Kindergarten Registration and Sign-up For Kindergarten Baseline Assessment
The School Town of Munster will be conducting kindergarten registration on March 11, 2015 for all students who plan to attend during the 2015-2016 school year. You must register in your home school between the hours of 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Students do not need to attend registration on March 11; however, they will be required to attend on a later date for the Kindergarten Baseline Assessment.
At the time of registration, parents must present a certified/original birth certificate for the child, and a valid driver’s license with the current address. Baptismal and hospital records are not acceptable as proof of birth. At registration, parents will be asked to complete a student information sheet for their child. Parents will receive information on how to complete registration, residency and health/physical requirements.
New this year, parents will also sign up for an appointment for the Kindergarten Baseline Assessment which will be held on a separate date. Having accurate registration numbers helps us to plan the best Kindergarten experience for your child. Additionally, when kindergarten classes are filled in one building, children may have to attend at a different building other than their home school. It is important to Register Early!! In order to be eligible to register for Kindergarten, a child must be five years old on or before August 1, 2015. To register for first grade, a child must be six years old on or before August 1, 2015.
