New Student Registration

Enrollment. School System rules and procedures prohibit the enrollment of any child in the Sullivan County Schools unless the student is living with a parent/legal guardian who resides in the area served by the Sullivan County School System. Students are required to attend the school in the school zone in which they reside, except in certain limited circumstances in accordance with Procedure #3010.01. Failure of parents to notify the school’s administration immediately when they move could result in your child not being allowed to attend an out-of-zone school.

1. Proof of residence: The parent/guardian of every student will be required to provide proof of residency, such as, lease, real estate tax receipt, mortgage information, utility receipts, or the like. Residence may also be checked randomly from time to time, and students improperly attending out of zone will be required to return to their proper school.

2. Proof of Custody
a. Custody Issues: Only the residence of the parent with legal custody may be used for registration and attendance purposes. (T.C.A. 49-6-3103) In cases where parents have joint custody, only the address of the parent named as
the primary custodian or designated as having primary responsibility to determine educational issues may be used for registration and attendance purposes.
b. Power of Attorney for Child care (T.C.A. 34-6-302): Parents of a minor child may delegate to any adult person in this state temporary care-giving authority when hardship prevents the parent (s) from caring for the child.

Hardships are identified by law, as follows:

  1. The serious illness or incarceration of a parent or guardian;

  2. The physical or mental condition of the parent or legal guardian is such that care and

    supervision cannot be provided:

iii. The loss or un-inhabitability of the child’s home as the result of a natural disaster.

When one of the above hardships is applicable, the custodial parent (s) and the care giver must make an appointment to meet with the principal of the school in the school zone of the care giver and present the properly completed power of attorney, in order to make arrangement for school attendance. Circumstances not listed above and identified by law as allowable hardships, should be referred to the appropriate court for change of custody.

Got Grit?

Indian Springs Elementary teachers, staff, and principal encourage students and each other to persevere, work hard, and have grit. Our theme this year is "Got Grit? ISE Does!" Fourth graders discussed what it looks like to have grit and created t-shirts that will inspire and remind them to do their best always. It's going to be a great year for the Redskins!

2nd Grade Winner!

Second grade at Indian Springs Elementary was asked by East Lawn Cemetery to help with their blood drive that occurred on Friday, May 8th. The students were asked to come up with a slogan and/or logo to be placed on the T-shirts that were given to the ones who donated blood. They worked either in groups or completed this independently. After all the ideas were drawn and created the students voted on which one would be the winning logo and/or slogan. Hannah Litaker's logo and slogan won! East Lawn came Thursday, May 7th and presented Hannah and the students with the T-shirt design. The entire 2nd grade enjoyed ice cream and their own T-shirt for the blood drive graciously provided by East Lawn Cemetery. We are very proud of our second graders at Indian Springs Elementary.

Students at Indian Springs Elementary School have spent 12 weeks training to run a 3K for Fast Feet for Faith under the coaching of Rebecca Templeton, Brian Winchell, Brandy Nothnagel, and Brittany Ivanich. This was a program set up to support an awesome 3rd grade student who is bravely fighting cancer. Last week the students completed the final 3K run and did an amazing job!
