(Virtual) Registration Week is March 6th-10th, 2023!

Parents/guardians of children who will be five as of September 1, 2023, must enroll their children in kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Note: Parents/guardians without access to a computer should contact their child’s school for assistance in completing the registration form.

The HCPSS Getting Ready for Kindergarten page, which includes resources to support kindergarten readiness and online registration, has been updated with additional information and resources for families. This includes information that is typically covered in the Road to Kindergarten live event, such as kindergarten readiness, the kindergarten program, and registering children for school. The live Road To Kindergarten events will not take place this year due to the pandemic. We also encourage families to visit the HCPSS 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. The Transition to Kindergarten Workgroup is working on additional readiness resources that can be implemented at home or in early learning centers. Feel free to view last year's guides below. Once we receive materials for 2023-2024, we will update the page.
