Kindergarten Registration Information

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration 2022-2023 

Kindergarten students start school on Tuesday, September 6, 2022

Each year the Parent Information Center gathers demographic information for age eligible children from both the city census and several area preschools. Information on Kindergarten Registration is then sent to those families, our elementary families, other community organizations and also posted on our website.  

The communication for our 2022-23 Kindergarten Registration was mailed out to families on our list of expected Kindergarten Students. If you do not receive a notice from our office, you are encouraged to contact us to confirm that your child is on our list or needs to be added.  

Kindergarten Eligibility

Children whose parent/legal guardian(s) are living in Waltham may enroll in Kindergarten with the Waltham Public Schools if they have reached 5 years of age on or before September 1, of the new school year.  

Kindergarten Registration Information

You can register your child for Waltham Public Schools using the Aspen Online Registration Form. Online registration is a process that involves a few steps starting with requesting an Aspen account to access the registration form in English or Spanish. We have provided information below to guide you through the steps. If you are having difficulty with our registration forms or do not have technology available to you at home, the Waltham Public Library offers free computer access to library card holders. 

In-person student registration is available by appointment only with the parent or legal guardian of the student. Please contact us by phone 781-314-5524 (English) 781-314-5668 (Español) or by email to PIC@walthampublicschools.org as soon as you have all the required documents for student registration. You may also request a phone, or video appointment. If you are unable to keep your scheduled time, or arrive late to an appointment, you will need to contact our office to reschedule.

Copies of all required documents (see below) can be sent to the Parent Information Center by email, US mail, or placed in the secure drop box located outside the entrance of the Waltham High School, 617 Lexington Street.

Students that have not been medically cleared before the first day of school, may not attend until documentation of all missing medical requirements have been received and cleared by a school nurse. 

If you have any difficulty completing or submitting your child's registration, please contact our office for assistance.
