Kindergarten Registration

Registration events set for April 17th and 24th
Posted on 03/18/2021
Kindergarten Registration Expo

Bedford Public Schools is excited to start registering the newest members of the Bedford family for the next school year: the Class of 2034!

Our Kindergarten Registration Expo will run a bit differently this year due to COVID safety protocols. We have set up 2 dates in April (details below). We are limiting attendance to only one parent/guardian and no children. We will send home a swag bag to share with your newly registered Kindergarten student.

Masks must also be worn at all times and social distancing practiced.

The school principal and Kindergarten teachers will also be available at this event to answer questions about the Kindergarten program in their schools.


Time slots for each specific school:

(Note for current Young Fives and Kindergarten Students: You do not need to re-register for 1st grade/Kindergarten for next year as long as all of your original registration information has not changed.
