1-27-22 — 2022 Kindergarten Round-Up is Feb. 24

Jan. 27, 2022 ~ Kindergarten Round-Up in the Olathe School District will be held from 1-6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24 in each elementary school. Kindergarten Round-Up is a pre-enrollment activity for parents and their future kindergartners (children who will turn 5 on or before Aug. 31). Current kindergarten students do not have class that day.

Parents who are not sure which elementary school their child should attend may use the school locator feature on the district website.

Parents should bring:

  • proof of residency such as a utility bill,
  • information about the child’s immunizations and inoculations,
  • a certified copy of the birth certificate of the child, or
  • as an alternative for the child in the custody of the Secretary of Social and Rehabilitation Services, a certified copy of the court order placing the child in the custody of the secretary. In the absence of a certified copy of birth certificate for the child in kindergarten or first grade, any document that reasonably tends to establish the age of the child will be accepted as temporary proof of identity. State law governs the age at which a child may enter kindergarten or first grade, and the district cannot deviate from the law.

Reminder:

  • Parents and children must adhere to current masking protocols when entering and in the school.
  • Parents must present a form of identification upon entering the building.

Parents should contact their school for additional details and if they have questions about Kindergarten Round-Up or the enrollment process.
