Kindergarten registration will begin Monday, February 20, 2017 in Kannapolis City Schools. Children that will turn five years old on or before August 31, 2017 are eligible to be registered for the 2017-18 school year.

 

Families should register their rising kindergarten children by visiting the elementary school that is in their attendance zone. KCS attendance lines will change for the 2017-18 school year because the district is adding magnet programs and a sixth elementary school.

Families that live within the G.W. Carver Elementary attendance zone should visit Kannapolis Intermediate School (KIS) to register their children for kindergarten. KIS is located at 535 East “C” Street and will become G.W. Carver Elementary in August. Families in all other attendance zones should visit their assigned school to register children for kindergarten.
