Registration of students for kindergarten at Greenwich Public Schools for the 2019-20 school year will take place Thursday, Feb 21, with a snow date of Feb 22.

The process begins with a Kindergarten Orientation program for parents at each of the schools on the 21st (Snow Date: Feb. 22). Parents are then asked to make an appointment in March or April – depending on school-specific dates – for Kindergarten Visitation to verify residency and register incoming Kindergarteners at their respective schools, according to officials.

In May 2019, incoming Kindergarteners are invited to experience Kindergarten classrooms in their school on Kindergarten Visitation day – Thursday, May 16, 2019. Please see the below Kindergarten Orientation and Registration schedule for each of the Greenwich Public Elementary Schools.

All schools will mail invitations for Kindergarten Visitation Day to families that have registered and/or are otherwise known to the schools as having incoming Kindergarten students. Parents/Guardians that have a child entering Kindergarten in the Fall of 2019 who do not receive a letter from the school in their attendance area should contact that school office for information on this process. Children who turn five on or before January 1, 2020 are eligible for Kindergarten in the 2019-2020 school year.

Dismissal/buses for this year’s kindergarten classes will be at 12:00 noon on May 16.

Connecticut State Law and Greenwich Board of Education Policy require students attending and registering for Greenwich Public Schools to verify their residency in Greenwich, Connecticut. Families may verify residency at the registration appointment, however residency must be verified before registration can be completed. The documents required to verify residency with instructions for all types of residency are available on the Greenwich Public Schools website at www.greenwichschools.org/residency.

Information will also be provided at Kindergarten Orientation on February 21.
