News from the schools

11 May

It’s a really weird school year, but some things remain the same: it’s time to start looking forward to September.

If you have a child who will be entering kindergarten, NOW is the time to register. It’s especially important to help your schools know how many students to expect this fall, so they can determine class sizes and work out any other logistics as they prepare for an unusual new year.

Kindergarten registration is under way right now. If you have a child who will be 5 years old on or before December 1, 2020, that child is eligible for kindergarten enrollment for the 2020-21 school year. Parents can download a kindergarten registration packet by visiting WCSD’s Student Registration web page at

School registration is based on residency. Webster students attend the school assigned to their home address. Use the School Locator Tool on the Student Registration website for placement information.

The safest method to submit registration paperwork is online, however, the district understands this is not possible for all parents/guardians. Therefore, completed kindergarten registration forms (along with all grade levels) will be accepted at Webster CSD’s Buildings and Grounds facility, 110 Sanford Street, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Social distancing requirements will be followed in order to ensure the health and safety of all parents, guardians, and staff members. Registration forms are located on WCSD’s Student Registration web page.

Please do not drop off any original documentation; copies will only be accepted. Student Registration staff members will reach out via email or telephone with any follow-up questions regarding submitted registration paperwork. Email Carla Watkins, District Registrar, with any questions:
