2019 Kindergarten Open House - UPDATED Information

March 21, 2019

Hamilton Southeastern Schools is preparing to welcome the Class of 2032 this fall. Kindergarten enrollment for the 2019-20 school year is now open.

Hamilton Southeastern Schools has been monitoring the legislative work around early entrance to kindergarten.  The Indiana guidelines state that in order to register for kindergarten your child must be 5 years of age on or before August 1, 2019.  Last year funding was removed for students with a birthday that fell after August 1st.  We are happy to report that recent actions by the Indiana Legislature restored funding for students who want Early Entrance to Kindergarten and have birthdays that fall between August 2 and September 1, 2019.  The appeal process for Hamilton Southeastern Schools is outlined below.

Early Entrance to Kindergarten:

Hamilton Southeastern Schools has an early entrance policy for kindergarten.  Your child must be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2019 to qualify for early entrance to kindergarten.  No assessments are necessary.  However, if you are unsure about early entrance or kindergarten readiness, you may contact our central office at 317-594-4100 to consult with our Director of Elementary Education.

To enroll your student with Hamilton Southeastern Schools for the 2019-2020 school year, click here.   If you have already submitted paperwork for Early Entrance enrollment, we will begin processing those in the coming weeks. 

All incoming Kindergarten students as well as incoming 1st grade students coming from private school, are invited to attend Kindergarten Open House on April 11, 2019 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.  Every elementary school will be hosting an Open House, including Southeastern Elementary School, slated to open Fall 2019.  Please note that the Open House for Southeastern Elementary will be held at Hamilton Southeastern Intermediate/Jr. High.
