Kindergarten Information 2019-2020

Kindergarten is an exciting time for families and students and it's the goal of the district to ensure a smooth transition into the Southington Public Schools. Below is all the information you need to guide you through the process.



Southington Public Schools will hold their annual Kindergarten Registration Information Session for all parents who have children entering kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at J.A. DePaolo Middle School. This session will provide general information about the registration process and the day-in-the-life of a kindergartner. If you are not able to attend the session on January 29th, your next steps are included below, along with the handouts that will be distributed that evening.



The online registration site will be available on Monday, February 25, 2019.

For anyone who does not have access to a computer, you can take advantage of the computers available at the Southington Public Library; OR, you can coordinate using a laptop when you schedule your appointment to bring your required documents. The online process takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
