Please note our Immunization Policy:
Independent Presbyterian Church Day School Immunization
You have the power to protect your child
In light of recent vaccine-preventable
disease outbreaks and appropriate research, the Day School Committee, including
our committee pediatrician, has updated our immunization policy.
To attend the Independent Presbyterian
Church Day School, children must be immunized with the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of
Family Physicians recommended following vaccines according to their appropriate
age guidelines: RV (Rotavirus), DTaP
(Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis), Hib (Meningitis), MMR (Measles, Mumps,
& Rubella), PCV (Pneumococcus), IPV (Polio), and Varicella (Chicken Pox).
Verified health exemptions will be taken. Having our students vaccinated will
help protect children under the recommended vaccination age, our students with
compromised immune systems, and pregnant mothers.
Thank you for doing your part in providing
our children and families with safe and long lasting protection.
you have any questions, please call Kathy Leaver, 930-8166.
Requests for enrollment will be filled according to the following priority categories:
1. Children of IPC members.
2. Children who currently are enrolled in the Day School.
3. Children who have a sibling currently enrolled in the Day School.
4. Children who have had a sibling enrolled in the Day School in the past.
5. All others.
Please note that none of these priority categories guarantee enrollment.
Registration forms are submitted online. However, please note that the order in which the applications are received does not play a role in how or if applicants are accepted.
The application process includes a Registration fee that is non-refundable and is not applied toward tuition. The registration fee will be refunded only if the family moves out of the Birmingham metropolitan area or if we are unable to offer your child placement in the program.
The child's age will determine what class he/she is eligible to attend. When registering your child you must apply for the appropriate class that corresponds to his/her age.
Once you are notified that your child has been placed in the IPC Day School, arrangement for payment of tuition must be made by May 1st.
A waiting list will be kept during the school year, and additions can be made to this list during this year as well. The same priority categories apply to filling placements as they become available.
CLASS PLACEMENT: We place children in classes based on the following criteria: age, boy/girl ratio, teacher input, school district, and personalities. Specific teacher requests are not accepted. However, any concerns you may have regarding class placement (personality conflicts or special needs) are considered and must be submitted to the Director in writing by May 1st. After class placements are made, changes are rarely approved. Requests for changes are only accepted in writing and will be reviewed by the Class Placement Committee.
