Kindergarten Roundup

Kindergarten Roundup
Posted on 04/14/2020

Dear Parents of Prospective Kindergarten Students,

We are so excited that you are interested in enrolling your child into Kindergarten for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year at Southwest School Corporation! Since the current circumstances will not allow for us to meet face to face for Kindergarten roundup, as we have in the past, we will complete Kindergarten Roundup/Enrollment online this year. 

In order to do this, you will need an internet connection to access the following website. This is a video that will walk you through the steps we will highlight in this email and attachment.

The help video for Kindergarten Roundup website is:

https://vimeo.com/153463374

This instructional video is very useful in walking through the following steps. Be sure to watch the entire video before you start the registration process. We will only work through the first 4 minutes and 30 seconds of the video today for the Kindergarten Roundup. You will get a registration code for your student later (around July 1st) to get your child linked to your new or existing harmony family access account and finish the registration process.

Here are a few of the highlights from the video you just completed.

Please be sure to leave your name, student’s school, and students name that you already have enrolled in school.
