Kindergarten Enrollment is Set for April 21 in KCKPS

April 12, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

Enrollment time is here for kindergartners starting school in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools (KCKPS) in August. On Thursday, April 21, all KCKPS elementary schools will be hosting Kindergarten Roundup sessions. Parents with children who will be five years old on or before August 31, 2016 should take this opportunity to enroll them for the 2016-2017 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.

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

  • Proof of Residence: A utility bill (gas, water, electric), rental agreement, or escrow agreement. (A phone bill is not a valid proof of residency.)
  • A state issued birth certificate for each child enrolling in kindergarten or grade one — a birth certificate or other proof of age for all other students. (Wallet size birth certificates and hospital certificates are not accepted.)
  • A Kansas certificate of immunization for each child.
  • A physical exam/health assessment for each child nine years of age or younger. Those coming from another school in Kansas must present a copy of the physical health assessment when enrolling in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools.
  • A Social Security Card for each child, if available.

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