Special Notes for Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten registration for the Fall of 2021 begins January 4, 2021.  At this time, all 11 elementary schools will begin accepting new registrations for kindergarten students who will be 5 years old by September 10, 2021.  We encourage families new to Helena or who have children now ready to start kindergarten to register and enroll in the Helena School District as soon as possible.  To register, drop off your forms on January 4th from 7:30am – 8:30am, or call your neighborhood school and arrange an appointment to drop off registration forms.  These are required in order to register!

  1. Proof of age through a certified birth certificate
  2. Proof of current residence, e.g. rental agreement, tax statement and/or utility bill.
  3. Complete Helena School District registration form – available HERE or at your neighborhood school, including providing important emergency contact numbers.
  4. Provide proof of immunization records**

** Montana State law requires all students to be immunized against Diphtheria, Pertussis (whooping cough), Tetanus, Polio, Measles, and Mumps & Rubella (MMR).  Exceptions are allowed for verified religious and medical reasons only.  Proof of immunizations must be provided on or before the first day of school.

All students who are eligible for Kindergarten must enroll in the school within their home boundary/established residence area.  If you are uncertain about which school your child will attend, please call (406) 324-2031 for guidance.
