Welcome to the Rochester Community Schools 2016-2017 Kindergarten page. We have collected a variety of resources for parents of incoming kindergarten students to prepare for this exciting stage of your child's life. You can also find school-specific information on your child's school webpage.  If you are not sure which school your child will attend, or you need further registration information, please contact the Student Enrollment Office at 248-726-3017 or 248-726-3018. 

Children who will be 5 by September 1, 2016 are eligible to enroll in kindergarten. However, if your child will be 5 by December 1, 2016, you may sign a waiver and have him or her enrolled.

For answers to all your questions, new and previous Kindergarten parents were encouraged to attend the Kindergarten Information Night held February 16, 2016.  If you were unable to attend that evening, below is the file of information that was distributed.  Please mark your calendar for Kindergarten Registration on March 22, 2016 at your child's home school. Registration times vary with the schools, but there is a complete list of all elementary school Registration Program start times listed in the packet available below.
