• Laughing children showing diversity and inclusion



    Welcome to Westerly Public Schools! Your child must turn 5 before September 1, 2021 to be eligible for kindergarten.  In order to register your child you will need:

    • A completed registration packet.  You may download the Kindergarten Registration Packet or contact Student Registration to have one mailed to your home address.

    • Your child’s Birth Certificate (do not mail an original)

    • Your child’s most recent physical and immunization records

    • Proof of residency which must be a lease, mortgage statement, Westerly tax bill or current utility bill.  If you do not have an acceptable form of proof of residency, call 401-315-1502 before sending any documents.  

    • A copy of your current drivers license for personal identification (can not be used as proof of residency)

    • Custodial paperwork (if applicable)


    The completed packet and all supporting documents can be sent to Student Registration after January 11, 2021 in the following ways:

    • Completed packets and all supporting documents can be scanned and emailed to Student Registration at mbarber@westerly.k12.ri.us

    • Completed packets and a copy of all supporting documents can be mailed to Student Registration, 23 Highland Avenue, Westerly RI 02891.

    • An appointment can be made to drop off the completed packet and all supporting documents curbside.  Please note that our buildings remained closed to visitors and walk-ins cannot be accomodated.

    Incomplete registrations will not be accepted. 

    Once your emailed (or mailed) documents have been received, you will receive a follow up phone call.  Your child's registration is not complete until a telephone interview has been completed.  If you have any questions regarding the registration process or would like to schedule a time for curbside drop off, please contact Student Registration at 401-315-1502.  

    Per Kindergarten Policy (No. 2512):  Kindergarten students will be enrolled in their neighborhood school for the upcoming school year on May 1st.
