Children must be 5 years old by August 31st to enter Kindergarten.
It's important to register your soon-to-be Kindergarten student so we can plan ahead for the 2020-2021 school year so we can secure the number of classrooms and teachers needed for the fall enrollment. If you have friends, relatives or neighbors who live in Stoughton, and will be registering a kindergarten age child, please pass on this information.
Kindergarten registration will take place in the cafeteria at the Stoughton High School located at 232 Pearl Street, Stoughton, MA 02072 on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM & 6:00 – 7:30 PM. Interpreters will be present at registration. If you don't register your child on that day, please contact your child's school as soon as possible.
Kindergarten information and registration paperwork will be made available on each of the individual school’s websites shortly.
Please plan ahead and get your child's ORIGINAL birth certificate from the town or city hall in the location where your child was born. You will also need 2 proofs of residency, such as a current lease or mortgage statement and a current utility bill, and your child's most recent immunization record. This requirement also applies to students who currently attend the Jones Preschool program.
Kindergarten Orientation will be in June 2020. Please check your child's school website for the day and time because they vary per school. This orientation is for parents/guardians and incoming students. The date will be announced in the spring.
After your child is registered, be sure to check the school web site for visiting days before school starts in September 2020.
