Online Registration for students entering Kindergarten in Fall 2021 starts on Monday, March 8th and runs through Friday, March 12th. There will be no in-person registration appointments at this time.
Step 2: Complete registration online by providing the documents listed below. The registration process is easier if you upload them during online registration. Otherwise, you will be asked to submit them via email as pdfs. I-phone users can scan documents through your notes app. (Images must be clear.)
The following documents are needed for registration:
Child’s evidence of birth (ie: birth certificate, baptismal certificate)
An authorized record of immunizations
Proof of residency in the form of a signed lease or deed including signature pages
Current utility bill
Photo ID of parent/guardian
Proof of custody (if applicable)
Please make sure this information is completed in your online registration:
Prior Care - What type of schooling did your student have prior to Kindergarten? (Needs a value of 2. ie: if PK for a half day (1) and with parent the other half (1) = 2 or PK full day = 2)
Home Language: this is language family uses at home to communicate with one another
Dominant Language: this is language the student is most comfortable speaking or prefers when able to speak multiple languages. If a family is confused about this (b/c child speaks more than one language) ask, “which is your child’s strongest language?"
Native Language: this is language student learned first and may be only language the student communicates in.
If you have a child currently attending an HCPSS PreK program, there is no need to re-register your student for Kindergarten. Also, if your child is a current HCPSS student at MWES or any other HCPSS school, please DO NOT re-register your student.
If you have a multi-family living arrangement, an appointment with our PPW, Rhoda MacCormack is required. A representative of the host family and guest family must be present for the appointment. Email email@example.com for more information.
Health Forms - These forms should be completed by your child's pediatrician and dentist and emailed to our cluster nurse firstname.lastname@example.org or health assistant email@example.com prior to the first day of school or as soon as your child has their 5 year check-up.
The HCPSS Getting Ready for Kindergarten page, which includes resources to support kindergarten readiness and online registration, will be updated this winter with additional information and resources for families. This will include the information that is typically covered in the Road to Kindergarten live event, which includes information about kindergarten readiness, the kindergarten program, and registering children for school. We also encourage families to visit our Grade K Family and Community Resources page for more information about the kindergarten instructional program and ways families can support their children at home. The Prekindergarten Family and Community Resources page also contains resources for families and providers for children currently in their prekindergarten year. *Please note that LES does not have a PK program. Please contact Bushy Park ES for more information about PK.
