Registration of New Students and Incoming Kindergarten Students
Due to the COVID-19 school closure, schools will no longer be conducting face-to-face Kindergarten Orientation documentation at the school. Instead, parents/guardians will need to start the Registration Process to enroll their children using the link below:
If you have more than one child to register, you will need to do the survey for each child.
Your information goes directly to MCPS, they will review, and if all information is correct you will then receive an email from MCPS with further directions and the proper forms for you to fill out.
The letter will look something like this:
