Enrollment Criteria for South Lyon Community Schools
To enroll a new student in the South Lyon Community Schools, parents/legal guardians should bring the following documentation, along with the completed enrollment forms in the links below, to the enrollment person at the appropriate school building:
Original, certified Birth Certificate – must have raised seal. A student may be enrolled with other proof of birth (hospital birth certificate, life insurance policy, court or governmental records, baptismal certificate) and a notarized affidavit explaining why they cannot produce the original birth certificate, but must have the original, certified birth certificate to the district within 30 days. (Michigan Missing Children’s Act, MCL380.1135.)
Proof of Residency – must present 2 proofs of residency for the parent/legal guardians. Examples: driver’s license, mortgage documents, rental/lease agreement, utility bills, credit card statement, bank statement, voter registration card, cable bill.
Immunization records – Students new to South Lyon Community Schools, as well as those entering Junior kindergarten/Kindergarten or seventh grade, must show proof of immunization in compliance with Michigan law and Department of Health and Human Services requirements in order to be admitted. Parents wishing to obtain a nonmedical waiver will need to do so through the Oakland County Health Department. Due to an immunization rule change from the Michigan Department of Community Health, waivers exempting children from receiving immunizations can no longer be obtained from a school or childcare. Non-Medical waivers based on religious or philosophical beliefs must first be certified at the Oakland County Health Division. Parents/guardians of children who are unable to receive vaccinations due to medical reasons should consult their healthcare provider for a medical waiver form. For more information, go to www.oakgov.com/health or contact Nurse On Call (NOC) at 1-800-848-5533. You will need to provide up-to-date immunization records required by law for all students. Kindergarten enrollees must also show proof of vision screening.
In addition, secondary students should bring an unofficial transcript from their previous school to assist in scheduling. An appointment will be made with a counselor to set up the student’s schedule.
