Covenant Kids Run

Highland Park Elementary Run Club began in February working towards its goal of walking 26.2 miles, the same as a marathon!  We have had lots of fun, when the weather allowed us to get out and walk.  We are really proud of the kids who were able to walk their last mile into Neyland Stadium on Saturday, March 29th in Knoxville.  Congratulations to them and to all who participated in the Run Club.  Keep up the good work and stay healthy!!

Pre K and Kindergarten Round Up

The roundup registration date for Prek and K in Loudon County will be Friday, May 16 at each elementary school. It begins at 8:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. For PreK, the child must be four years of age by August 15, 2014. For Kindergarten, the child must be five years of age by August 15, 2014.

The student's legal guardian/ parent must complete the forms for registration at the school they wish to attend. Here is a list of what parents will need to bring to the registration.

For the PreK registration, parents will need to provide proof of income. Income verification documents include pay stubs, W-2 forms, Income Tax 2013, unemployment compensation, workman compensation documentation, pension stubs, retirement documentation, social security, veteran's benefits letter, child support, alimony documentation, SSI documentation, TANF documentation, foster care reimbursement, Public Assistance payment, TN Care verification.

The Voluntary PreK program is specifically funded for children in economically disadvantaged situations. However, we encourage everyone to apply even if they may not qualify as economically disadvantaged because occasionally there are student openings after the economically disadvantaged children are placed in the classes. We want to serve as many children in Loudon County as possible.

For PreK and K registration, parents will need to bring:
state certified birth certificate
(a common problem is that parents have the hospital birth certificate but not the state issued one), proof of residence in Loudon County (utility bill, renter's agreement or property tax notice with a matching guardian' s driver's license), proof of Social Security number and if the child is already 4 for PreK or 5 for K they will need to bring their immunization record and medical examination/physical papers. The medical exam/ physical papers can be obtained at their pediatrician's office. If the child was born in the state of TN, the birth certificate can be obtained from the Health Dept. or from the state website.There is usually some difficulty obtaining doctor appointment and birth certificates at the last minute, so we encourage parents to plan ahead for these needs.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the PreK instructional supervisor, Melanie Amburn, at 458-5411 ext 1005 or amburnm@loudoncounty.org.

Mr. Clinton, Officer Jake Keener, and Highland Park Elementary students presented how to retire Old Glory to the Loudon County School Board on Thursday, November 14th.
