Pocahontas kindergarten screening and pre-registration

Children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2023, are eligible for kindergarten enrollment.

To help plan for classes and transportation, Pocahontas Elementary School (PES) will conduct kindergarten screening and pre-registration at the Pocahontas Elementary School Friday, March 31,8:30 a.m.–2 p.m.

Parents should contact Kim at 618-669-2296 to schedule a screening time. The entire process will take approximately 45 minutes. If you cannot make the date and time scheduled, please contact the office to schedule another time.

Screenings and pre-registration will take place in the PES office. If your child attends KRP, they will be pulled out of class to complete the screening. During this time:

  • students will be given a kindergarten readiness screening;
  • parents will complete a pre-registration form and a transportation form;
  • parents must bring birth certificates and shot/immunization records;
  • parents will receive information about kindergarten and August enrollment.
