon School from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. At this time parents will be asked to complete some informational forms. A health form, dental form, physical form (with lead screening), and an immunization card will be provided. Completed immunizations and a dental exam are required by law for all students entering Kindergarten. Some of the series of vaccines take six (6) months to complete.
