Enrollment Criteria for South Lyon Community Schools
To enroll a new student in the South Lyon Community Schools, parents/legal guardians need to bring in the following documentation 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 – 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.
If special education services are required, the parent/legal guardian must contact the Special Services Department, 248-573-8220, for temporary placement. This contact must be completed BEFORE enrolling at the school.
