Kindergarten Registration

We would like to welcome your family to the HES community. We are delighted to get to know you and your child! We have a process to help with your child’s transition into Kindergarten and would like to share with you the following timeline for registering your child for Kindergarten in the 2019–2020 school year:

MARCH 2019:

Notification of Intent and Select Full-Day or Half Day Kindergarten Class: We ask that you complete the Intent to Enroll Form and return it to the school counselor’s office no later than March 29, 2019. This will inform us of whether your child will be enrolled in full or half day kindergarten. You can either mail us the Intent to Enroll form or complete it online at https://tinyurl.com/HESIntenttoEnroll2.

1.Full-Day: All classes will be available for full-day students. This model will ensure that all families who want this program have the opportunity. The cost to families for the full day program is $3,750 per student. If you may need financial assistance, please reach out to me.

2.Half-Day: Half-Day kindergarten will also be offered to families. Instead of existing as a separate class, the students will be joining a full day classroom and will leave at approximately 11:40. The academic program will ensure instruction in the areas of the core curriculum in the morning. Enrichment of those subject areas will continue in the afternoon.

MAY 2019:

Kindergarten Registration and Screenings will take place on on Thursday, May 2nd and Friday, May 3rd 2019.

You will meet with school staff to discuss your child’s developmental and academic history and the nurse to review your child’s physical exam form and immunization records, as well as any medical concerns you may have.

While you are meeting to complete the registration process your child will conduct an academic screening with one of our kindergarten teachers. The purpose of the screening is to assess your child’s areas of strength and weakness to assist us in evaluating the needs of your child and how to best serve your child.

The entire process should take approximately 30-45 minutes.
