Albemarle County Public Schools will host Kindergarten Registration on Wednesday, March 21.

Kindergarten Registration is an opportunity for parents to receive assistance with the enrollment process, present required documentation, and learn more about our kindergarten program.

Prior to March 21, we encourage parents to complete the online registration form.

On March 21, parents may visit the school their child will attend to provide required documentation, including their child’s original birth certificate, school entrance health form, and two proofs of residency. (Acceptable proofs of residency most commonly include a mortgage or lease agreement and a paid Albemarle County tax receipt or utility bill.)

For more information, call 434-296-5877. For bilingual assistance, call 434-296-6517. (Para asistencia bilingüe, llame 434-296-6517.)

For assistance registering a child who was not born in the United States or speaks a language other than English, or if the documents needed for school registration were issued in a foreign country, contact the International and ESOL Office at 434-296-6517.
