The times for registration are the same both days from 8:00 to 10:30 am, 1:00 to 3:00 pm and 5:00 to 7:00 pm. You may come either day and at any of the six available sessions to register your child. You may pre-register your child by going to FowlervilleSchools.org click on the New Student Enrollment link on the main page, complete the online enrollment and when you come to Round Up we will print it for you. Please bring the following items with you to Round Up: The Child who is being enrolled, Original Birth Certificate, Current Immunization Record, Vision Screening (after 3 years of age) and proof of residency (2 pieces of mail and your DL). The Health Department will also be here during Round Up to do vision screenings. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Smith Office at 517-223-6430.

 

Items Needed: We are in need of boys and girls pants in sizes 4-8 (elastic waist, unisex type pants, sweat pants are the best!) for our clothing drawer in the office.  Please send any donations to our office.  Thank you in advance!

 

Medication –If your child requires any prescription or non-prescription medication during the school year, a parent or guardian must bring it to the Smith Office to drop it off and complete the necessary paperwork. School Board Policy states that children are not allowed to transport medication.

FYI- Each school building in the Fowlerville Community School District has a Child Study Team / Response to Intervention process in place, which is a vehicle for staff members to review student performance, concerns, and collaboratively develop interventions. If you have concerns about your child’s development and are interested in more information on special services, contact his/her building Principal.
