The Class of 2032! Kindergarten round-ups, open houses scheduled in local school districts for 2019-20 school year

Posted on March 20th, 2019

It’s the time of year when local elementary schools roll out the welcome mat for incoming kindergartners and their families, through open houses, school tours and registration activities.

For the 2019-20 school year, a child who resides in a public school district providing kindergarten may be enrolled if the child is at least 5 years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2019. For children who will be 5 by Dec. 1, 2019, parents may enroll their child through written notification to the school district.

Following is a list of kindergarten registration open houses, parent meetings and school tours planned throughout the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District’s 11 public schools (please note: some districts require an appointment and others do not):
