Hello Kindergarten!

Getting Started with Wilkesboro Elementary 2021-2022

We are happy to welcome you to Wilkesboro Elementary!

Kindergarten is one of the best parts of life, and we look forward to sharing this important year with your family. This page is designed to help enroll your child in kindergarten at Wilkesboro Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year. Students who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2021 are eligible for kindergarten.


To get started, please complete the form below. You will also find a school tour, videos of our teachers, and a 3-step process for enrolling your child in school. This page can be translated into other languages by using the tool on the right.

Step 1 - Complete the online enrollment form.

Click here to access the online enrollment form. If your child was in WCS pre-k classes this year, please use the "snap code" we sent home.


Please complete the bus transportation form (also in Spanish) if you need bus transportation.


If you live outside of the Wilkesboro Elementary district, you will also need to complete the school of choice form. This form applies even if you have another child already at WES.


The online enrollment form takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. We suggest using a computer or tablet, as the form is hard to do on a phone. If you need access to a computer, please call our office at 336-838-4261 to make an enrollment appointment. We are glad to provide access to a computer and help you.

Step 2 - Bring your paperwork to school by March 26.

Please bring the following documents to Wilkesboro Elementary by March 26, 2021.


  • photo ID of parent/guardian
  • certified birth certificate of the child
  • proof of residence (copy of bill with your address)
  • proof of guardianship (if applicable)
  • health assessment and immunizations (must be completed by child's doctor and submitted by August 2021)


Our office is open from 7:30 - 4:00 Monday - Friday. Please ring the bell and our office staff will be glad to take your documents and make copies if needed. If you prefer to submit your paperwork electronically, please send an e-mail to Amy Williams at williamsamy@wilkes.k12.nc.us (with the subject line: WES kindergarten registration 2021).

Step 3 - Sign up for a Fun Times appointment this summer.

We plan to hold face to face Fun Times events on Tuesday, August 10, 2021. Please sign up for an appointment time for your child now at the link here.


We will send you an e-mail or phone call reminder during the summer. We will also send full details of how these appointments will work.


Once you have completed steps 1-3, we will notify you that we have received everything needed for your child's enrollment. If you have questions, please call our office at 336-838-4261.
