The Dearborn Public Schools will hold a Kindergarten Round-Up meeting this spring at every elementary school in the district to give parents the opportunity to find out about their neighborhood school and enroll their child for the fall semester. The schedule of dates, times and locations is listed below.

Children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2017 must be five years of age by September 1; however, waivers for this requirement are available.

Under a State law that went into effect four years ago, the kindergarten entry date has been gradually changing from December 1 to September 1. However, parents with a child whose birthday falls after the new September 1 deadline have until August 15, 2017 to complete a simple waiver that will allow them to enroll their child in kindergarten this fall.

If a child turns five years of age after September 1, 2017, parents must apply for a waiver to enroll them in kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year. Waivers only need to be completed in the year the child will be attending kindergarten. There is no waiver available for children turning five after December 1.

The waiver is available at all elementary schools, and the Student Services Office located in the Administration Building, 18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124, or on the District’s website: www.dearbornschools.org.

The Dearborn Public Schools also offers an optional Young Fives program for children who were born between June 15 and December 1, and are age-eligible to enter kindergarten this fall. Young Fives is a year-long all-day program and classroom instruction includes kindergarten curriculum to help children develop the academic and social emotional skills they need to succeed in school.

Children will move on to kindergarten at their neighborhood school the year after attending the Young Fives program. Space is limited. The program is held at Lindbergh, Geer Park, and Salina Elementary schools with more Young Fives programs opening up this fall. Parents should check with their local elementary school and must provide transportation. Please call 313-827-3005 for more information.

All parents who have a child who will be five years old by September 1, 2017 should plan to attend a Kindergarten Round-Up at their neighborhood elementary school. The Kindergarten Round-Up provides parents with the opportunity to find out about their neighborhood school and enroll their child for the fall semester.

The District’s 2017 Kindergarten Round-Up schedule is listed below. Parents should call to let the school know they will be attending the Kindergarten Round-Up so that information packages can be prepared and they can be notified if the presentation date changes due to unforeseen circumstances. However, parents should still attend even if they are not able to call in advance.
