Kindergarten registration planned in county
Registration for Washington County Public Schools' fall kindergarten and pre-kindergarten classes will be held Wednesday during regular school hours at local elementary schools.
To enter kindergarten this fall, a child must observe his or her 5th birthday on or before Oct. 31. To enter pre-kindergarten in the fall, a child must observe his or her 4th birthday on or before Sept. 30 and meet eligibility criteria.
Pre-kindergarten classes currently are offered at Bester, Eastern, Funkstown, Hancock, Hickory, Lincolnshire, Marshall Street, Robinwood and Salem Avenue schools. If you are able to provide transportation, your child may be eligible to attend one of these schools even if you live outside that district.
Those registering a child for kindergarten will need the child's immunization record, proof of date of birth, Social Security number, proof of residency and blood lead screening. For more information, call 301-766-2955.
