• Fargo Public Schools is excited to welcome incoming Kindergartners on Monday, August 28, 2023!

    Parents are able to complete online registration beginning on February 1, 2023. The registration process should take approximately 15-20 minutes per student. It is recommended to collect the following information prior to beginning the online registration process.

    • Student Address and Contact Information
    • Parent Address and Contact Information
    • Emergency Contact Information
    • Student Health Information, including physician and dentist name and contact information

    Please note: your child must be age 5 by July 31, 2023, to attend school in the fall.

    Attention ECSE families: students currently enrolled in the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) program or students who are currently in its evaluation process do not need to register for kindergarten at this time, as students are already in the FPS system and will be promoted to kindergarten status accordingly. ECSE families will receive an email to update registration forms in July.
