Hays USD 489 will have an information meeting for parents on kindergarten roundup in March. It will be the only such meeting for the year.

The meeting is for parents of any child who will be 5 years old on or before Aug. 31. It will be at 6:30 p.m. March 7 in the Hays High School cafeteria, 2300 E. 13th. The meeting is for parents only; childcare will not be provided.

At the meeting, parents will be given a pre-enrollment form on which they can rank the district’s four elementary schools in the order they would prefer their child attend.

The district will take the ranking into consideration but does not guarantee children will be placed in the top school of choice, according to a press release from the district.

Pre-enrollment forms must be returned to the USD 489 board office, 323 W. 12th, by March 22 for the first choice of school to be considered. The district will notify parents of their children's’ school assignment by the end of April.
