KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION 2024-2025
When does Kindergarten Registration begin and how do I register my child? Registration begins on February 26, 2024, and can only be completed online using PowerSchool. Click here to access Enrollment Express. The actual enrollment process is very similar to any new student entering Granville Schools even if the family already has a child in Granville Schools. If you begin the registration process prior to February 26, 2024 for your kindergarten student, that registration will be deleted and you will need to start it again on February 26. Specific steps in that process using Enrollment Express can be found here.
What is the age requirement for registering for kindergarten? Your child must be 5 years old by September 30, 2024. If your child turns 5 after the deadline, and you believe he/she is ready for kindergarten, you may request early entrance testing. Your request can be sent to Alesha Haybin at [email protected].
Do I need to come to a building as part of registration? No; however, you must upload certain items and documents in Enrollment Express.
What information do I need to complete to be “fully registered?” Registration information can be found here.
What if my child’s annual check-up/physical will occur after March 13? Will my child still be fully registered if I don’t have a physical form to attach? Yes, we understand that your child’s annual check-up/physical will occur based on their birth date. This is the only document that can be submitted later. You will need to submit your student’s most current vaccination record prior to the March 13 date for full day consideration. Here is a link to the physician's physical form for your convenience.
What if I have questions while completing registration? All questions regarding registration should be directed to Kelli Small at [email protected].
How will full-day placement be decided? Placement in full day for the 2024-2025 school year will be determined through a lottery. Any registration for full day completed by 11:59 PM on March 13 will be included in the lottery. Children registered for full day after March 13, or who did not get placed in the lottery process, will be added to the waitlist.
How will students be chosen from the waitlist if additional full day spots are open? An additional lottery will be completed as new spots are available.
What is the cost for full-day kindergarten? Full-day includes a $400 per month tuition. The deposit is due at the time of screening (see below) and will cover tuition for August and September.
When will I be notified if my child is in full-kindergarten? Families will be notified of placement in full day by April 10. This notification will come through email.
How will I know if my child is AM or PM half day? Several variables, including transportation, determine AM or PM placement. Families will be notified of placement by the end of June.
When is kindergarten screening? Screening will be held June 5 and June 6 at Granville Elementary School. A link for registration will be provided to families in the spring of 2024. At this time, there is no online option for kindergarten screening.
What if we cannot attend the June screening dates? Typically, a second option for a screening in August is provided. If you are unavailable in June, please email Principal Travis Morris ([email protected]).
Is screening required for entrance to kindergarten? No. The purpose of screening is to provide teachers with baseline information about your child’s skills, personality, and development.
How do I stay informed as information is released and shared? The best way to stay informed is sign up for the GES Family Newsletter. You can do that using this link. Information is also shared on school social media sites. Be certain the email address in PowerSchool is one that is checked regularly.
Where can I find more information about kindergarten or touring the building? Click here to view a brief video with information about kindergarten at Granville Elementary School. Guided tours of the building are not currently occurring; however, we are planning to provide a self-guided opportunity at screening and/ or prior to the start of the school year.
What if I have questions that are specific to kindergarten and not just registration? Questions about kindergarten or school operations can be directed to our school secretary at [email protected].
