Welcome class of 2035!

The Waterford School District is calling the parents of incoming kindergarten and junior kindergarten students to begin their child’s academic journey. Parents are invited to attend the Virtual Kindergarten Orientation and Expo to learn more about the district. Administrators will provide an overview of the nine elementary schools, quality kindergarten curriculum offered and take parents on a journey through a typical day in the life of a kindergarten student. The Kindergarten Orientation will also include a variety of informational stations for parents to learn about food and nutritional services, transportation, childcare, early childhood education and more! In addition, the District’s Central Enrollment staff will be on hand during the virtual event on Jan. 11 to answer questions and enroll students.

  • Parent identification (valid driver’s license)
  • Custody papers (If applicable)
  • Proof of residency — three pieces of proof are required in total.

Have the landlord’s name and phone number available for verification. The second proof must be a utility bill. The third proof must be another piece of mail. Examples: payroll stub, car insurance bill, credit card statement, or bank statement. (A driver’s license is not proof of residency.)

If your child is not five years old on Sept. 1, 2022, but will be five years old no later than Dec. 1, 2022, you may enroll your child in kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year, but parents must complete a Kindergarten Age Notification Waiver, which is available at Central Enrollment.
