Pinellas school news: Kindergarten registration begins in January

Kindergarten Roundups for incoming students in 2016

The Pinellas County school system will host its annual Kindergarten Roundup, with open houses at each elementary school, Jan. 12-14. The events come as the kindergarten registration process begins Jan. 11. At the roundups, parents can register 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 District Application program such as a magnet or fundamental school in January. 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.
