Enrollment Age Requirements
A recently enacted Michigan law amended the Revised School Code (MCL 380.1147), which changed the minimum age requirement for a child enrolling in kindergarten. Children must turn 5 years of age on or before September 1 of the school year of enrollment, in order to register for school.
Children who turn 5 after September 1, and not later than December 1, may request an early entrance waiver to attend kindergarten.
Please give our district office a call at 616-493-8800 to receive the most accurate information concerning whether or not you reside within the Forest Hills Public Schools District.
