Student Registration Information
Registration for students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12 occurs through an on-line registration process. If you do not have access to a computer please visit the Wethersfield Public Library or contact the Curriculum Offce at 860-571-8142 for assistance.
Please follow the three steps below to register a new student in one of the Wethersfield Public Schools.
If your student is a Wethersfield resident, he/she must be registered with our school system, even if he/she plans to enroll at a regional Magnet, Technical or Vo-Ag school.
1. Carefully review the following:
- Registration and Residency Requirements (pdf)
- Elementary School District by Street
(to find your home elementary school)
2. Complete the Online New Student Registration process.
You will create a new account first. Save your login information in case you need to return to this site.
Please note, your registration is not complete until you have completed step #3 and are approved by the Wethersfield Public Schools Residency Officer.

3. Schedule a visit at your new school(s).
At the completion of your online pre-registration, you will be prompted to schedule a brief session at your child's school. You will need to bring several required forms with you for this meeting. These are listed when you complete the online process. The information is also listed above in step #1, Registration and Residency Requirements. Please continue with the registration process even if the health form is not yet complete.
Please submit the health form as soon as possible, as the health record must be on file prior to the student's first day of school; but do not delay the registration process while waiting to complete the physical exam.

A few important notes about Kindergarten registration:
Any child 5 years old on or before January 1, 2018 is eligible for kindertarten registration for the school year 2017-18.
Kindergarten registration begins in February 1st each year. Please register your kindergarten student prior to May 1st. School-based orientations for parents are scheduled in March (Please contact your elementary school for more information). This orientation provides parents the opportunity to meet staff and learn more about the kindergarten program and the school.
Story Time, a school visit for the new kindergarten students, will occur in May. Parents will receive information regarding Story Time, once their child has been registered.
If you plan to withhold your child from kindergarten for the school year, Connecticut State Law 98-243 requires that you personally appear at the elementary school and sign a document indicating that your child will be held out for the year. The purpose of the legislation is not to interfere with the rights of parents but to provide information to assist in making an informed decision.
If you wish to speak with the school nurses, please call the school nurse at the school your child will attend.
Each Wethersfield School is staffed by a professional registered nurse who oversees the school health program. The school nurse works as a liaison with other school personnel, families, and the community regarding the health and well being of the students.
The following is a partial list of the services provided on a routine basis.
