Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions 

When should my child start school?
Parents often enroll their children in preschool prior to kindergarten or elementary school. Most preschools accept children at 3 years old or older, but the age to start preschool can vary. Educators agree that children who attend a preschool with experienced staff and a stimulating environment are better set up for success in later years.
Does HSE have a preschool?
Yes, HSE Schools does offer a preschool.  To learn more about our preschool offerings, visit https://pre.hseschools.org/about/welcome
How old does my child need to be to start kindergarten at HSE Schools?
Any child who is age of five (5) on or before August 1 of a school year will be admitted to the kindergarten program at Hamilton Southeastern Schools. Parents may appeal for “early entrance to kindergarten” if they turn five (5) years of age between August 2 and on or before September 1 of the enrolling school year.  Parents will need to submit an Application for Early Entrance to Kindergarten prior to enrollment.  The appeal process automatically grants eligibility for early entrance to kindergarten to any child who will be five (5) years of age on or before September 1 of the enrolling year as verified by an official birth certificate.
Does my child need any immunizations?
School immunization requirements are determined by the Indiana State Department of Health.  For more information, please visit the Indiana Department of Education website at: https://www.doe.in.gov/safety/health/immunizations
What do I need in order to register and enroll my child in school?
Step 1: Determine which school your student will attend by visiting our MySchool Locator. The school your student will attend is determined by your home address. Still don't know? Search by subdivision.
Step 2: Gather the following information and documents:
     State-issued Birth Certificate
     Photo ID
     Proof of Guardianship or Custody
     Proof of Residency
     Current Immunization Records
Step 3: Complete the online registration. If you're new to the district, you'll have to create a NEW Skyward account. If you already have children in the district, you'll need to log into Family Access on Skyward. Select "new student online enrollment" in the upper left-hand corner. Remember to complete each section of the enrollment. You will not be able to submit the enrollment information to the district unless ALL SECTIONS have been completed. If you are having trouble enrolling online, please contact your child's school.
What happens once I finish online enrollment?
Once your online enrollment has been submitted, you will be notified via email of its completion.  You will receive a Skyward login where you will find information you will need with regards to teacher assignment, class schedule, bus route, etc. Please note this information typically populates the week prior to the start of the school year.  In upper grades, you will also meet with a counselor to go over classes, etc.  Those meetings will occur towards the end of your current year.
Who should I call if I have questions about the enrollment process? 
Once you know what school your child will attend, you can reach out to the registrar or guidance department at that school for assistance. 

Is there a deadline to enroll my child?
No, but enrolling early helps the District ensure the balance of classrooms and teachers across the schools.
