USD 489 will host the district-wide kindergarten round-up for 2018-2019 at 6:30 p.m. March 1 in the Hays High School cafeteria. This meeting is open to parents and guardians only. Parents of students who will have children 5 years old on or before Aug. 31 are encouraged to attend.

Information will be shared with parents and guardians to prepare incoming students for kindergarten. This will be the only kindergarten round-up hosted by the district. Parents and guardians will receive a pre-enrollment form to fill out that includes ranking students’ preferential school.
