IS IT TIME TO ENROLL MY CHILD FOR KINDERGARTEN?
Families are eligible to enroll kindergartners who will be five-years-old, on or before Sept. 1, 2022.
Exception: According to Michigan Law, a child may be enrolled in kindergarten if he/she is not five years of age on September 1, 2022, but will be five years of age no later than December 1, 2022 and parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing (Kindergarten Waiver Form) that he or she intends to enroll the child in kindergarten.
If you are considering enrolling your student using a Waiver Form, we STRONGLY suggest that you reach out to our team to talk through your child's readiness. If this is you, please email the principal at NayalMaktari@wlcsd.org
