Culpeper County Schools - Preschool & Kindergarten Registration for 2014-2015
© Culpeper TimesKindergarten registration for children attending Culpeper County Public Schools will begin in March 2014. Children entering kindergarten this fall must be 5 years of age on or before September 30, 2014.
Culpeper County Public Schools also offers preschool programs at all elementary schools except Emerald Hill Elementary. Parents may submit an application to register their preschool child who will be 4 years of age on or before September 30, 2014. Preschool programs are dependent upon federal and state funding. Once all applications have been received, the parents will be given a separate appointment time to have their child screened for the preschool program based on economic need and educational need.
Please register your child on the date indicated below at the elementary school he or she will be attending. If you are unsure which school your child should attend, please call the Public Schools Transportation Office at (540) 825-5446.
While the parent/guardian is completing the paperwork necessary to enroll a student, the child will be taken to a quiet area, free of distractions and given a brief screening by one of the kindergarten teachers. You may wish to prepare your child for this separation from you, as some children are hesitant to leave with someone unfamiliar to them.
