Dear Families,

Welcome to Wellesley Public Schools! We are pleased to announce the Kindergarten Registration “Round-Up” for the 2022-2023 School Year for children who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2022.  Kindergarten registration notices are being mailed out to families based on Town census data.

Online Registration

Step 1

To begin, go to https://wellesley.powerschool.com/public/formbuilder/form.html?formid=2684803 and fill in your pre-registration information. Your pre-registration will be reviewed by the district Registrar during school hours. Please note that families of students currently attending PAWS Preschool should skip Step 1.

Step 2

Wait to receive an email from the Registrar during school hours with further instructions for logging into PowerSchool where you will complete the remainder of the online registration forms and upload your required documents. Families of students currently attending PAWS Preschool should login with their usual PowerSchool username and password, they do not need to wait for an email from the Registrar. Required documents include:

  • Immunization Record
  • Student’s Birth Certificate or Passport
  • Photo Identification of a parent/guardian (i.e. MA Driver’s license or passport)
  • Proof of Residency 
  • Proof of Occupancy
  • Custody Agreement (if applicable)
  • Individual Education Program (IEP)/504 Accommodation Plan/English Language Learner (ELL) Records (if applicable)

Please be aware that your enrollment is not complete until ALL required forms and documents are submitted and approved by the Registrar.

If required, nurse follow-up and English Learner screenings will occur at individual schools by appointment.

We encourage all families to begin the registration process as soon as possible.  Questions regarding Kindergarten registration should be directed to the Marissa Capone,  District Registrar at 781-446-6210;5600 or registrar@wellesleyps.org.  If you do not have access to a computer or smartphone, please contact the District Registrar to make an appointment to complete the process at the Central Office.

Please note that if your child is age-eligible but will not start kindergarten in the 2022-23 school year, we ask that you notify us that either you will defer your child’s attendance for one school year or that you have enrolled your child in a private/parochial/other school.  In both of these cases, you do not need to complete the registration process.  These notifications allow us to plan more effectively for space and staffing needs for the incoming and future cohorts of Kindergarten students. 

Written deferment requests should be sent to:

Cynthia D. Mahr, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations
Via email registrar@wellesleyps.org (preferred)
Or postal mail: 40 Kingsbury Street, Wellesley, MA 02481

Registration for Grades 1 through 12 will begin on March 1, 2022.

Once placement decisions have been made, kindergarten students and their families will be invited to tour the building and meet the principal.  We anticipate these events will take place in April and May  Whether you are a new or returning family, we are excited to begin this journey with you and look forward to welcoming you to our Wellesley Public Schools’ family.
