Student enrollment

Enrollment Process

We're excited to have you join the LCPS family.

How To Enroll

Students must be five years old on or before Aug. 31 of the current school year to start kindergarten.

LCPS has moved to an online enrollment process. The required form is available  online here or by scanning the QR code below. Complete the enrollment form for your child's grade level. Call or visit your school for assistance with the online form. If you plan to visit the school for assistance, we recommend calling ahead.

2. Gather these materials:

  • A certified copy of your child's birth certificate
  • Proof of your Lenoir County address (current water, gas, or electric bill in parent's name that is no more than 30 days old, newly signed lease that is no more than 60 days old, settlement statement or offer-to-purchase agreement)
  • A photo ID of the parent or guardian
  • Your child's immunization record
  • Any custody documents

3. Provide the completed form with supporting documents to your child's base school to enroll. (Note: students must sign up for bus service when enrolling.)

4. State law requires that every child entering public schools in North Carolina for the first time receive a health assessment. The assessment must occur within 12 months prior to entering school. The medical provider, parent or guardian must provide a completed health assessment form to the school on or before the child's first day of attendance. Health assessment forms are also available at Lenoir County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Lenoir County Health Department.

Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can get health assessments and immunizations through the Lenoir County Health Department.

A parent or guardian has 30 calendar days from the first day of attendance to present the required proof of immunization and health assessment. At the end of the 30 day period, any child without a health assessment shall be prohibited from attending school until he or she has obtained the required assessment.

Fee Waiver and Reduction Policy

Under LCPS policy, students are eligible for a fee waiver and reduction in a given school year under certain circumstances. A parent can request fee waiver and reduction by completing this required form and returning it to the student's principal.

Student Assignment & Transfer Requests

Information on enrolling a student who's attended another school district and on requesting a transfer outside a student's established attendance zone can be found on this website.
