Kindergarten and Begindergarten (pre-K) Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be held Tuesday, March 6, 2018, from 9:30 am-2:30 pm and 4 pm-6:30 pm at each elementary school. 
In the event of a snow day on March 6, kindergarten registration will be held on Tuesday, March 28, 2018, from 9:30 am-2:30 pm and 4-6:30 pm at each elementary school.

Your Child's School
Kindergarten registration will be held at each elementary school. Students should be registered at their attendance area (home) school. If you are unsure which school your child will attend, please visit our Find Your School page.

At Kindergarten Registration
During the registration event, parents and their child(ren) will be able to meet the school’s principal, take a tour of the school, see the playground and visit a kindergarten classroom. Additionally, the Howell Public Schools Transportation Department will have a school bus at each elementary for children to explore. Students who are registered on March 6, will receive a stuffed animal from their principal.
To Register Your Child(ren) Students must by five years old by September 1, 2018. According to Michigan Law, if a student will not be five years old by September 1, 2018, but will be five years old by December 1, 2018, they may be enrolled in kindergarten if their parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing that he or she intends to enroll their child in kindergarten. A Kindergarten Waiver Form is included in the kindergarten registration packet. Packets will be available for pick-up at each elementary school and in the district's Registration Office. Packets also available at registration event.
