*These are the full requirements for an August 2018 starting Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten student. Some doctors prefer not to give the final Polio, DPT & MMR until right before school starts. At the time of registration, we will accept an appointment card from the doctor's office stating the child will be given these immunizations before school starts. Immunization records must be up to date before the student may start school in August. 

If you have any questions you may call the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District Office at 916-770-8855.
