Kindergarten registration time again?!

10 Jan

I was just reminded recently that kindergarten registration is upon us again.  Normally this is not very exciting news, but this year it’s different in a big way. This year, for the first time ever in Webster, parents will be registering their children for full-day kindergarten instead of half-day.

The move to full-day kindergarten for the 2013/14 school year was officially approved by the school board back in December, after the proposal drew strong community support.  The new schedule will mean some changes for families, and a lot of changes for the schools.

In anticipation of all those changes, kindergarten registration is taking place earlier than in previous years.  The process will begin the week of February 11, with each school handling its own registrations. Parent orientation sessions have also been pushed back to give schools more time to update materials. At least a few schools will hold these meetings in May.

Make sure to watch your mail for more information from your school if you have a kindergarten-aged child.  It’s also a great idea to sign up for your school’s electronic newsletter, if you haven’t already.  This is a great way to keep up on what’s happening in the school if you have kids there already, and a nice way to get acquainted if your child will be attending for the first time next year. You can sign up through the Webster School District website.  Look for this icon on the bottom right-hand portion of the page:
