VBCPS again hosting Kindergarten Registration and School Orientation event

For families at the beginning of their educational journeys with Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS), the division is hosting the annual Kindergarten Registration and School Orientation event, which takes place Tuesday, April 23, at 9 a.m. at all of the division's elementary schools (with the exception of Newtown and Bettie F. Williams since those schools do not have kindergarten programs).

Parents of children who will be 5-years-old on or before Sept. 30 are invited to attend this event.

While families can register their child for kindergarten any time leading up to the school year, this registration event includes an open house for future students and their parents, tours of the school and an overview of the kindergarten program. Students also will experience a school bus ride for the first time and meet with kindergarten teachers while parents fill out the necessary registration paperwork. Activities may vary by school.

Registration forms are available at www.vbschools.com. In order to register their child for kindergarten, parents need to bring the following documents:

  • two proofs of address: 1) a lease agreement/mortgage statement; and 2) a current gas, electric or water bill
  • a certified copy of the child's birth certificate
  • a physical examination (dated within 12 months prior to starting kindergarten)
  • a current immunization report
  • two current emergency contact phone numbers

Parents can determine their child's zoned school for kindergarten by visiting the School Locator/Map Center on www.vbschools.com, or by calling their neighborhood school. Detailed registration information and an overview of the kindergarten program can be found on the division's kindergarten registration page, www.vbschools.com.

For more information about kindergarten registration, parents should contact their neighborhood school or the Department of School Leadership at 757-263-1088.
