Lock Down Drill on Tuesday

Deputy Scott has been working diligently with our staff and students to prepare for our upcoming Lock Down Drill. She has been to every classroom and special area in our school to discuss safety and the protocols for practice. I will announce and explain the drill Tuesday morning. After a brief practice (approximately 10 minutes), students and staff will be alerted that the drill has ended, and the normal day's activities will resume.

We will have assistance from Deputy Scott, School Resource Officers from other schools, and the local EMS. Jack Anderson is incredibly fortunate to have our very own SRO. Deputy Scott is amazing! She goes to great lengths to ensure that our campus is safe every day.

Calling All 2018-2019 Kindergarteners

We are excited to welcome a new crop of K students! Kindergarten registration will take place on April 20th from 9:00-12:00.

Eligible children are those who are five years old on or before August 15, 2018. Before starting school, the following information must be provided to school officials:

  • A photo ID is requested to identify the parent/guardian enrolling the child.

  • A state-certified copy of the child’s birth certificate. (Forms to obtain certified copies of birth certificates can be obtained from the Sumner County Health Department located at 1005 Union School Road Gallatin, TN 37066)

  • Proof of required immunization and current physical. These items can be provided by the Health Department OR the child’s doctor. State law requires a series of three Hepatitis B shots and other immunizations, some of which must be spaced out over a specific period of time. Please check with your child’s healthcare provider to make sure all shots can be obtained before the start of school.

  • Two (2) documents establishing proof of residence are required: 1.) Legal document/lease showing proof of residency for specific address (Notary public or typed/hand-written letters from land owner are not accepted). 2.)

**Your child will be given a testing date on the day of registration.
