    Early Entrance to Kindergarten Request Process
    February 05, 2018

    According to policy set by the Indiana Department of Education, a child must be five years of age by August 1, of the year they enroll, to enter kindergarten.  The MSD of Lawrence Township gives parents/guardians the option of requesting early entrance to kindergarten if a child’s birthdate falls between August 2nd and October 31st of the year they enroll, but the Early Entrance Request Process must be followed. 
    If your child was born in 2013, and will be turning five years old between August 2 and October 31, 2018, and you want your child to attend kindergarten, you must request Early Entrance to Kindergarten Assessment for the 2018-2019 school year. 

    The window to request Early Entrance will be open online from February 20, 2018 to April 20, 2018. 

    After filling out the request, you will be contacted via email and will be given the next steps in the process.  Your child may also be scheduled to attend a summer camp class one day between June 4 and June 15, 2018.  While there, observations will be made about your child’s interactions with children and adults in the classroom setting. 

    Be sure to check the township website,, between February 20th and April 20th, for the link to make your Early Entrance to Kindergarten Request for the 2018-2019 school year.
