Kindergarten Orientation Sessions to be Held in April and May

March 21, 2012
Kindergarten orientation sessions will take place between April 10 and May 29, 2012, for children who will enter kindergarten next school year (2012-2013). During orientation, parents and students will meet the school principal, kindergarten teachers and other school staff members.

Parents will have an opportunity to ask questions about the school’s procedures and programs; enroll students for next school year and complete important forms. The sessions will also help students become acquainted with the school environment.

Children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2012 can be enrolled in kindergarten.

Parents should call their home school to make an appointment to register for that school’s specific orientation date(s).

Parents who are not certain which elementary school serves their area should contact the Boundaries Office at 240-314-4710. Parents can also access the
School Assignment Locator on the MCPS website.

An Early Entrance to Kindergarten application is available for parents with children who will turn 5 years old between September 2, 2012 and October 15, 2012. Parents who seek early entrance consideration for their children should inquire at their home school.

For more information about the kindergarten program and orientation sessions, parents can call their
home school or the Division of Early Childhood Programs and Services at 301-230-0691.
