Kindergarten Registration for the 2016-2017 school year was held April 19th thru 22nd at Meigs Primary School. Registration is necessary to get new students enrolled in Meigs Local School District. Due to the fact that some children were not able to make the first registration Meigs Primary will be having another day for parents/guardians to sign their child up for Kindergarten. It will be held on Tuesday, May 17th between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm with lunch time from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Please contact the school office at 742-3000 to schedule an appointment for your child. Any child who will be 5 years of age on or before August 1st is eligible to register. Parents are to bring their child with them at the time of registration. The following documents must be presented at time of registration:
1. Birth Certificate
2. Immunization Record
3. Social Security Card
4. Proof of residence
5. Parent identification
Students will not be registered for school until all documents are submitted.

2015-2016 BUSING NOTICE
The Meigs Local Board of Education and Mr. Bookman, Meigs Local Superintendent, have directed me to considerably reduce the number of bus notes issued to students on a daily basis. Our goal is to ensure the safety and provide for the maximum well-being of each and every student. With this in mind the district is implementing a new procedure regarding bus transportation.
SUMMER READING PACKET INFORMATION
Research shows that students who do not read over the summer break lose 2-3 months of reading skills. If they repeatedly do not read on summer break they lose an entire year of reading skills by the time they enter 3rd grade. To help combat that loss we are offering several options to participate in our summer reading program. Each grade level will be sending home a packet of activities for the summer. The packet can be completed by reading books from anywhere. Please click the link above for more information.
COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS INFORMATION
Ohio’s new College Credit Plus can help students earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. Below you will find links to more information reqarding this opportunity.
