    • I plan on sending my child to a parochial school, do I attend one of these sessions?  If your student plans on attending a parochial school, please contact that school to get information regarding their registration process.
    • Is this the same as 4K?  4K is for children that are four years of age on or before September 1, 2019.  Please visit our 4K website if this pertains to your child.
    • Do I need to sign up for a session or sign my child up right now?  It is extremely important to sign up your child for Kindergarten next school year. Signing up for a session ensures you will be able to get all the information you in a timely matter. 
    • Whats the difference between Kindergarten Sign Up and School Registration that happens in the fall?  Kindergarten Sign-Up and Welcome Day are designed to get your child signed up for Kindergarten and get your child on in the District's student system and on our radar for classroom counts.  Kindergarten is the first step into the K-5 school system, so we want to ensure a smooth transition for you and your child!  School Registration in the fall is a time we will ask for you to verify your information, gather medical and emergency information, and make sure everything is set for that first day of school as a Kindergartener.
    • I know a child that will be five, but I don't think there parents/guardians received information - what do I do?  You can send them our way!  Have them contact their resident school and we will get them the information they need to sign up.
    • I live in a neighboring city, but want my child to attend Kindergarten in Fort Atkinson. Can I sign up now?  You will want to check our Open Enrollment page to complete the open enrollment process prior to registering.
    • I have questions, who do I contact?  You will want to contact your child's resident school for any questions regarding the Kindergarten sign-up process.  Phone numbers listed above.
