Kindergarten Roundup for Lawrence public schools to start next week
It’s nearing time for the class of 2029 to start kindergarten, and the Lawrence public school district will begin hosting “Kindergarten Roundups” next week.
Roundups will be held at the district’s 14 elementary schools throughout April and May, with the first to be held at Langston Hughes Elementary School on April 7 and 8. See the attached flyer for a full schedule, which is also available on the district's website. The 2016-2017 school boundary map is available here.
Children must be age 5 on or before Aug. 31 to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten for next school year. All new kindergarten families will begin enrollment online and complete the process by providing the required paperwork to their school office. In addition to enrolling, roundup allows families to introduce their children to school by visiting classrooms and meeting teachers.
The required paperwork includes the following: proof of residency, a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, the child’s immunization record and a health assessment conducted by a physician or health care provider within one calendar year prior to school entry.
Parents can call their neighborhood school for the specific times of Kindergarten Roundup and further instructions. Phone numbers for each school are listed on the roundup schedule.
