Register for Kindergarten Now!
If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, please register for kindergarten! The process takes 20-30 minutes and school staff will follow up with you later in the summer. With schools closed, online registration is the easiest option, but paper registration packets are available at food pantry sites at 7 schools during the summer. You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program or has an IEP.

To be eligible for our pre-kindergarten programs, children must be at least 3 years old by September 1 of the enrolling year.
