2024 Kindergarten Registration Kickoff
2024 Kindergarten Registration Kickoff

If you have never been a parent in WJCC Schools, please create a new ParentVUE account.

To enroll in kindergarten, a child must be five years old on or before September 30. Current Bright Beginnings students who will attend kindergarten next year must complete the online pre-registration process for their zoned kindergarten school.

Parents are encouraged to pre-register their child by completing a brief online form in ParentVUE. Once online pre-registration is complete, the school registrar will contact families to finalize the registration process. Outreach from school registrars to families will begin after March 20, 2024. Early registration is encouraged to help schools plan for kindergarten enrollment.

Provide the school with:

  • Photo ID for each parent/guardian (examples: driver’s license, DMV-issued ID card, or passport)
  • Certified copy or affidavit of birth certificate
  • Current Immunization Record
  • Physical Examination Record
  • Two (2) Proofs of residence (example: a lease or utility bill)
  • Custody documentation, if applicable

NOTE: Families enrolling more than one child for the first time must pre-register all new students before pressing the “submit” button.

Each child must receive a comprehensive physical examination within 12 months prior to beginning kindergarten. The Code of Virginia does not allow a grace period for this requirement. This examination includes a health assessment (including height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure, TB Risk Assessment, and physical exam), developmental screening, vision and hearing screening, dental screening, and hematocrit/hemoglobin screening. A blood level screening may also be needed.

Please let the school office or school nurse know of any special medical problems your child may have so we can best handle any emergency.

If any of the registration requirements cannot be met due to homelessness, school staff will be notified to assist the family with enrollment under provisions of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act.
