2019-20 Kindergarten Registration

Frederick County Public Schools will be conducting kindergarten registration for the 2019-20 school year in two phases this year in an effort to make the process more efficient. The parents of rising kindergarten students who currently have other children enrolled in Frederick County Public Schools are being asked to register their student(s) for kindergarten during the early bird registration period from February 4 through March 1. The parents of rising kindergarten students who do not have any children currently attending Frederick County Public Schools should complete the registration process from March 4-8. All parents registering children to attend kindergarten for the first time in August 2019 should complete the registration process at the elementary school their child will attend. Specific registration times for both the early bird and regular registration periods can be acquired by contacting each elementary school. All children who will be five years of age on or before September 30, 2019, must register for kindergarten.

Tips on deciding if your child is too sick for school:

Send a child to school if:
1.)  They have a runny nose or just a little cough, but no other symptoms.
2.)  They haven't taken any fever reducing medicine for 24 hours, AND haven't had a fever during that time. 
3.)  They haven't thrown up or had any diarrhea for 24 hours.

Keep a child home if:
1.)  They have a temperature higher than 100 degrees even after taking medicine.
2.)  They are throwing up or have diarrhea.
3.)  Their eyes are pink and crusty.

Call the doctor if:
1.)  They have a temperature higher than 100 degrees for more than two days.
2.)  They have been throwing up or have diarrhea for more than two days.
3.)  They have the sniffles more than a week, and they aren't getting better.

  • Tdap vaccine can protect adolescents and adults from tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. One dose of Tdap is routinely given at age 11 or 12.  VA requires that before entering middle school, student are up to date with this.  Be sure to contact the school nurse with documentation that your student has had it.
  • The 5th Grade promotion ceremony and 5th Grade Fun Day will be Tuesday, June 4th. Mark your calendars.
