To enter kindergarten in any school year, a child must be five years old on or before September 1 of that year.  Parent orientation meetings for kindergarten registration are normally held the preceding March or April. If you are unable to register your child at that time, you may register anytime at the school office.

To register a child at Murdock Elementary, please present:
  • proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate or other legal proof)
  • written immunization record from a physician, nurse or health department
Prior to school entry, children must be immunized for the following:
  • Polio
  • Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis
  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Varicella
A waiver of the immunization requirement may be obtained for religious or health reasons.
