  • Welcome to Kindergarten!

    Kindergarten is an exciting time for your child. In order for your child to be enrolled in Kindergarten in the Wichita Public Schools, they will need to be 5 years old by Aug. 31. We offer a full-day program at all of our elementary schools.

    Enrollment

    Enrollment for Kindergarten must be completed during the in-person enrollment at your assigned school from July 29-31. 

     

    • Can I enroll online if I attended Kindergarten Round Up?
      If you attended your school’s kindergarten round-up and completed forms at that time, you do not need to complete online enrollment. Please join us for in-person enrollment July 29-31, 2019 to complete the process, including paying school fees and signing up for staggered attendance the first week of school.

     

    • Can I enroll online if I did not attend Kindergarten Round Up?
      You will not be able to complete online enrollment as a new student parent’s because you do not yet have a ParentVue account set up. Please join us for in-person enrollment July 29-31, 2019 to enroll your child. You can download and complete many of the forms in advance to help the process take less time. Look for “District Enrollment Forms.”

     

    • Can I enroll online if I have an older student already in WPS?
      You can complete online enrollment for your current students during the online enrollment window (opens July 2, 2019). However, you will need to attend in-person enrollment July 29-31, 2019 to complete the enrollment process for your kindergarten student. The school staff will link that student to ParentVue account at that time. You can download and complete many of the forms in advance to help the process take less time. Look for “District Enrollment Forms.”

     

    • Can I enroll online if my kindergarten student attended pre-K in Wichita Public Schools? 
      Yes, you can complete online enrollment for your kindergarten student during the online enrollment window (opens July 2, 2019). You will also need to attend in-person enrollment July 29-31, 2019 to finalize the enrollment process for your kindergarten student.
