Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-21 School Year

All children who will be 5 years of age on or before September 30, 2020, must be registered for kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year. Parents wishing to delay their child’s attendance for one year must submit a written request to the Superintendent.

Kindergarten registration is done at the elementary school the student will attend. There are two kindergarten registration periods:
  • Early bird registration, February 3-28, is for families who already have children enrolled in Frederick County Public Schools.

  • Regular kindergarten registration, March 3-31, is for families who do not have children currently enrolled in Frederick County Public Schools.
