Enrollment into the Firehouse is open to all families. We encourage you to come to tour our facility, pick up an enrollment packet, and meet our staff. All enrollment forms must be completed and turned in on or before the first day your child starts at our school. All children must be up to date with current immunizations and a copy needs to be provided with the enrollment paperwork. We must require a statement from your child's physician clearing your child of any communicable diseases. Any family choosing not to immunize their child, must fill out a Parent Acknowledgement form from the school and a form provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services. To download this form, please visit www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize. Please allow 2-4 weeks for this form to be processed by TDSHS and then returned to you to be notarized. Be sure to review our history with DPFS
Below you will find links to all our paperwork that is required for enrollment at our school. Please review and bring with you and we can enroll your child or children in our school. Call or e-mail us with any questions you might have.
You can download the forms and bring them into the Day School Enrollment Paperwork Parent Handbook
