Kindergarten Registration During Closure
Welcome, we are excited for your child to join Provo City School District! The following will provide you with information regarding the registration of your incoming Kindergarten student. Children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 are eligible for enrollment.
Registration is a 3-step process, mainly done online.
Submit basic information.
The school’s registrar will create a Powerschool Parent Account and send you an email with further instructions. This process will happen between the months of May and June. Registrations that are submitted during the month of August will only have a week’s delay, and once school starts, it will only be a matter of days. Please contact your school’s registrar to get a more accurate idea.
Login to Powerschool using the information sent to you in the email from the registrar.
Fill out the second portion; this should take you approximately 20-30 min. If you need assistance, please contact your school, or visit our office.
Provide the following documents to the school.
- For a Kindergartner seeking enrollment for the current school year visit our Student Registration page.
- For those seeking enrollment for the next school year, submit the paperwork once schools are back in session. Please do not send any documentation through email.
- Child’s birth certificate
- Child’s immunization records – including dates of all shots, or exception certificates. Children may register but cannot attend school until immunizations are up to date and a copy of the record has been turned into the school. Please see the information about immunization for more details.
- Proof of address (example: utility bill or rental agreement)
- Photo ID
- TB testing (if applicable)**
**Utah County requires proof of tuberculosis testing for ALL foreign-born students* entering schools for the first time, and students who have lived in a foreign country* for six months or more within the past five years. *except Canada
For registration to be complete both the online information and the above-named items must be received by the school.
If you know of families with kindergarten-age children who will be attending school next year, please share this information with them.
Kindergarten – Here We Come! Pamphlet
The Utah State Office of Education together with the Utah Family Center and the Office of Child Care developed a pamphlet to support your child’s learning before entering Kindergarten. The pamphlet is available in English and Spanish or for a paper copy please contact your school.
Individuals with Disabilities
Provo City School District is interested in alleviating any unnecessary stress to individuals with disabilities. When students with disabilities are beginning school for the first time in a Provo school, they and their parents are encouraged to visit the school to identify barriers, which may require adaptations to accommodate their needs. To expedite any such accommodations, early contact with the Principal will be helpful.

To claim a personal, religious or medical exemption, the legal guardian must complete an on-line educational module (free of charge) and provide a copy of the completed form to the school official. The on-line course can be found at www.immunize-utah.org. Completion of the online educational module can be done at the Health Department if you do not have access to a computer. For a medical exemption, a written note from a licensed health care provider must be provided along with a copy of the completed online educational module. It should state the physical condition of the student, and why that vaccine would endanger the student’s life or health.
A physical examination, including vision screening, and a dental examination are recommended for students entering kindergarten, for the first time. Although exams are not mandatory, they are encouraged as a means of assisting parents and teacher to remain well informed about the child’s physical well being. Utah County Health Dept. Wellness Clinic performs physicals for $30. Appointments can be made by calling 801-851-7031. Physical and dental exams and immunizations are advised in the Spring and early Summer to avoid crowds in the fall.

If your student has any medical condition that needs attention during school time, please contact the school nurse.
