    Kindergarten 2020-2021 Online Registration

    Our district is working very hard to get the approximate numbers to expect for the next school year involving Pre-K and Kindergarten students. Although we are in this precautionary extended closure, it's very important to go ahead and complete this online process if you haven't done so already. That way, our involved staff can prepare better to serve you and your child during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Families with a child currently enrolled in a Wilson County school:

    • Log into existing Skyward Family Access account to add your incoming Kindergarten student in the section titled “New Student Online Enrollment.” 
    • If you have a Pre-K student currently enrolled in a Wilson County School, they can enroll as an existing student. For those families, you will be informed beginning July 8 to login to your account and complete the “Returning Student Registration” process.

    Families without a child currently enrolled in a Wilson County School:

    Due to the closure of schools as a result of COVID-19, the program we use to sign up for pre-enrollment appointment times, Signup Genius, has been temporarily removed. Pre-enrollment appointments are being postponed along with Kindergarten Fair nights, but please go ahead and begin the registration process online. We do look forward to meeting prospective students and parents, and we will share new pre-enrollment dates and times when we have more information for you.
