Register Your Student
Welcome to Wethersfield Public Schools
Registration for students in grades Pre-K through 12 occurs through an on-line registration process. If you do not have access to a computer please visit the Wethersfield Public Library or contact Suzanne Curtin in the Registration Office
at 860-571-8162 for assistance.
Please follow the three steps below to register a new student in one of the Wethersfield Public Schools.
If your student is a Wethersfield resident, he/she must be registered with our school system, even if he/she plans to enroll at a regional Magnet, Technical or Vo-Ag school.
Important Notes About PreSchool Registration
Please do not register your preschool student unless you have been notified that your child has been accepted into the program.
Families of children who do not require special education services that would like their child to attend the Wethersfield Public School Preschool program as a peer playmate must enter a lottery. This lottery is held in the spring prior to the upcoming school year. Typically, 18 peer playmates will be selected to participate in the prek 3 program. Once a child is accepted into the program, he/she do not have to reenter the lottery for the following school year for the prek 4 program. A prek 4 lottery will only be held if openings are available for the upcoming school year. The Pre K lottery ends on March 11th.
Information on becoming a Peer Playmate is publicized on the district website and in local newspapers in December/January.
Children must turn 3 by October 1st of the upcoming school year in order to apply to participate in the lottery.
Families who would like their child to be considered for the peer playmate program need to complete an application by specified deadline. Families should call to get an application from the pupil services office (860-571-8141) or by clicking here.
Families that submit the completed application will be invited to bring their child to a peer playmate screening. Observational information will be gathered during a 30-45 minute screening. Focus areas during this screening include: personal social, communication, cognitive and motor skills.
Students who demonstrate age appropriate skills in the above stated areas will be placed into the second phase of the lottery. This will consist of blind selection of student names. Children not selected will be placed on a waiting list. Please note that peer playmates must be toilet trained prior to start of school.
Important Notes About Kindergarten Registration
Any child 5 years old on or before January 1, 2023 is eligible for the kindergarten registration for the school year 2022-2023.
Kindergarten registration begins on February 1st each year. Please register your kindergarten student prior to May 1st. School-based orientations for parents are scheduled in April (Please contact your elementary school for more information). This orientation provides parents the opportunity to meet staff and learn more about the kindergarten program and the school.
Story Time, a school visit for the new kindergarten students, will occur in May. Parents will receive information regarding Story Time, once their child has been registered.
If you plan to withhold your child from kindergarten for the school year, Connecticut State Law 98-243 requires that you personally appear at the elementary school and sign a document indicating that your child will be held out for the year. The purpose of the legislation is not to interfere with the rights of parents but to provide information to assist in making an informed decision.
