Kindergarten Registration

Please click link above for information on Kindergarten Registration for the 2015-16 school year.



Where do I get a registration packet?

Packets are distributed at Kindergarten Registration Night, March 19th at 6:30 at Wait. 


When and where do I register?

Bring the completed packet and documentation to your Screening appointment on April 10th


Should I complete all paperwork before registration?

Yes, it is to your advantage to have all paperwork completed when you come in to register.  Medical forms and immunization records may be mailed to the school office before the start of school if not complete or up-to-date at registration. 


Do I register if I my child was a preschooler at Wait? 

You do need to attend registration and screening in April.  Birth certificate, Social Security, and proof of residency are already on file and not required at the time of registration/ screening.  The medical paperwork should be submitted or mailed to the office before the start of school.  


If I have registration questions, who should I contact?
Please call Sue Stockard, Wait Secretary at (330)422-2400.
