Cherokee County Child Nutrition Monthly Newsletter

September 3rd, 2015

Beginning in September, parents and students can find out what is new in cafeterias throughout the district by reading the online newsletter. Information about the program, menu items, staff, and events will be at your fingertips with the click of a mouse! The monthly newsletter will also provide links to sources for fun recipes for kids, family meal planning tips, and nutrition information that is beneficial to students and parents. There will also be links to educational tools for students in future issues. This month features information about the addition of Grab N’ Go Salads to our menu, staff contact information, and menu links.

It is the hope of the Child Nutrition Program that you will take advantage of this new resource and that it will be a source of valuable information. Newsletters will be posted monthly on the 30th of the month and archived on the Child Nutrition Program page under the Newsletter link for your convenience.

2015-16 School Registration

July 15th, 2015

Students who are new to the Cherokee County School System are required to enroll with their parents or legal guardian. Admission to public schools shall be considered on an individual basis based on the application of the
parent/legal guardian of the child to the local board of education at the beginning of each school year, under such rules and regulations as the board may prescribe. To enroll in a Cherokee County School, the following items must be presented to the school principal or his/her designee:

  1. Immunization Records
  2. Social security card or temporary identification number assigned by district office. If you elect not to provide a SSN, a temporary identification number will be generated and utilized instead. Your child’s SSN is being requested for us in conjunction with enrollment in school as provided in Ala. Admin. Code 290-3-1-.02(2)(b)(2). It will be used as a means of identification in the statewide student management system.
  3. Domestic or foreign birth certificate in order to verify age. If a valid birth certificate is not presented, an alternate form of documentation such as religious, hospital or physician’s certificate, adoption record, previously verified school record or other alternative form of documentation may be used to verify age.
  4. Proof of Residence (two utility bills in legal custodial/guardian name)
  5. Previous School Records (report card, disciplinary status, etc.)
