Kindergarten Registration

Online registration for the 2019-2020 school is now open! To shorten your wait time, our front office staff prefers that online registration be completed before coming in person. Be sure to choose 2019-2020 for the next school year. Parents can complete the registration process for students entering Kindergarten in Fall 2019 (finalize paperwork) by calling our front office at 410-313-7165 for an appointment.

This final step confirms area residency, guardianship of the child and ensures that the registration process is completed correctly.

Kindergarten is mandatory in Maryland, so if your child turns 5 by September 1, 2019, you must register your child for the 2019-20 school year. Parents or guardians are to register students at the school serving the address where the child’s parent or guardian resides. Information on neighborhood schools can be found through School Locator on the school system web site or by calling the Public Information Office at 410-313-6682.

It is helpful and will save time if you either upload the required documents before coming, or bring a copy for staff to keep. The following documents are needed for registration:

  •     Child’s evidence of birth (birth certificate, birth registration or baptismal certificate)
  •     An authorized record of immunizations
  •     Proof of residency in the form of a signed complete lease (including landlord signatures) or deed
  •     Current utility bill
  •     Photo ID of parent/guardian
  •     Proof of custody (if applicable)

**If you have a child currently attending an HCPSS PreK program, there is no need to re-register your student for Kindergarten.
**If you are a multi-family enrollment, please email our PPW, Kevin Lee at for an appointment. Both host and guest must attend the appointment.
