Kindergarten Registration

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 12:57pm

Registration for students entering Kindergarten in Fall 2019 started on March 11th. 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. New this school year: parents/guardians can start the registration process online!

The following documents are needed for registration:

  • Child’s evidence of birth
  • An authorized record of immunizations
  • Proof of residency in the form of a signed lease or deed and a current utility bill
  • Photo ID of parent/guardian
  • Proof of custody (if applicable)

Once you have all of the required documents, please call the school to set up a registration appointment.
