Kindergarten is mandatory in Maryland, so if your child turns 5 by September 1, 2024, you must register your child for the 2024-25 school year. Parents or guardians are to register students at the school serving the address where the child’s parent or guardian resides.  Information on neighborhood schools can be found through School Locator: on the school system web site or by calling the Public Information Office at 410-313-6682.



Step 1: Register Online Here: https://www.hcpss.org/enroll/

Step 2: Choose the 2024-2025 Registration Packet

Step 3: Complete registration online by providing the documents listed below. The registration process is easier if you upload them during online registration. Otherwise, you will be asked to submit them via email as pdfs, which will delay your registration. iPhone users can scan documents through your notes app. (Images must be clear.) 

 The following documents are required for registration:

●        Child’s evidence of birth (ie: birth certificate, baptismal certificate)

●        An authorized record of immunizations

●        Proof of residency in the form of your entire signed lease or deed     

●        Current utility bill, dated in the last 30 days

●        Photo ID of parent/guardian

●        Proof of custody (if applicable)

Please be sure to complete this information if you are registering for Kindergarten.  It is required:

Prior Care

  • What type of schooling did your student have prior to Kindergarten? (Needs a value of 2. ie: if PK for a half day (1) and with parent the other half (1) = 2 or PK full day = 2)

Language Survey Information:

1.   Home Language:  this is language family uses at home to communicate with one another

2.   Dominant Language: this is language the student is most comfortable speaking or prefers when able to speak multiple languages. If a family is confused about this (b/c child speaks more than one language) ask, “which is your child’s strongest language?"

3.   Native Language: this is the language student learned first and may be only language the student communicates in.


  • If you have a child currently attending an HCPSS PreK program, there is no need to re-register your student for Kindergarten. Also, if your child is a current HCPSS student at HHES or any other HCPSS school, please DO NOT re-register your student.
  • If you have a multi-family living arrangement, an appointment with our PPW, Cheryl Hurbon is required. A representative of the host family and guest family must be present for the appointment. Email Cheryl_Hurbon@hcpss.org for more information.

Health Forms - These forms should be completed by your child's pediatrician and dentist and emailed to our nurse Cheryl_Mcnerney@hcpss.org or health assistant Kim_Carter@hcpss.org prior to the first day of school or as soon as your child has their 5 year check-up.
