April 11 is kindergarten registration day

Get ready for kindergarten registration

(WWBT) - It’s time to get your kids registered for kindergarten.

For those kids who will turn 5 before Sept. 30, registration for kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year is April 11.

Children must register at the elementary schools where they are zoned to attend.

Documents needed include the child’s birth certificate, photo ID of parent or legal guardian, proof of residency such as a deed, mortgage statement, lease or purchase agreement as well as two other address verification documents such as utility bill, voter registration card, vehicle registration, tax document or bank statement.

A school entrance health form and immunization record are also required before the start of school.

Each school system is registering students throughout the day:

  • Chesterfield: 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Hanover: 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Henrico: 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.
  • Petersburg: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Richmond: 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

The United Way is also helping children and parents get ready for kindergarten with a program that is part of its “Steps to Success” framework. Click here for more information.
