KEYSER - Mineral County Schools announces registration dates next week for students entering kindergarten and Pre-K Head Start for the 2018-2019 school year.  
This year, pre-k registration will be held during the week of March 12-16. Registration will take place at the student’s home school.  Please call the school for kindergarten registration days.
Parents are asked to bring the child’s original state birth certificate and immunizations records to the registration.
Each school has designated a day(s) during that period for registration and applications to be completed.  Parents should call the school in their district for an appointment.
Dates for each school’s registration are as follows:
March 12: Burlington Primary and Keyser Primary
March 13: Wiley Ford and KinderCenter at Wiley Ford, Elk Garden, and Keyser Primary
March 14: New Creek, Fountain and Keyser Primary
March 15: Keyser Primary
March 16: Frankfort Intermediate and Keyser Primary
Keyser Wee Care, Catamount Children’s Center, and Small World Academy will be participating in registration Monday, March 12,  through Thursday, March 15, and you do not need an appointment.
To enroll in kindergarten, children must be 5 years of age prior to Sept. 1, 2018.
To apply for Pre-K Head Start, children must be 4 years of age prior to July 1, 2018.
Children 3 years of age prior to July 1, 2018, who meet Head Start income guidelines or children with special needs, should also apply.  
To apply for Pre-K Head Start, parents must visit the https://mineral.preschoolsteps.org website and click on “APPLY NOW.” After completing the simple online application, parents will be instructed to contact their school for an appointment to review all required documentation and complete the application process.  A Pre-K Head Start staff member will be available on the dates listed above to answer parents’ questions, review necessary documents and assist parents in completing this process.
Children already enrolled in a Mineral County Pre-K Head Start Program or in an approved Child Care Partner’s program need not register for kindergarten as they will be automatically enrolled for kindergarten in their attendance area. However, Pre-K Head Start registration is critical as enrollment may be limited and timing is essential.
Parents may call their local schools or child care centers for an appointment and for more information.
