Kindergarten Registration for SY 2024-25


For students new to Howard County, you can now begin the online registration process! It is recommended that you work on a laptop or desktop to complete registration. Cell phone registration is not recommended. For details about registration and enrollment, visit Please call our PLES front office at 410-313-6886 or email Mrs. Self or Ms. Sutkaytis with questions.

If you have a child currently attending an HCPSS PreK program, there is no need to re-register your student for Kindergarten. Also, if your child is a current HCPSS student at PLES or any other HCPSS school, please DO NOT re-register your student.

Kindergarten is mandatory in Maryland, so if your child turns 5 by September 1, 2024, you must register your child for the 2024-25 school year. Parents or guardians are to register students at the school serving the address where the child’s parent or guardian resides. Information on neighborhood schools can be found through School Locator on the school system web site or by calling the Public Information Office at 410-313-6682.
