Parents of children who will be starting kindergarten in Utica Community Schools in fall 2017 can begin the registration process at a kindergarten open house being held at all UCS elementary schools on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 p.m.

At the open house, parents will have the opportunity to learn about the district's nationally-recognized kindergarten program, meet the teachers and building staff and submit school registration forms.

Children are eligible for kindergarten if they turn five years old on or before September 1, 2017. However, children who turn five between September 1 and December 1, 2017 are eligible to enroll in kindergarten if their parents submit a waiver form.

To register, parents must supply:
