Kindergarten Registration Information

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

Welcome Class of 2033! 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 SCHOOLS has been postponed and will not be on Thursday, April 2, 2020 as previously scheduled. We will announce the new date as soon as we can. Beginning Monday, April 6, all paperwork, and the folded 4 page form to fill out that is not online, will be available during the Grab and Go meal pickup at the O'Donnell Middle School from 10:00-11:30 am Monday-Friday while school is closed. During the Grab and Go process, the staff member on duty will request you let them put the documents in the trunk of your car so everyone stays safe.

Kindergarten information and English registration paperwork have been mailed to families on the Town of Stoughton Census. If you didn't receive it, the paperwork is available at the bottom of this page. Portuguese and French documents are being added as available. If you need printed registration paperwork in a language other than English, please contact the Principal of the school your child will be attending. They will help you.

All paperwork, and the folded 4 page form that is not online, will be available during the Grab and Go meal pickup at the O'Donnell Middle School each week from 10:00-11:30 am on Monday-Friday while school is closed.

Documents required to register your child: 

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 tentatively be in June 2020, depending on when Registration Day is rescheduled. 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 as soon as possible.

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.
