Kindergarten Information

Is your child ready for kindergarten? Watch this presentation!

Not not sure which elementary school your child(ren) will attend?

Check the school district locator.

Roanoke County Schools will hold registration for upcoming kindergarten children, and children presently enrolled in private kindergarten who will attend first grade in public schools during the 2015 - 2016 school year. 

All children who will be five years old on or before September 30, 2015, are eligible for kindergarten.  Parents should register their children at the elementary school in their home area beginning on Monday, February 2 from Noon to 6:30 p.m. Parents can register their children for kindergarten any regular school day after Feb. 2 if they can't attend a kickoff event.

Parents should bring the following information to registration: 

* Note:  A driver’s license or vehicle registration will not be accepted as proof of residency.

Schools must have the physical and immunization record on file prior to the first day of school or students will not be allowed to attend school.  Children currently enrolled in a Roanoke County Public Schools preschool program who are eligible for kindergarten must go through the registration process.  If the date of the current physical and immunization record on file exceeds 12 months of the first day of school, an updated physical and immunization record is required before the first day of school.
