Kindergarten Enrollment & Information
If you have a rising Kindergarten student and have not yet enrolled, please do so as soon as possible. Begin the enrollment process online at the New Student Enrollment site, then bring the required documents to your current (2021-2022) base school. Please spread the word to any neighbors to whom this may apply!
Kindergarten Staggered Entry
WCPSS Kindergarten students begin school on a staggered entry schedule. The staggered entry experience is extremely valuable for parents, students, and teachers. Students attend their staggered day with a smaller number of children to allow them to get to know the building, the Kindergarten teachers, and a few potential classmates. Throughout the day, teachers will complete a few entry assessments with each student. This helps us to get to know students academically and socially, so we can create balanced classes. Parents will need to provide transportation to and from school.
- Kindergartners will attend only one day of school, from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM on either August 29, 30, or 31.
- Families will receive their teacher assignment via email on Thursday, September 1st.
- There will be a drop-in Kindergarten Open House on Thursday, September 1st, from 4:30-6:30. Parents and students will be able to visit their classroom and get to know their assigned teacher.
- All Kindergarten students will begin full-time on Tuesday, September 6th.
More specific information will be shared with Kindergarten families in the coming weeks, including a sign-up genius to select your child’s Staggered Entry day.
