  3. Deed or lease to your home
  4. Current utility bill
  5. Photo ID of parent/guardian registering the student

Please visit the Howard County Public School System website for complete information about enrollment and registration,  https://www.hcpss.org/enroll/kindergarten/. There is also great information on Getting Ready for Kindergarten!

If you have a child currently attending an HCPSS Pre-K program, there is no need to register your student again for Kindergarten. However, please contact West Friendship Elementary with your child’s name and where they currently attend Pre-K.

Children registering for KINDERGARTEN in the fall of 2019 must be 5 years old by September 1.

  • Every child who is 5 years old by September 1 must be enrolled in a kindergarten program this fall or have an approved waiver.
