Parents/guardians must provide the following to register:
Birth certificate or proof of parentage;
Valid ID of parent/guardian registering the child;
Two proofs of residence (such as power, water, gas, cable, or landline telephone bills, lease, or mortgage);
Up-to-date immunization/shot record; and

■ Pre-Kindergarten Registration
Gaston County Schools also is accepting applications for pre-kindergarten. Parents may register online (www.gaston.k12.nc.us/prekindergarten) or by visiting the district’s Student Assignment Office at the former Forest Heights Elementary School, #1 Learning Place, Gastonia. Applications will be accepted until May 30.
To register for pre-kindergarten, a child must be four years old on or before August 31, 2019. Parents must provide the same information listed above for kindergarten registration and also provide proof of income for the parent/guardian living in the home with the child (a recent check stub is preferred).
Pre-kindergarten is offered at various school and community locations across Gaston County. Parents are reminded that registering a child for pre-kindergarten does not guarantee that the child will be placed in the program. The district has limited pre-kindergarten space at each location.
