  • Registration must be completed for every child entering Kindergartenª. This includes students who attended Prekindergarten in Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS); therefore, your prompt attention to this matter will ensure that your child is ready to attend school in the fall.  The parent or legal guardian must enroll the child in the school that serves their home address of recordt.
