System makes room for displaced students

September 6, 2005

Albany- School officials say they have registered 30 children since Friday and are expecting that number to rise daily.

Parents will not have to submit birth certificates, immunization records, or school records, but do need to contact the public information office to find out what zone their children are in and what school they will attend.

"Whether they're in a shelter, a hotel, a motel, or staying with a relative, or a friend, we can tell them what school they need to register that child for," says public information officer Brenda Horton.

Uniforms will be donated to elementary school students enrolling in the system. Information about transportation and lunches will be provided to parents at the schools.

For additional information contact the Dougherty County School System Public Information office at 229-431-1264.
