Kindergarten Roundup Set for April 16 at All KCKPS Elementary Schools

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 26, 2015

Contact: Tammy Dodderidge, communications manager, (913) 279-2225

Enrollment time is here for kindergartners starting school in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools (KCKPS) next fall. On Thursday, April 16, all KCKPS elementary schools will be hosting Kindergarten Roundup sessions. Parents with children who will be five years old on or before August 31, 2015 should take this opportunity to enroll them for the 2015-2016 school year.

Kindergarten Roundup is for both parents and children. Activities taking place during the sessions differ from school to school, but children will be given the opportunity to get acquainted with the kindergarten teacher(s), and learn about going to school, while parents complete the necessary paperwork. In many instances, translators will be provided. (Please note: Dates and locations for preschool enrollment for the 2015-16 school year are listed below. Parents with questions should call 913-627-5257).

Parents should bring the following information with them for kindergarten enrollment:

  • Their child's state birth certificate (must be the original, not a copy)
  • Their child's current immunization records
  • Proof of a recent physical for their child
  • Proof of address (such as a utility bill or lease agreement with the parents’ name on it)

Times and locations of the enrollment for each school are listed below:
