On Your Way to Kindergarten?
Do you have a child headed to Kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year? Schools across our district will start holding their Open Houses the week of February 26, 2024. You can reach out to your neighborhood school for their date and time. Visit this page periodically; once schools confirm their event details, you can find them here: View Kindergarten Open Houses>>
To enroll in Kindergarten, your child must turn 5 on or before September 1, 2024
Here are the simple steps to enroll:
Step 1: Find Your School
Use the School Locator to find your child’s attendance area school. Hillsborough County Public Schools also offers many Choice and Magnet school options. Find out more about our Choice and Magnet Programs at www.HillsboroughSchools.org/Magnet and www.HillsboroughSchools.org/Choice or contact the Choice Information Line at 813-272-4692.
Step 2: Contact Your School
Call your school and find a good time to register your child. The child’s legal parent or guardian must be there to register the child. You will also need specific documentation in order to register your child for Kindergarten.
Step 3: Fill out all Documentation
View a list of enrollment documents that you will need to provide or will be asked to complete at the school site.
Remember, your child’s Kindergarten registration is not complete until all the documentation is filled out and completed. This can sometimes be a lengthy process. That’s why it’s important to get started on the registration process as soon as possible.
