If entering kindergarten, your child must be five years old by August 15, 2017 to enroll in kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year.

Please follow these 3 steps to be prepared for the registration day.

(Step 1 is for NEW students only. Returning students skip to Step 2.)

Step 2:  Go to Skyward and request a skyward account if you have never had a student in the Wilson County School System.
