Photo: It’s registration time.
From the beginning of time – probably the 1970s – registering your five-year-old into Belmont kindergarten was both a joyful occasion (the beginning of 13 years of public education) and an odious process in which parents would need to deal with mountains of papers, forms, documentation and subsequent copies to place your child into the school district.
Well, the need to scale Mount Paper is now a thing of the past as the Belmont Public Schools announces its new online registration process for incoming kindergarten students.
Registration for incoming kindergarten students will be initiated online at the following link.
The online registration portion should be completed by March 1. After completing this step, parents will be notified via email of the next steps in the registration process.
Kindergarten Parent Information Night
A general information and orientation program for all parents of incoming kindergarten students is scheduled, as follows. Each elementary school will host its own program at each school.

- Burbank School: Thursday, March 24 at 6 p.m.
- Wellington School: Thursday, March 31 at 5:30 p.m.

In order to qualify for admission to kindergarten, a child must be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2016. As always, proof of residency is required.
