Children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 30, 2018. 

When will kindergarten registration take place?

Between 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on April 19, 2018, parents should register their children at the school they are zoned to attend. To find the correct school, parents may call 804-966-9650 or look at the attendance zone map.
