Kindergarten Registration Information

Children must be 5 years old by August 31st to enter Kindergarten.

It's important to register your soon-to-be Kindergarten student so we can plan ahead for the 2020-2021 school year so we can secure the number of classrooms and teachers needed for the fall enrollment. If you have friends, relatives or neighbors who live in Stoughton, and will be registering a kindergarten age child, please pass on this information.

Kindergarten Registration for all elementary schools will be on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM. If you didn't register your child then, please contact your child's school as soon as possible.

Kindergarten information and registration paperwork will be made available on each of the individual school’s websites. Registration packets can also be picked up at the school in late February 2020.

Please plan ahead and get your child's ORIGINAL birth certificate from the town or city hall in the location where your child was born. You will also need 2 proofs of residency, such as a current lease or mortgage statement and a current utility bill, and your child's most recent immunization record. This requirement also applies to students who currently attend the Jones Preschool program.

Kindergarten Orientation will be in June 2020. Please check your child's school website for the day and time because they vary per school. This orientation is for parents/guardians and incoming students. The date will be announced in the spring.

After your child is registered, be sure to check the school web site for visiting days in August 2020.

Kindergarten Registration must be complete in order to enter on September 2020. Until a student's registration is complete, he/she will not be assigned to a classroom and may not begin in September 2020.
