Kindergrten Registration
Children who are 5 years old before September 30th can start Kindergarten on September 3, 2019. But first, they need to be registered. To register your child, bring the items listed below to your zoned elementary school:

•  An original certified State Birth Certificate;
•  A certificate of physical examination from a physician or a health department;
•  An immunization certificate containing complete dates for Hepatitis B, DPT, Polio, Varicella, and MMR immunizations;
•  Proof of residency in the City of Suffolk (i.e., water bill, gas bill or electric bill. Driver's License will not be accepted.)

Who can attend Kindergarten?  Virginia School Law says that children may enter school if they are five (5) years old on or before September 30, 2019.

Compulsory School Age ... Children who are 5 years old on or before September 30 should be enrolled unless the parents notify the school that they will wait a year. Children who are 6 years old by September 30 must be enrolled in school. Children who reach their sixth birthday by September 30, 2018 and who were not enrolled in kindergarten previously may be placed in kindergarten or first grade. 

Use the School Locator at to find out which school your child should attend.
