Register for Kindergarten - Spread the Word

Wed, 03/06/2024 - 1:26pm

We need your help in spreading the word regarding new Kindergarten registration for the 2024-2025 school year. This helps us prepare for the upcoming school year.

It is recommended that you work on a laptop or desktop to complete registration. Cell phone registration is not recommended. Please call our front office at 410-313-6900 if you have questions and/or need support with the registration process. We welcome you to SFES to complete this process.

Registration for incoming kindergarteners and newly enrolled first graders opens on Monday, 3/4. As we prepare for our upcoming school year, it is important to have your child registered to ensure we have the correct amount of teachers for our students. Please do not delay! Help us with the process by registering your new kindergartner or first grader as soon as possible.

Children must be 5 years old by 9/1/24 in order to enroll in kindergarten next school year. Every child who is 5 years old by this date must be enrolled in a kindergarten program this fall or have an approved waiver. HCPSS kindergarten is a full day program.

  • Please make certain you are on the screen for 2024-2025 if registering for the next school year.
  • Parents or guardians are to register students at the school serving the address where the child’s parent or guardian resides. Information on neighborhood schools can be found through HCPSS School Locator.
  • Complete your child’s registration online by providing the documents listed below. The registration process will be more efficient if you upload the required documents during online registration.
