Kindergarten Round-Up 2017 Information

kindergarten
All parents who have a child who will be five years old by or by September 1st, 2017 should plan on attending a Kindergarten Round-Up at their neighborhood elementary school. It is important for parents to call the school and let them know they will be attending so that the school can prepare information packages for the parents. However, please attend even if you are not able to call in advance. Weather or other unforeseen circumstances could affect the date or time, so contacting the school in advance is a good idea. The annual Kindergarten Round-Up provides parents with the opportunity to find out about their neighborhood school and enroll their child for the fall semester.

Under State law, a child must be 5 by September 1 to enroll in kindergarten. However, parents with a child whose 5th birthday falls after the new September 1 deadline but before December 1 have until August 15, 2017 to complete a simple WAIVER that will allow them to enroll their child in kindergarten.

YOU WILL NEED A WAIVER FOR:

  • 2017-2018 If your child turns 5 years of age after SEPTEMBER 1, 2017, but before December 1, 2017.

The 2017 waiver will be available soon at all elementary schools in the district, the Student Services Office located in the Administration Building, 18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124, or on the district’s website: www.dearbornschools.org. Waivers only need to be completed in the year your child will be attending kindergarten. There is no waiver available for children turning 5 after December 1.

    Hi! My daughter will be starting kindergarten in fall. I missed the date for kindergarten round up. Will you please send me the information I need?

    • Hi Crystal,
      We’re asking that parents come in and pick up Kindergarten registration packets from the Whitmore Bolles office so we can explain the forms and answer questions. Office hours are 8am-4:30pm. Please call 313-827-6800 if you have any questions about registration.

      Completed packets and required paperwork can be brought to the office between 9am and 3pm.

  2. Thank you! says:

    Can the registration information that was included in the folder during Kindergarten Round Up be posted online here? That would be helpful for parents who were not able to attend that night or happen to need another copy. Thank you.

    • Unfortunately, some of the required registration forms are not in a format that can be posted online and printed (specific color, carbon form, etc) Kindergarten registration packets can be picked up in the school office. Office hours are 8am-4:30pm. Please call 313-827-6800 if you need any information about registration.
      Completed packets and required paperwork can be brought to the office between 9am and 3pm.
