(WTVM) -

Summer is coming to a close and the first day of school for most Muscogee County students is next Wednesday, August 7.

Verification day was in full swing Friday and long lines formed as parents and kids got their last minute paperwork in before the first day of school next week.

Families reported to their assigned school to complete registration, gather transportation information and meet faculty and staff.

However, the day turned frustrating for some parents when specific forms they had to turn in were forgotten, especially parents registering children for pre-k in the district for the first time.

"Children are assigned to Pre-K classes through the lottery Pre-K program as long as we get the documentation before Wednesday they can start Wednesday," explains Karen Wilson, Director at 30th Avenue Preschool.

As a reminder, parents registering their preschooler for the first time will need:

  • Verification of child's date of birth
  • Child's social security card
  • Proof of address indicating parent's name and address.

If none of these documents are available in the parent's name due to living with someone else, a notarized Affidavit of Residency must be completed by both the owner/tenant and the parent.

To find a complete list of needed paperwork to make sure your preschooler ready before August  7, log onto https://www.muscogee.k12.ga.us.
