Kindergarten


Welcome to the Glastonbury Schools!

We look forward to working with you to provide an exceptional educational experience for your child. If we can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact the registrar at registrar@glastonburyus.org or 860-652-7940.

Any child who will be five years of age on or before January 1, 2020 and meets all residency requirements, is eligible to begin kindergarten at the start of the 2019-20 school year. It is important that you register your kindergarten student as soon as possible, beginning in January of the year they will be starting school in the fall. If you have any questions, please contact the registrar at registrar@glastonburyus.org or 860-652-7940.

If you plan to enroll your child at a magnet school for kindergarten,

you still MUST register with Glastonbury Public Schools.

Register Your Kindergarten Student

Please review and follow the three steps below to register your kindergarten student at Glastonbury Public Schools.

1. Carefully review the following:

2. Complete the Online New Student Pre-Registration process.

Click on the Pre-Register button below. You will create a new account first. Save your login information in case you need to return to this site. Please note, your registration is not complete until you have completed step #3.

3. Schedule a visit at the Glastonbury Public Schools Central Office.*

At the completion of your online pre-registration, you will be prompted to schedule a brief session with our Registrar, Laurie Grenus, to complete your student's registration. You will need to bring several required documents with you for the registrar to scan. These are listed when you complete the online process. You may also click here for more information on the required registration documents. The registrar is located at the Glastonbury Public Schools central office at 628 Hebron Avenue (the only 5-story building in the complex).


*Please continue with the registration process even if the health form is not yet complete. Submit this form as soon as possible, as the health record must be on file prior to the student's first day of school; but do not delay the registration process while waiting to complete the physical exam.

A Few Important Notes About Kindergarten

Kindergarten Visitation:

In April and May, each school will hold Kindergarten Visitation Days. Incoming kindergarten students will be able to visit the kindergarten program in their home school while classes are in session. At this time, parents will have the opportunity to meet staff and learn about kindergarten programs and the school community. After you complete your child's registration, you may call the elementary school directly to schedule an appointment to attend a Visitation Day with your child.

Withholding Child from Kindergarten

If you plan to withhold your child from kindergarten for the school year, Connecticut State Law 98-243 requires that you personally appear at the Glastonbury Public Schools Central Office and sign a document indicating that your child will be held out for the year. The purpose of the legislation is not to interfere with the rights of parents but to provide information to assist in making an informed decision.

We look forward to working with you to provide an exceptional educational experience for your child. If we can assist in any way, please do not hesitate to contact the registrar at registrar@glastonburyus.org or 860-652-7940.
