Kindergarten Registration

In the Meriden Public Schools, children who are 5, or will be turning 5, in a given school year, will be eligible to enter kindergarten. Proof of age must be provided at time of registration. Children born in 2014, or on January 1, 2015, are eligible to start kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year.

School districts in Meriden are determined by street address. You can call the Central Registration office if there is a question of which school your child will be attending and if he/she will be provided transportation.

After submitting your child's registration information, come to the Central Registration Office to complete the process. This step will include: verifying your residency (see the link below for what is accepted), providing your child's birth certificate: Meriden requires the long form birth certificate, we do not accept the short form, any legal/court paperwork regarding custody and guardianship, any special education records and records from the previous school, if available, along with the parent's ID.

High School Registrations require withdrawal paperwork from the previous school, current schedules and transcripts. After completing the online registration and providing the required documentation to Central Registration, an appointment will be made by the School Counseling department of your district high school.

IF YOU ARE REGISTERING YOUR CHILD FOR THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR (beginning August 28, 2019), PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT THE 2019-2020 STUDENT REGISTRATION OPTION.  YOU WILL NEED TO RE-SUBMIT YOUR CHILD'S REGISTRATION IF IT IS COMPLETED IN THE WRONG SCHOOL YEAR.
