J. Paul Truluck Intermediate will hold registration for the 2014-2015 school year for students in on Wednesday, July 30, from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and Thursday, July 31, from 9 a.m.-7 p.m.

Students will register in the Lake City High School gym.  

Parents who completed the entire registration process including payment of fees during early registration in June do not need to attend.

When registering their children, parents are required to provide photo identification, such as a driver’s license, and a current electricity bill as proof of residency. If the utility bill is not in the parent’s name, the parent must provide a notarized document that verifies residency. 

Students are required to provide proof of immunization.

All students attending Florence County School District Three for the first time are required by state law to provide a long form birth certificate. Parents can get a copy of the long form birth certificate from the Department of Health and Environmental Control at 1705 West Evans Street in Florence.

All necessary forms for student registration, including the DHEC vital records form for ordering a long form birth certificate, are listed below. 

Schools will charge a supplies fee for all students registering for school. The supplies fee is $25 for middle school students. Other fees for middle schools include $15 for a PE uniform and $25 for a yearbook (optional).
