Fort Thomas logo

2017 – 2018





Kindergarten and first grade (new to the district only*) registration will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2017 from 8am to 3pm for residents of the Fort Thomas School District.


Registration will be held at each of the 3 elementary schools:


Robert D. Johnson Elementary

1180 N. Ft. Thomas Ave.


Ruth Moyer Elementary

219 Highland Ave.


Samuel Woodfill Elementary

1025 Alexandria Pike



Registration is NOT based on a first come, first served basis for the morning vs. the afternoon sessions in kindergarten.  If requests exceed the class size limit, then a lottery will be held. 


Sign-up for an optional all-day kindergarten program must be made by 3pm on the date of kindergarten registration.  If you have extenuating circumstances that prevent you from registering on February 16, such as a medical procedure, please submit documentation to the school office before that date. 


Change in Birthday Cutoff Date for Kindergarten  
In 2012, the Kentucky Legislature changed the birthday eligibility cutoff date for kindergarteners effective in the 2017-2018 school year. Children entering kindergarten must now turn 5 on or before August 1.


Children born on or before August 1, 2012, are eligible for the kindergarten class of 2017 – 2018.  Any child entering first grade must be six years of age on or before August 1, 2017.  If you have a child or know of a neighbor who has a child that is age eligible and wants to be considered for enrollment, this child should be registered at the elementary school of residence on February 16.  Please bring the child’s certified birth certificate, social security card and 2 proofs of residency (rental lease, utility bill, tax bill, etc.) to the registration.  To make the registration process easier, several of the documents are available on the district website and can be completed ahead of time.  These documents are listed under the Resources for Parents section on the district website.


For questions, please call the elementary principal or the assistant superintendent for student services at 859.815.2011.  For more information about kindergarten options, including the optional All Day Kindergarten, check the district website at:  www.fortthomas.kyschools.us
