- A legal document with the child's full name and date of birth
For children born in Tennessee, the parent may request a copy of the certificate of birth at https://www.vitalchek.com/ or by visiting the Hawkins County Health Department in Rogersville or Church Hill. There is a minimal fee for this service. Children born outside the state of Tennessee will need to request the birth certificate from their state of birth.

Immunization Record & Medical Examination
All students must have a Certificate of Immunization and Record of Medical Examination on file in accordance with Tennessee Department of Health regulations. Students entering public schools for the first time must present this form upon enrollment. No child can attend school in the state of Tennessee without this documentation. Paperwork may be completed, although students will not be enrolled into school until all required paperwork is turned into the school. This certificate can be issued by the Hawkins County Health Department or your child's pediatrician/primary care physician. You must turn in the original form to the school office.
- Social Security Card (optional) We ask an official copy of the child's social security card be provided to be incorporated into the official school records pertaining to the child. While this card cannot be mandated according to current State law, it is recommended by the School District because of its impact on accurate student records.
- Custodial documents (if applicable)
*We understand that you may not have access to your child's record of physical or immunizations at this point. Upload the information that you are able to at this point and you will be able to upload the record of physical and immunizations when you have that information (before school begins in the fall).
