Kindergarten Enrollment Process


We are now accepting new enrollments for the 2024-2025 school year!  


Kindergarten Round-Up Information

Kindergarten Round-Up will be held on March 12th and April 9th, 2024.  Meetings will take place in the Greyhound Central Elementary Gymnasium from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Parents should attend one of the meetings. Information about enrollment, busing, programs, and curriculum will be presented.  There will also be an opportunity to meet the teachers and hear about how you can prepare your child for kindergarten.


We encourage you to visit the enrollment page to fill out and send in your forms/documentation. Children must be 5 on or before September 1, 2024, to enroll.  Students who turn 5 between September 2 and December 1 may still be enrolled with a waiver completed by the parent. 


Call or email Vicki Koehn, Enrollment Coordinator @ 517-663-1313 or [email protected] for additional enrollment information.


Kindergarten Visitation Day - By appointment ONLY

On Wednesday, May 29, 2024,  your child will have an opportunity to visit Greyhound Central Elementary. Once your Enrollment forms have been submitted, you will receive a Sign-Up Genius link to reserve a spot. This visit will allow the teachers to do an initial screening of social, emotional and academic development of your child.  Your kindergartener will meet the teachers and take a tour of the school.  Please Note: If you need a Hearing/Vision Screening, your visitation will be in the AM only.  


Hearing/Vision Screening - By appointment ONLY

Hearing/Vision Screen date is 5/29/24 AM only as of now.   Appointments will be scheduled when you turn in a completed enrollment packet. 


You may also contact the Barry-Eaton County or Ingham County Health Departments.  They provide free hearing and vision tests for children starting kindergarten. Call BEDHD at 517-541-2630 or ICHD at 517-887-4500 for more information.


Kindergarten Oral Health Screening

The Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment law [Public Health Code Act 368 Section 333.9316] was passed to ensure that children entering their first year of school are able to receive an oral health assessment (dental screening) prior to starting school. Good oral health is important to help children stay healthy and ready to learn. This required assessment will let you know if your child has any dental problems that require attention by a dentist. The assessment must be conducted by a Registered Dental Hygienist, Dentist, or Dental Therapist.
