ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS Green Park follows the requirements of the State of Missouri as employed in the local public school district. While kindergarteners need to be five years old by August 1 to qualify for entrance, Green Park policy allows for the early admission of kindergartners with birthdays after the deadline. All incoming kindergarteners take the Missouri KIDS test or another Green Park approved test prior to admission. Students transferring into Green Park will be asked to provide student records and birth certificate.
NON-DISCRIMINATION Green Park Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Therefore, Green Park does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletic and other school administered programs.
IMMUNIZATIONS The State of Missouri requires that all students must be properly immunized prior to the start of the school year. If a child is not in full compliance with the requirements before the first day of school, Green Park may not admit that student until such time that full compliance is realized. Families must provide proof of immunizations, including month, date and year, from their health care provider.
