Kindergarten Registration

Children turning 5 on or before September 30 should be registered for kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year. 

I know it seems early, but now is the time for students to be registered. We are planning playdates, screenings, orientation, and other gatherings for kindergarten students to get to know their teachers and each other over the summer. Register soon to make sure your child doesn't miss out! 

Students should be registered at the school they will be attending. A boundary locator is available online, along with a list of required documents, and additional help for military families, families who need language assistance, and other forms of support. 

If you know someone who needs this information, please forward this email or have them call Pine Spring Elementary at 571-226-4400 to schedule a time with Ms. Breeden.  

We are currently anticipating Kindergarten Orientation in-person at Pine Spring on March 3rd. We will share additional information next week.

We are so excited to be learning together again.
