Kindergarten Registration Opens Next Week!
We’re so excited to begin enrolling the Class of 2034, we’re kicking off kindergarten registration earlier than ever this year! Beginning next Tuesday, February 23, families can register new kindergarteners for the 2021-2022 school year using a convenient online registration form.
Once the enrollment form is live and accepting registrations on Feb. 23, the link to register will be shared publicly on the HCPS website, social media, and in advertisements across local online and print media.
If you’re new to the kindergarten registration process, or if it’s the first time you’ve done it online, you may have some questions.
Here are the “must haves” that guardians will need to have in hand when registering a child for kindergarten:
– Official Birth Certificate: (a certified copy of birth certificate is preferred; a mother’s copy of birth certificate, passport or other official indication of birth is acceptable). A certified copy may be obtained at the Register of Deeds office in the city of birth or go to www.vitalcheck.com/?clicked=1
– Proof of Residence (example: utility bill with physical address)
Below is a list of the documents a child’s school will need by the first day of school:
– Immunization Record
– Physical exam
– Social Security Number (desired, but not required)
Have other questions about kindergarten registration that aren’t addressed here? Submit your questions about the kindergarten registration process in this Google Form, and tune into HCPS Facebook and Twitter feeds next week for videos of elementary school principals with the answers!
Share Your Love for Educators on NC Digital Learning Day!
NC Digital Learning Day is coming up next week on February 25, and we’re inviting families to help us celebrate our educators through tools developed by the state!
What is it? Digital Learning Day became a national annual event 10 years ago as a way to highlight effective digital teaching and learning and to share promising practices. This year, North Carolina Digital Learning Day (#NCDLDay) will be an opportunity to celebrate and honor educators in our state.
From now through #NCDLDay on February 25 (and beyond!), the NCDPI Digital Teaching and Learning Division is inviting NC educators to visit the NC Digital Learning Day Wakelet and share stories of overcoming challenges, connecting with students, and finding moments of joy and success among the grief and struggles of the last year. This Wakelet will also be a space where NC educators can inspire colleagues by sharing a favorite digital learning resource, a motivating quote, and more.
Everyone is welcome to join the celebration, which is where our HCPS Families come in! Visit the #NCDLDay Wakelet to explore the stories and resources shared, and take a moment to share a sentiment of appreciation and gratitude for our amazing educators.
Be sure to visit the Wakelet often to see new content, and follow NCDPI Digital Teaching and Learning on Twitter and Facebook as well as the hashtag #NCDLDay for even more moments of celebration as we honor North Carolina educators.
Families and students can also download and use NCDLDay “thank you note” templates and graphics (like the one pictured) to share social media posts of gratitude to favorite teachers, and backgrounds for virtual classroom and meeting spaces.
