All students are required to have on file in the school office an up-to-date KY Immunization Certificate. If enrolling from out-of-state, the out-of-state certificate can be taken to the Hardin County Health Department (580 Westport Rd, 270-765-6196) for transcription onto a KY certificate form. This can also be completed by your local Kentucky physician.
As proof of age and legal name, please submit to the school of enrollment your child's state certified birth certificate. The school will make a copy to keep on file. Other documents as proof of age and legal name are also acceptable (such as a passport, legal documents, etc.).
