2018 Kindergarten Registration

2018KindergartenBanner

Hello Prospective Madera Parents!

Many people are asking for information about the best way to register their child for Kindergarten this fall (Kindergarten enrollment in the West Contra Costa Unified School District for the 2018-2019 school year begins on Monday, January 8). After having spoken with various people “in the know,” I’d like to encourage prospective Madera families to register online from home (instead of coming early to wait in line outside the school). This is the best way to enroll and keeps you out of the cold. I even heard a rumor that the online registration link will become active at 12:01 a.m., so you may want to stay up late the night before and get it done then!

Your online registration will secure your child’s “spot in line” for enrollment, however, everyone will still need to come to the school to present certain documents for physical verification (even if you uploaded them online). School secretaries are required to see these documents in person before certifying that your registration is complete. I encourage you to do this as soon as possible! It’s best to come on the morning of Monday, January 8th to finish the process. However, if you are unable to do it the same day, it should be done within a week of submitting your online application.

Documents that you need to bring to school are:

  • Age Verification: Student’s Birth Certificate or Baptismal Record
  • Verification of student’s residency (see link for qualifying documents).
  • Your valid photo ID as the parent, guardian or caregiver of student being registered
  • Documents required under special circumstances as outlined on linked doc (if needed)
  • Student’s Immunization record

The school will have computers set up and available at 9:00 a.m. for people without reliable internet access. Contra Costa Social Services also has computers available for use at 1305 MacDonald Ave in Richmond. They open at 8:00 a.m.

Since we may not see all of you on the morning of registration, I also wanted to encourage you to sign up to receive the PTA’s Kindergarten Newsletter. The newsletter will provide helpful information about Kindergarten and Madera in general, as well as keep you up-to-date on events such as the Spring Incoming Kindergartener playdate and summertime meet-ups. To sign up, please provide your us with your contact info here.

Thank you. I hope registration goes smoothly for everyone, and I look forward to meeting you!

  1. If anyone is looking for the actual link to registration, here it is: https://secure.infosnap.com/family/login.aspx. You have to create a SNAP account if you haven’t already to register. The registration for 2018/2019 is not available as of 8:17 pm Sunday January 7, 2018. It would have been nice if this article actually included the link where you register at WCCSD.

  2. FYI, the wccusd.net website states that online registration is not open until 9am on Monday Jan. 8.

    • Yes that is the official time. However last year the registration site went live shortly after midnight, and school leadership was informed by district representatives last week that it would likely be the case this year as well. So far the site is not live, but we are checking periodically. Good luck!

  3. Is there any kindergarten open day / tour for the parents of new student? If not, can I schedule a visit? Thanks.

  4. Superb blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of
    any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about in this
    article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get suggestions from other experienced individuals
    that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thank you!
