Kindergarten Registration

Dalton Local Schools kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be held all day Wednesday, March 18th (8 AM-4 PM) and by appointment only 12-6 PM on Thursday, March 19th at Dalton Elementary School. Students do NOT have to attend, this is to complete paperwork.

Parents should call 330-828-2405 (option 2) between the hours of 9:30 AM-3:30 PM or email Mrs. Horst if a Thursday appointment is needed.

Children must be five years of age on or before August 1, 2020 to enter kindergarten. Parents should bring the following documents to registration:

  • a certified birth certificate
  • social security card
  • proof of residency (utility bill)
  • custody papers (if applicable)

Only a legal parent/guardian is able to register a student.
