Registration is open NOW. If your child is not already registered for kindergarten, please go to HES to register your kindergartner as soon as possible. Registering helps the school make appropriate plans for the number of students, teachers, and classrooms that will be needed in the fall. Waiting to register until late summer or the start of school can be disruptive for children at an already uncertain time. Students who have already been attending HES do not need to register again.

To register your kindergartner, bring these documents to the main office of HES:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Records
  • Proof of Residency: can be a copy of your mortgage statement, tax assessment or current lease

The HES office is open from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday- Thursday for registration. Questions? Call the main office at 301-209-5800. For students whose language is other than English, please call ISCO 301-445-8460.
