SALISBURY, Md. – School registration is available throughout the summer for all new students, according to the Wicomico County Board of Education.

Those students entering a different school or those who are new to the area must register for the upcoming school year, officials say. School offices are open weekdays throughout the summer from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. to apply.

Guardians must have the child’s birth certificate, immunization record, social security card and two proofs of residency, according to the WCBOE. Registration documents are available at http://www.wcboe.org/department/StudentAndFamilyServices/EnrollmentServices.

Children must be 5-years-old by Sept. 1 to register for kindergarten and 4-years-old by the same date to register for Prekindergarten, officials say. Kindergarten is mandatory for all children unless parents complete a waiver form.

Prekindergarten programs in Wicomico County are half-day except for children in the Judy Partnership Program and those in West Salisbury Elementary School and Charles H. Chipman Elementary School, according to the WCBOE.

Low-income children, those with health problems and those with prior experience in Head Start will receive priority for Prekindergarten admission, officials say. All others will be placed on a waiting list.

Enrollment staff will answer questions at the NAACP Back to School Rally Aug. 7 from 12:30-3 p.m. at Salisbury Middle School, according to officials. Parents can also contact enroll@wcboe.org, (410) 677-4479 or (410) 677-4400 for more information.

    Devastating Fire Destroyed the Old Wicomico Youth & Civic Center 40 Years Ago Tuesday

    40 years ago Tuesday the old Wicomico Youth and Civic Center was destroyed by one of the county’s most devastating fires.

    On June 27, 1977, a floor buffer sparked a highly flammable sealant being applied and, in an instant, the community’s cherished center shot up in flames, dark smoke billowing that could be seen as far south as Princess Anne and as far north as Laurel, Del.
