Kindergarten Round Up 23-24

Registration for Kindergarten & Young 5's for the 23-24 School year will open on this page beginning February 13th.  Please revisit this page at that time for complete directions.  We will have a link to sign up for your Kindergarten Screening appointment, our Principal's Welcome Video, and complete instructions for this year's Round-Up!

Children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2023 (or not later than Dec.1, 2023 with an approved waiver) are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten.  

We will be offering a full-day Young 5's in the 2023-24 school year in addition to our regular full-day Kindergarten program.  Placement in the Young 5's program will be determined by date of birth, assessment results and student need.  Young 5's students must also be 5 by 9/1/23 or not later than 12/1/23 with an approved waiver to be eligible to enroll.

Please click below for the required Waiver for children whose birthday is between Sept. 1st - Dec. 1st to be eligible to enroll in Kindergarten or Young 5's.  Completed Waivers may be emailed to [email protected], or brought in-person to your child's Kindergarten Screening appointment in April.

Immunizations, Vision & Hearing Screenings:
Lapeer County Health Department Vision & Hearing Technicians will be on-site at Orchard Primary School during your child's Kindergarten Screening appointment to screen your child.

In order for children to enter school in the fall, they must have received their required immunizations and have had a vision screening within 6 months prior to the start of school.  A hearing screening is strongly recommended.  If you have not yet begun this process, we urge you to do so now as it takes a period of time to complete.

Your county Health Department provides immunizations, vision and hearing screenings on specific days free of charge.  For schedule information please call your county's Health Department. 

The Lapeer County Health Dept., Child Services:  810-667-0448.

Schools of Choice Families

Thank you for beginning the process of enrolling your student with the Almont School District for the upcoming school year.  At this time we do not have specific information on our Schools of Choice program.  You may pre-register as of February 13th, but your acceptance as an Almont Community Schools student will not be guaranteed until the School of Choice program is available.

Our 23-24 OP Summer Office schedule will be:
Mondays - Thursdays 8am - 3pm from June 12th - June 22nd, and
Mondays - Thursdays 8am - 3pm beginning Aug 7th
Closed June 23rd - August 6th, 2023
 

According to Michigan Law, if a child residing in the Almont District is not five years of age on September 1, 2023 but will be five years of age not later than December 1, 2023, the parent or legal guardian of that child may enroll the child in kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year if the parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing that he or she intends to enroll the child in Kindergarten. Completing and signing the registration form for enrollment is sufficient notification.
