    • Your child will NOT be allowed to enroll without ALL of the above documents.

If you are missing any of the above documents, please begin working to obtain those. You may apply for a new birth certificate at the Hamblen County Health Department (if born in another state they can assist with more information). You may apply for a new social security card at the Social Security office in Morristown.

Please be making appointments for shots and physicals now as the doctors become fully booked closer to the beginning of the year. When you have your appointment simply ask for the Kindergarten physical and shot record and they will provide one to you. It must be signed by the doctor.

If you are unsure what school your child should attend, please contact the Hamblen County Central Office, and they can provide you with that information.


On July 20th, you will be provided with more information about Jumpstart Kindergarten and the beginning of the school year.
