Pinellas school news: Kindergarten registration and last-minute help to apply for special programs

kindergarten registration begins next week

The kindergarten registration process for Pinellas County Schools begins Monday, and parents will be able to tour schools during the district's annual Kindergarten Roundup Tuesday through Thursday. The roundup offers open houses at which families can register students for kindergarten, explore classrooms, speak with teachers, find out about aftercare and learn how to get involved. The district encourages families to register every incoming kindergarten student with their zoned school and complete the enrollment process as soon as possible — even families who intend to apply for a special program such as a magnet or fundamental school this month. Students who are invited to an application program can have their registration changed to the application school. Visit pcsb.org/KG for registration information and dates and times of roundups at each school.
