Wake County opens kindergarten registration

The weather didn’t help, but kindergarten registration for the 2015-16 school year kicked off Thursday for the Wake County school system.

Parents are asked to register at their child’s base school – which is the elementary school assigned to their address – for the 2015-16 school year. Go to http://bit.ly/1aojPaD to look up your base school.

Families assigned to the new elementary schools opening in August – Abbotts Creek and Scotts Ridge – are asked to register at their 2014-15 base school because the new campuses are still under construction.

Parents need to register soon if they want to participate in the magnet school application period that runs from Jan. 26 to Feb. 5. Students need to be already registered in Wake’s computer system to be able to have a magnet application.

Go to http://bit.ly/1IAAAfH for more information on kindergarten registration, including what documents are required.
