Second semester in many local schools has barely gotten started, yet many districts are planning for next year’s Kindergarten class. Many public and private schools have announced their Kindergarten Roundups. Parents of future kindergarteners need to get a few things in order to get their little learners ready for school. Schools require an original birth certificate, two proofs of residency, and records of immunizations. If families are thinking of sending their kindergarteners to a school that is not their neighborhood school, as determined by their address, now is the time to look at the schools of choice process. Details are on district websites for moving within a district. Details for moving to another school district are on the St. Clair County RESA website. Children need to be five years old by September 1 to enroll in Kindergarten, according to Michigan law, but parents can request a waiver for a younger student. Most districts require registration for Kindergarten Roundup. Details have been listed on district websites and social media pages.
