2018-19 RCS Kindergarten Page

Welcome to the Rochester Community Schools 2018-19 Kindergarten page. The 2018-19 Kindergarten Process kicks off on February 21, 2018 with our "Annual Kindergarten Information Night" in the Stoney Creek High School auditorium, starting at 7:00 p.m.  The evening is primarily intended for first time RCS kindergarten parents or those parents who have not had a recent RCS kindergarten student.  This informational event will include presentations from various Rochester Community Schools departments, including the Superintendent, Curriculum Department, Enrichment, Food Service, and Transportation. A video collage, “A Day in the Life of a RCS Kindergartener” will be shown and Elementary Principals will also be on hand.

Please keep in mind that enrollment/registration does not occur at Kindergarten Information Night.  Kindergarten enrollment begins on March 27, 2018 when each of our elementary schools will host "Kindergarten Registration Evening".  McGregor Elementary School will host Kindergarten enrollment on March 28, 2018, due to a school conflict.  Each school will be conducting its own registration and information meeting that evening, specific to the building.  This will be an opportunity to meet and converse with the principals and kindergarten teachers on a more personal level.

Regarding eligibility for 2018-19 kindergarten, children who will be 5 by September 1, 2018 are eligible to enroll in kindergarten. However, if your child will be 5 by December 1, 2018, you may sign a waiver and have him or her enrolled.  Those forms will be posted in the future on this site.  Under the folder, "Kindergarten Enrollment Requirements", you will find what is required to enroll your child as well as immunization requirements.
