KEYSER - Mineral County Schools have announced upcoming registration dates for students entering kindergarten and pre-k/Head Start for the 2019-2020 school year.
This year pre-k registration will be held during the week of Feb. 4 -8. Registration will take place at the student’s home school. Parents or guardians should call the school for kindergarten registration days. Parents are asked to bring the child’s birth certificate and immunization records to the registration.
Each school has designated a day(s) during that period for registration and applications to be completed. Please call your district school for an appointment.
Dates for each school’s registration are as follows:
Feb. 4: Burlington Primary
Feb. 5: Wiley Ford and Elk Garden
Feb. 6: New Creek, and Fountain
Feb. 7: Keyser Primary School
Feb. 8: Frankfort Intermediate and Keyser Primary Schools
Keyser Wee Care, Catamount Children’s Center, KinderCenter and Small World Academy will be participating in registration during this week; parents/guardians must call for an appointment.
To enroll in kindergarten, children must be 5 years of age prior to July 1, 2019.
To apply for Pre-K/ Head Start children must be 4 years of age prior to July 1, 2019.
Children three years of age prior to July 1, 2019, 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 finish the application process.  A Pre-K Head Start staff member will be available at the schools 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.
