Kindergarten Information Night

01/04/18 06:00 PM - 07:30 PM

Parents and guardians children who will be five-years-old by August 1 are encouraged to attend Forest Hills’ Kindergarten Information Night on Jan. 4 from 6 p.m-7:30 p.m. at Nagel Middle School, 1500 Nagel Road.

The evening will feature overviews of kindergarten curriculum, developmental readiness, kindergarten readiness, attendance areas, schedules and the registration process. Principals and Central Office administrators will also be available to answer questions and help parents compare all-day and half-day kindergarten options.

Once a parent completes the online portion of the registration process, they should attend a Kindergarten Round-Up event to provide required documents for registration: parent/guardian driver’s license, child’s current immunization records, child’s official birth certificate, custody papers (if applicable), and proof of residence (mortgage, deed, rental/lease agreement).   A $75 deposit (check) is also required for all-day kindergarten registration.  This deposit will be applied toward the program tuition.

Round-Up events will be held March 8 from 4 p.m.-7:30 p.m. and March 9 from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Parents need to attend only one Round-Up event, held at student’s school of attendance. To find a child’s school of attendance, visit foresthills.edu/registration.

It is preferred that Round-Up events are parent-only events to help expedite the registration process and because students do not need to be present to complete the registration process.

Parents who cannot make the March Round-Up events should complete the online registration and then call Debbie Conover, registrar, at 231-3600 to make an appointment to provide the required documentation.

Parents are encouraged to complete the registration process bv March 16.

Tuition for the all-day program is $3,000 and will offset the additional operating costs and defer operating costs from taxpayers. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.  Those who need financial assistance should contact Mike Broadwater, assistant superintendent, at 231-3600 or mikebroadwater@foresthills.edu.

Per state law, the half-day kindergarten program will continue to be offered tuition-free and the state will provide partial funding for a half-day kindergarten program.
