The Maryland State Department of Education requires that all children who will be five years old by September 1 of the year they are requesting entry must register for enrollment in Kindergarten. 

Immaturity Waivers

Parents or guardians who feel that their children are not mature enough to begin school may request in writing a waiver of one year for this regulation.

Letters are addressed to: Superintendent of Schools and sent to the Office of Pupil Accounting and School Boundaries at 14201 School Lane, Upper Marlboro, Maryland 20772.

Please include in your request the child’s name, date of birth, parent/guardian’s name, address, and phone number. A written response will be made to your request.


Kindergarten registration begins April 9, 2018. While kindergarten registration may be accepted anytime, it is hoped that families will make a special effort to register early at the boundary elementary school. Early Entrance to Kindergarten information will be available at the school sites.
