Kindergarten and New Family Registration Week will be held on March 9-13. Parents are encouraged to visit HES from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to register their student. All information can be found on the Howard County Public School System website.
Students must be registered by their custodial parent (biological, adoptive, legal guardian). Parents can complete a registration form at their school or fill out one ahead of time to complete the registration process.
Parents must live in the school attendance area of the school in which they plan to enroll their student.
Please note: Children must be 5 years old by September 1 in order to enroll in kindergarten. Every child who is 5 years old by September 1 must be enrolled in a state approved kindergarten program this fall or have an approved waiver.
All HCPSS elementary schools provide full-day kindergarten programs.
